So how does everyone feel about him? Will he get reg ABs, and do you think he continues to be awesome?

From what I remember, ZiPS has liked him for the past couple years, and now that he's getting playing time, and is in Colorado, it seems like a perfect storm. I'd definitely give him a shot. They'll probably paly him over Helton quite a bit as long as he's palying well, and of course he can play the outfield once Carlos Gonzalez gets injured.

The power is real. I am a Cubs fan, so I saw a lot of him during his first few seasons. The problem has always been his ability to make contact and patience at the plate. Unlike a Dunn, he won't walk much and refuses to take a more balance approach at the plate. However, he's batting .300+ right now, so maybe something has clicked since going to Colo. I still remember that when he first came up with the Cubs, he strike me more as a Brett Jackson type of player. Some speed, good bat, but just can't make consistent contacts and lack of plate discipline.

I picked him up a little before the ASB. Hoping that he'll continue to pound the ball in Coors! :-B

Unlike the Cubs, the Rockies don't have anyone blocking him. They're also unlikely to trade for anyone this year, so I don't see any reason he can't get most of the remaining starts at RF there. He could even sneak into a regular cleanup spot until Tulo comes back unless Cuddyer gets his groove back.

You have to worry about his lack of discipline catching up to him, though. High K rate with low-and-declining BB rate means a correction might be coming. Or it might not. Ride him out! ;-D

Isn't Colvin just Viciedo in disguise? Power and tons of K in a nice ball park environment with hot and cold streaks written all over them. Opposite split between righties and lefties. One is build like a tank, while the one is like a walking piece of sticks. Other than that, they're pretty much the same player! :*)
