He's generally thought of as kind of a low upside guy, so maybe he does hit 30 HRs, but no one "should have seen it coming", IMO
I sorta disagree... he really is a "I should've seen that coming" guy... he could go 35-110 with that lineup. rookie year he goes 21-76, soph campaign, with nagging injuries all year, he improves to 23-94. now with an amazing top of the lineup and protection, he could make the leap from a 7th-9th round guy, to the 2nd/3rd round. That's a guy youre gonna say, "Goddamn, I should've seen that coming!"
This is what I was thinking.
