finally time he lives up to his hype? 24 years old, been in the leauge 3 years now, means ready for breakout season? I remember him being touted pretty highly a few years back he just hasnt been able to breakout at the pro level.
His BA has gone up each year:
63 AB- .271
146 AB- .286
130 AB- .298
also isnt he noted for being a power hitter? yet he is batting leadoff?

Burroughs is far too stubborn for his own good -- he's been a top talent his whole life, his dad is a former major-league MVP, and Tony Gwynn became a legend in San Diego using the same shoot-the-ball-to-all-fields approach. Still, the Padres are frustrated with his refusal to alter his swing, and let his hips fire, so he can pull the ball into Petco's massive right-center-field gap for doubles and triples. Without more walks or extra-base hits, Burroughs is only a moderately-useful player, and nowhere near the star many expected.
