I dont get any of this post. Setting aside last year where he was hurt, he has produced seasons of
2005 .305 32 101 110 with 21 SB and 95 BB
2006 .286 35 109 101 with 11 SB 102 BB
So for the people saying he hasnt taken the next step I call BS. Those numbers are without a doubt number 1 outfielder material. No steps need to be taken. Hes already at the next level. All of that while playing on quite possibly the worst team in baseball. And for the people talking about this year. You got to be kidding. The guy is having an excellent year. His average is a little low and RBI total too, but he is showing all the signs that he is back at a top level. Considering this was a year where you could get him for a pack of twizzlers you have to be happy with J Bay. I see him getting traded to a contender soon and putting on a Beltran in Houston type display. In any decent lineup this guy would be a MONSTER!
