when he gets on someone is usually on 2nd or he hits a double.

I feel like he's adjusting to the major league game. He probably has a fair amount of raw speed but hasn't refined the mental part of the game--getting good jumps, knowing what counts to run on, which catcher/pitcher combos are vulnerable, etc.

Give him some time, although I think his ceiling this year is more like 15.

What do you think his home run totals will be? I traded Swisher for Young and am not sure if he'll hit as many home runs as Nick.

He might not hit as many HRs as Nick this year, but should have better numbers everywhere else.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Let him get going, he's in a cold slump right now and barely even getting on base. He'll have good final numbers.
