|don't fall in love just yet |
I have a feeling that the hype machine is going to be big here. The great thing about him is that he is only 22 (23 next August).|
So, I believe that we can expect GREAT things from Justin around 2013.
If you got him cheap last year and you are in a keeper league, keep him. But, I am not so sure that his hitting is the result of a natural skill set, just yet. Meaning: if he regresses to league average BABIP (or the .336 he has in 2008, which was substantially higher than league avg yet he only hit .250), he can kill your batting average.
SBs and power are the rule of the day here, but I think that folks are going to pay more for Justin in 2010 than he will return. And, for this reason, I will likely avoid him.
Anything below $15 is a bargain. I think the hype machine is going to put him at $20+. Too rich for my blood for the relative risk.
