Post Does spring count?

I saw Anderson play quite a bit in Spring Training and I thought he was the most impressive athlete we have majors or minors. He's not a similar player to Reed in that he is a RH hitter who's known primarily for his tools. He's very fast with a cannon, he has a beautiful swing (which is unusual for a RH hitter) and when he makes contact he lays out hard line drives from gap to gap. My view is he is going to be a very good defensive centerfielder with a lot of doubles and triples. He'll strike out some and is unlikely to walk as much as Reed. The major leaguer I'd compare him to is Torii Hunter, perhaps with fewer holes in his swing.
Witness to the agony ('76 Sox season tix) and the ecstasy (2005 World Champions!)
