How good will Delmon Young be?

Im think Vlad is his limit. But hell probably hit around Vlad numbers with about 10-15 less BA points and 5 less homers. And also depending on his supporting cast, the runs and rbi will differ.

so basically the same steals as vlad, whos steals are all over the place. just give a rough estimate of what you are thinking here as i could not even come close to guessing.

Just like pretty much every other five-tool player (Vlad, Beltran, Soriano), his HR, BA, and SB numbers will be determined by his team, lineup slot, and manager. He might be a .300, 40 SB, 20 HR #2 hitter. He might be a .280, 40 HR, 15 SB cleanup hitter. All I know is that he's going to be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd round talent for a very long time. ;-D

It's between him, Sizemore, or Glaus as my final keeper for next year.

Glaus shouldn't even be considered. His position is too deep, and he has a history of injuries. I'd take Sizemore, but only by a hair over Delmon.

Um, Glaus qualifies at SS in a lot of leagues, he definitely merits consideration.

Young has to learn to take pitches. He is averaging only about 2.5 pitches per at bat . I believe he has only 1 base on balls.I gave up Mark Teixeria to get Young recently. I would only have had Tex for one more year at $15.00 where as Young will be only $5.00 and I can add years to his contract after next year at $5.00 per year.

If he can stay out of trouble and continue to progress, then he will be a 40-40 player.

If he feels like running hes got the speed. So really your guess is as good as mine. But im gonna say 40 is Max while 20 is around his low. Youll probably see around 25-30 most years.

How about an au natural Jose Canseco with a batting average about .30 higher?

Canseco lifetime average:
.266
40HR
120 RBI
100 Rs
17SBs

That doesn't seem out of reach for the prospect BA and Sickels think is the best thing since...well....sliced bread?
