Except in this case there's some actual evidence that he should, rather than just rah-rah homerism and general youth. Nice try though.
Since you're quoting the experts.
"I really like his youth, power potential and improvement at each level."
That is John Sickel's take on Andy Marte in 2005, who he'd tabbed as the #1 hitting prospect that year.Fenris-77 wrote:Really? If you can't find a team that's big on average and short on homers then you're not looking hard enough.
