Well until this game, where I think he should of started, I think Grady has done a good job of getting him playing time. They didn't want to push him to much into action at first cause he is just from AA and sometimes it's hard being pushed right into a line up every day. Though with the way he is playing right now he deserves to get a bit more time and bench him maybe twice a week depedning on who is throwing where Lofton w/ his expereince might have the edge. You have to know Grady loves the kid, he has hyped the kid up himself ... I just think he doesn't want to push him to much.

I'm always a bit skeptical of the young kid that comes up and bashes immediately... As a general rule, they cool off quick once the league figures out What pitches he rakes and what pitches he whiffs on.... but occassionally you gt a Pujols who starts mashing from day one and never stops, but this is rare.

Grady Little is Havok. Havok is Grady Little. They are the only two poeple in the nation who don't think that a 6'2'', 230 lb beast who's hitting .378 with a .420 .OBP, 7 HRs, 16 RBI, 13 runs scored, and 3 SB in only 45 at bats should not be starting everyday.

HTH.


I like Kemp, not as much as I do Guzman, but I like him and he should for sure be the starting CF, at least until his hot streak ends. You need to realize that I like the guy and think he's a good prospect just not elite. Lofton isn't anything special anymore and the only reason why he is getting some starts is because of his cost. Kemp should for sure be the starting CF right now.


I think prospect rankings should be taken with a grain of salt. I realize that Guzman was regarded as the better prospect than Kemp coming into this season. However, that does not mean Kemp can't be a better player in the long run by any means.

Take a look at 2004's BA rankings for example:

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/pr ... 26983.html

David Wright was ranked behind Justin Morneau. Does this mean Wright will be worse in the long run? Not by any means.

Also, Kazmir was ranked behind Edwin Jackson and Greg Miller. I can tell you right now that Kazmir will blow away both Jackson and Miller in the long run.

2003? Same thing. Miguel Cabrera was ranked behind Teixeira, Baldelli, Reyes, Mauer, Brandon Phillips, Hideki Matsui. Who do you think will have the best career? Possibly Mauer but that is about it.
