There are a lot of negatives in that article. "Slider-speed bat." "Base clogger." "Dead body type." Comparables include Viciedo and "Angels prospect C.J. Cron, a former first-round pick who hit .274 with 14 home runs in the Double-A Texas League this season."

But also "monstrous power"...and we know the Sox are suckers for monstrous power.

I hope he wins the Triple Crown, and we need a first baseman, but he's no sure thing.
