Clay Buchholz still has great stuff, but needs to learn how to pitch.

Joey Votto - i mean this was a huge prospect and has had bright spots here and there since his call up...but can we expect 30 hr? or close to 100 rbi?
Chris B. Young - looked to be a valid canidate for a 30/30 season this year and isn't even sitting on 15/10 yet this year...this cat gonna get the average back in check and start hitting the ball or what?
I never really saw Votto having a huge power upside. I always saw him as more of a Sean Casey 1st baseman.
Chris Young has had strikeout problems. Last year he provided what i expected his peak to be, 30/30 with a lousy batting average (though 230s is lower than expected). If he could produce better numbers than 2007.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
