Well, here is the slant froma homer....

I think he could win a batting title....He will never hit 30 HR, but I think he will make a career of being around .320-20-90 every year if not better.

In the minors he always hit for great average and modest power at every level....I would put him somewhere between David Ortiz and Sean Casey.....probably more like Ortiz, with a lil less power potential.

I would say he is a younger David Ortiz....and if he gets the chance to play everyday this season, he may be a nice 7th-9th round pick next year in most leagues.

lol... anyways i dunno too much specifically about Harvey and the Royals but i would imagine that for this year atleast his playing time will be limited a lil bit by Sweeney and Stairs. anyways, i think being a free swinger will cause him to go through some extended slumps in his first few years... and yeah, he has hit for rhidulously high BA in the minors too. personally, i'm not sold on him this year as a 1B unless its a deep league.

His swing reminds me of a right-handed Shawn Green. He looks physically like a power hitter but his minor league numbers indicate otherwise. Kcbelieves is a bit optimistic in his assessment, but I could see regular Sean Casey like seasons of .300-15-85.

somebody in some write up called him an "empty .300 hitter" he does not get many RBI or runs scored....

his biggest trait is hitting for average...

but that could change, who knows....

Harvey has been a free agent in my 14 team Roto league all year, and I have almost picked him up numorous times. I currently have Konerko at Util, and already have Pujols and Helton starting so I don't have room for him. I think he deserves a spot in leagues larger than 10 teams.

He's my replacement for Giambi in the Cafe Challenge. So far, I like what I see ;-D Playing time was really the only issue before, which seems ot be a thing of the past. He'll have decent power (25 HR's maybe) and hit for good average.
