In the last two months, Khalil did hit 8 homers, drove in 31 rbi, and slugged .506.
Granted, I still wouldn't draft him next season: he's not worth the risk, especially while still playing 1/2 his games in Petco.
I agree. It's an awful comparison to use Khalil since he battled injuries the entire year.
But having watched him, he seems pretty special and I wouldn't be surprised if he became the Pads best hitter as soon as 06.
