I don't think Jeremy Reed ever had power as a tool...

I'd say yes as he got Dimaggio comparisons.

Jody put together a surprising decent season last year. He might just squeeze in a decent 2 or 3 years.

I'd say J.D Drew in a way.

He was supposed to be the next coming of christ, and injuries have derailed him to an extent.
He's still an amazing real-life hitter, but fantasy-wise meh.

What look at all that money he has got, you tell me he's not all he's "paid" to be? ;-)

Former 1st rd pick (#21 by the Mets in '98) that should have had massive power (can hit the ball 300 feet in BP) to go along with his other 4 tools. Managed only 4 HR's in 4700 MLB and MiLB AB's. Crashed and burned.

note - I am joking



BOOOOOOO!!!! Go easy, I went to school with Tyner. :-)
