In my league he can be kept for a 7th round draft pick next year and I'm close to trading him for Holliday right now (who can't be kept next year).

Anyone think he could start stealing some bases soon? Before the season this was his goal he said

"Batting average between .290 and .310, between 30 and 40 homers, 90 to 100 RBI and about 25 stolen bases."

He definetely has the speed to steal that many, and I guess he wants to if that was a goal.

How do you steal bases when you are always hitting homeruns? Seriously though I think he could get 10 from the looks of it this year but yeah 25 would be sweet.

I agree here. He will put up Holliday-like numbers - and being able to keep him for a 7th round pick is just money in the bank.

I don't see this guy slowing down at all. You'd have to send me a knock yer socks off trade to pry him away from my team.

Sigh....I remember in the draft he was taken 160th overall, and I remember saying "Great pick...you stole my next choice." :-S

Should have drafted him earlier. I took him at 102 in my 11 team league.
