This reminds me of when a 3 year old claims that in 2 years, he'll be older than his 4 year old brother. He forgets that everyone else gets older, too.
Hanley will be a good player. But he'll never be Jose Reyes. And you'll never be older than your brother.
Actually, that is flawed logic. Reyes has 3 years of MLB experience to Hanley's 3 months. You can't say that because two guys are the same age that they will peak at the same time. There are many contributing factors. Who's to say that Reyes isn't close to his peak and Hanley will continue to improve over the next two years and get to the same level.
This is not (necessarily) my opinion, mind you - but just pointing out the logic flaw. The response from hybrid as to why Hanley won't reach that level makes more sense.
