Actually... I disagree with these low expectations... This guy is the Class of the OF prospects (Not including Delmon Young)... He has improved his contact/eye at all levels, and actually hit for a better average the higher he has gone..
He has an outstanding arm, and is a very good defender.. he is VERY fast,and will eventually hit for power as well... (Power is always last to develop, and increases with age, and maturity)
A 5 tool prospect all the way
Lastings Milledge will probably spend most of this year in the minors, with a chance at a call-up later in the year.. But should be contributing in '07 Full-Time as the LF or RF while Beltran is around
As long as he continues to improve the way he has so far.. he has Abreu/Beltran type of ceiling...
The Mets could have traded for Manny Ramirez, but quickly declined, when Boston asked for Lastings Milledge... Manny is a stud, but not at the price of losing the potential of a Lastings Milledge
