No, you can't "book it". You say he's far superior to other recent crossovers. How do you know this? Have you seen him play? Is he better than Puig or Cespedes? The only time we've seen him is in the World Baseball Classic. Like I said, there is room for optimism, but to claim he is one of the Sox top hitters before he's even seen a Major League pitch is going a little overboard. Let's give the guy a chance to prove himself first.
