Actually, he changed his approach at the plate this year. I think if he can continue the 2 strike approach, he will be very productive. He is also a lot faster than what his SB showed last year.

Yes, I was half-listening to Baseball Tonight, but they mentioned something about his new approach. I believe they said he's shortened his swing -- should reduce the number of K's but not lose too much power. I agree he should not be on the waiver wires.

Sounds to me like he's one of those speedy guys who just hasn't yet learned the fine art of translating that speed into stolen bases. I think his SBs will increase this year, I would expect at least 15 with an outside chance at 20. I also expect at least 20 HRs, maybe a few more. I owned him last year and certainly didn't get my money's worth out of him but I turned around and bought him back this year as I do recognize the potential.
