Another fun fact - Akil Baddoo is 22. Why are we not more excited?

And a former 2nd round pick out of high school... Got pedigree too.

I'm thinking this might be our fun breakout of the year.

If he was some guy on the Yankees or Red Sox this thread would be 100 pages. I mean, did you see that HR last night? Massive power and looks well beyond his years at the plate. Going to be a fun ride.

My trigger finger is itching. Waiting for the Detriot lineup to be released today. Anything in the 6 spot or below and I'm in.

I mean it's not like the 8th spot has been killing his RBI production so far.  I want to see him higher up the lineup too but at this point I think you have to just pull the trigger and see how this ends up.

You're right but if his manager is unwilling to recognize his talent and move him up I am going to assume he will keep sitting him a couple times a week.

I love this kid. Joy to own. Love the physical athleticism speed and power... His HR yesterday was opposite field again, opposite field power is a big indicator for me and I love to see it. He can turn on a pitch and pull it out down the line, he can go with it and go oppo taco, or load up and mash it 450 feet to CF... Love it.
