He might be one of those guys who has a 30/120 BB/K to begin with. but at least he'll die trying :-b


He reminds me of an Andruw Jones-Lite

I'm thinking Sosa. He does that stupid hop sometimes too. He guy is eff'in jacked. There is no way that he isn't on something. No coincidence that they signed Manny.


I can maybe see that similarity with the bat but the fact Cespedes can play CF (despite his error today) I think sways it towards Jones IMO.

I was speaking from purely an offensive perspective, yes.

He certainly has poential and could develop into an elite talent. Playing in Cuba, however, is a lot different than playing MLB. I say he has a great first month until pitchers and scouts figure him out. IMO he'll struggle after that.

I'm a little confused at how anyone could have any opinion at all on him going into the season.

Anyways, for me he is still watch and see before I am willing to render an opinion on him. obviously, he has a lot of power, though.
