eddy has all the tools. he just doesn't use them all the time. sometimes, he goes to reach for one of 'em, and he just sort of stands there like, "hey, where'd i PUT that thing?" i'm kind of joking. but i'm kind of serious. it's a weird thing to watch.
he's quick as a cat. he can get to just about any ball hit on a line within 12 feet of him. what he does with it once he fields it, well...it's not like he can't make a strong throw to first (he has a cannon). he just, well, loses that tool.
same goes at the plate. sometimes he shows some plate discipline, but man, when they taunt him with the high heat, he just melts. he loves that pitch and will swing for no good reason. and he knows it. the look on his face after one of those ridiculous swings is the same: "where'd i PUT that thing?"
i can't help but believe some day he'll put it together in a big, big way. he oozes talent. when that meets maturity (vis a vis, brandon phillips), look out.
