EE reminds a bit of Adrian Beltre: a guy who has the tools to really put it together but for whatever reason does so only in fits and spurts. I would not be surprised to see him turn in a monster year or two (such as .290/30) in the future but still dissapoint more seasons than not.

This is his third MLB season, and it is a little worrying to read stuff about mental lapses like he is some kid straight up from AA. Dusty is also not the best person for him, and I would not be shocked to see EE marginalized at some point this season and ultimately traded, which might be a good thing based on the need for a change of scenery.

Trade would be a terrible thing for fantasy owners considering he now plays in the 2nd best home run park in MLB.

Another HR tonight. He's legit, but that won't stop me from trying to sell high.
