I understand that age is probably the biggest negative going against him, but aside from that, doesnt he project to be a +.300 hitter given the usual minor league projection techniques? Also, hasnt there been an awful lot of players that have made immediate impacts in the majors after first getting called up?
Maybe its just me, but I can see Bruce hitting closer to .300 this yr considering he was the minor league player of the year in 2007 and the type of stats he was putting up so far this yr.
Gordon was minor league player of the year in 2006 and struggled mightily through most of his first year. Delmon Young was minor league player of the year in 2005 and is still falling short on most peoples expectations after two years. Point is that even the best and most hyped prospects have chance to struggle when called up to the majors. I agree with J35J, we should temper our expectations to avoid great disappointment...
