I think that's a relatively safe projection, although he may not hit for that power until 2007/2008. He hits a lot of hard doubles, and those often turn into HR's as guys mature and fill out as they reach their mid to upper 20's. Great arm in CF and he's accurate due to great footwork.
Although I know that nothing is certain, it is good to know that the Sox might have a legitimate, home-grown CF with production comparable to Lee by 2007/08.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
