If pitchers have figured him out, that must have just taken place in the last couple of weeks 'cause last September he was 30-for-95 with 6 homers and 21 RBI. He didn't have a bad spring, either. I honestly think people should just recognize a slow start for what it is.

I agree fully w/ above.

If a guy goes cold for a couple of weeks in Mid-July, nobody even notices. Hitters hit.

What about the whole, he peaked at an earlier age than Cecil and now he's going to decline at an earlier age than Cecil if you think their career paths are that similar?

Whether you think Prince will have a great year or a bad year, you shouldn't be using this 40 AB sample size to plead your case.

Most you can try to do right now is buy low, but if you drafted Prince, well you're stuck with him for the time being.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Like me, took him 15th overall in my 14 team keeper league. I hope he gets hot.

I'd take the over and laugh all the way to the bank, then pray he doesn't get hurt.

I'll take the "over" on that easily (barring injury). He hit 28 HR as a 22 year old rookie, then 50 HR in 2007, and then 36 last year (which was considered a disappointment). The dude can bring the power and he will.

Things we need to consider:
- How tall is he?
- Is he eating meat?
- What is the state of his Federal and State Taxes?
- How interested are the Cubs?
- How many games does he play at New Yankee Stadium?
- Odds of a Bonifacio-like Inside the Park HR?
