[quote="Krunk City King$"]funny how some talk as if they do not EVER see him cutting down on his K rate and improving on that in the future......maybe even next season.
afterall, he improved on hitting against lefties this season....dramatically.
and he improved on hitting after his junior year of college when his BA dipped below .300....which caused some scouts to think that this kid was not anything special....
my league penalizes for Ks......but if this man leads the league in HRs and in RBI after his second year in the league, in that lineup batting higher (finally), and in that shoebox ballpark....
i view him as a keeper and a first rounder down the road! he generated empty points early in the season cause he hit so low in philly's batting order. many of his HRs were solo. now there are more ducks on the pond when he comes to the plate nowadays.
his productions should increase next season. even with the Ks he is the 4th best 1st baseman in my league. behind Ortiz, Pujols and Morneau.
i agree with you for the most part. but i'd definitely take him over morneau
