I think what you see is people reacting to a hitter who will eventually challenge for the triple crown. Some think he will play at a high level in his first full major league season.
Some players can do this. Bay did it. Wright did it. Pujols did it as good as the greatest in the game.
Over 500 ABs he should hit 20+ HRs. I don't think that is selling him short or hyping him too much.
It's the upside that gets people crazy with projections.
