I agree with almost all of it.
All star and stud fantasy 2b I think he'll never be, but double digit steals is a lock, and he should hit for a 300 average because he has solid power to all fields which will give him a leg up on his competition. He'll be fantasy valuable, though 'd avoid him this year while he avoids the ropes. He struggled through half of 2005 which shows his transition to the MLB wont be easy.
I dont expect more than a .260 with maybe 14 steals and he may get a bit more than dozen homers. More than likely this year he'll be at the bottom of the order so that could have a negative effect on him as well.
