Alexis Rios called up...

Heads up to all. I wouldn't read too much into it, as he's probably the 4th OF for now, though (with Cat on the DL). However, if he plays well, he could be up for good.

Blue Chip prospect plays OF for the Jays

maybe what this offense needs, if they show they are going to play him, pick him up ASAP as he will either hit before Wells or after Delgado you would think

23 year old, 6 foot 5 (or 6'6 depending on what you read) outfielder prospect for the toronto blue jays.

projected to have juan gonzalez like power, long term.
was the MVP of some league,
and i believe he won a batting title in the minors,
hitting like 342 or something around that.

but i could be wrong about the last thing

Just a thought. Why do scouts compare prospects to HoF caliber players? Juan Gonzales? Juan reached the majors at age 19 and at age 23 he went for

.310/.368/.632, 46 HRs, 118 RBIs, 33 doubles, 105 Runs

I don't understand... :-°

my guess is it's more than just stats and projected stats that they are comparing,
but more of a plays like so and so,
or swings like, or reminds people of..
