Even though this is only spring training, I'm hoping for a legitimate 5/6 hitter who can hit 15-20 HR's.
Is that too much to ask?
Like ive been saying since he was first called up, this kid has a chance to be special.
He has a rare ability to take walks at a young age. combine that with the pop in his bat, and his budding defensive ability...
I think that because of his awkward, likeable personality, and the fact that he shot through the minors so fast hes had to take most his pro AB's in the Majors, people have lost track of the fact that he has the makings of a star player. I think these next couple years hes going to get the attention of the rest of baseball.
Watching Chase Headley these last few years, I always had a feeling he had all the tools to become a superstar. Last year he broke out, and I wasnt surprised at all. I have the same feeling about Belt.
