Why isn't there more talk about James Loney (.377/.423/.547 in AAA)? I know he doesn't hit many homeruns (8 in 358 AAA at bats; 0 in 72 MLB at bats) but from what I've looked at, he's a better prospect than Lyle Overbay ever was.

seemed he was a top prospect for a while, then had a rough year, but he has bounced back quite nicely

kind of reminds me of Sean Casey

he won't be a star in the league, but will be an above average 1B

I think Loney, Chris Carter, and Eric Duncan will all turn into solid major league regulars.

Sickels said that Loney is the guy he's most surprised with.
