I really hope so, I just traded Victorino and Josh Fields for Zimmerman and Young in a keeper league. His athletic talent will explode, the question is when.

It's a shame that his talent for taking a walk will never explode , because if it did I would be interested in him.
604 PA in 2005 for 29 walks. 501 PA in 2006 for 16 walks. Wow that's explosive! :-o

last time i checked 90% of fantasy league's dont count walks.
so what does it matter, he takes his hacks which makes him a threat to start mashing.

If he does have a breakout this year, I think it is still a few months away. He is still struggling with pitches out of the zone. I know he will never lead the league or his team in walks, but he still needs to learn to not swing at the pitch 8 inches off the plate just because it is straight. :-b He has really grown by several leaps already this year, so if that stays true, I could see him go on a mashing spree this September or late August. He has all the tools in the world, he just needs a bit more time before becoming an offensive force.

Since when is a .308 OBP a guy who 'gets on base'?

I predict a 15-18HR, 80-90RBI, .250 - 270 AVG. It's not horrible for a rookie, on whom too much was expected. And please, we saw him explode last year with the bat incident. No explosions!
