I hope he doesn't ruin his career by forcing himself to hit for power. I think he strikes out a lot because he's a naturally aggressive hitter, but it may also be because he's trying to hit for power. Personally I want to see him forget about hitting for power and mold himself into a leadoff hitter. His best tools are his defense and speed and Sox can find power somewhere else. If he can put up numbers somewhat close to Ellsbury, Sox should be happy to have found a good-fielding centerfield lead-off man. Sometimes I think powerhitting is way too over-emphasized for some prospects.
