I'm not arguing that he is one of the best players in the game, but there's nothing wrong with saying the guy can reach those numbers in 2-3 years.
I think the point is that it's premature to compare Granderson to anyone like Abreu. He's a fine prospect and he intrigues us all as most young players do. He's improving his game and now we get to see what he can do at the highest level. His plate discipline tells me that he won't become a superstar overnight.
If anything, his power potential looks great based on the extra base hits he's been banging out in the last two years including this one. But he will struggle and he will need to prove himself to be an everyday player first. Right now, he is worth keeping an eye on but not a bench spot.
