He's going to be a superstar if he can stay healthy.

But why isn't anyone mentioning guys like Rios, Sizemore, Braun, etc. in 2-3 years they have a good shot to be where the Arods and Pujols' are now...
Those other guys aren't being brought up because 1) They can't produce like the other players mentioned and 2) Haven't done well long enough to warrant being in the discussion.
Braun could possibly enter the discussion, but I want to see more than one year of production from him. To me, Braun's K/BB rate is troubling, 112/29, and I'm not sold yet he can consistently have a +1.000 OPS (Not that many can). While Rios and Sizemore have very good hitting stats, they just aren't in the same category as a Miggy Cab or Pujols.

Now I am not saying he wont reach that number, but he hasn't yet. He does not steal bags. His glove leaves much to be desired and is destined for 1B. DWright has only hit the 30HR plateau once in his career, but he has a decent glove and can steal bags. And while the DET lineup may be conducive to scoring runs this season, they are all getting up there in age, while the Mets have a younger lineup that will be on base for Wright to drive in for years to come. Where is this infatuation with MCab coming from? I mean he is my #3 behind Pujols, but still...What am I missing?
