Why are some people high on him?
Because everybody sees my location and know they should vote for Rocco in 2007.
He was a highly rated minor leaguer who has the tools to hit around 300 with 25 steals and 20 home runs in the future(something close to Sizemore). His first 2 years in the majors he showed some of his talent with good speed and a decent average. He has been injured the last 2 years but had a very good August and September hitting 325 with 11 homers and 7 steals. He flourished late in the season with the move to the leadoff spot, and if he stays there next year with Crawford, Young, and some other young bats hitting behind him, he should be a good source for runs. Basically most people are banking on a breakout of some sort from him next year. As far as my predictions, I am just hoping he can play 155 games or so and stay healthy. His O-Rank will be pretty low next year with the games missed the last few years, so he will be a great late round pick in yahoo leagues. In cafe leagues on the other hand, he will probably cost you a bit higher pick though.
