It's beginning to start sounding like the Mickey Mantle chatter that got attached to Mike Trout coming up.
I don't even think he got 100 PA's in AAA. Struggled a little bit, then took off.

Some guys can handle the pressure that comes with that.

Beni didn't play AAA.  he was in Portland playing AA for a short stint prior to the call.

Christ, I know.

Where did I suggest otherwise?
I was comparing it to Trout spending such little time at AAA

I think he's going to be a much better version of Trot Nixon for the BoSox. Could see him hitting 25-30 HR's next year and stealing 30 bases, plus hitting around .320 or .330.

I can see a possible average over .300 but I'd say he's more of a 20-20 type guy than a 30-30 player.

If you’re making a list Eric Musselman should be near the top or at the top of it. - Me

Yeah, that would be much better than Trot Nixon.  Which begs the question, why Trot Nixon?  Why not Dewey Evans.

WOW! That would be one of the best rookie seasons in baseball history and would put him in the top 5 for league MVP. Completely rational...

My grandma would say "that boy is in some pretty tall cotton when you say that."
Or as my grandfather would say "he's in tall cotton and on the wipe"

Beni fucked up and misplayed a line drive to deep left with bases loaded against the Yankees who were down one in the 8th.

Yeah that was pretty rough.  And 0-3 at the plate.

He's a haircut away from settling down, and taking the league over.  He's reminding me of one of the Jonas brothers with that bushy mullett like coiffure going.

i agree.  his hair is just weighing him down too much.  makes his head too heavy, throws off his balance, slows his reaction time, and apparently fucks with his hand-eye coordination.

Exactly. He needs to keep his hair cut to the exact length he had when he was batting .500.
