Randar, I agree with your assessments to the T, except I think expecting Carlos Lee production out of Anderson might be a bit of a stretch. It could happen but I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

I tend to agree somewhat with Sickels on Anderson. I think he will become a regular MLB outfielder, but I question how much upside he really has. You are dead on that his nagging injuries are what caused his decline in AA. But there was still something that bothered me about him. I saw him swing and miss (badly) at a lot of breaking balls. I mean he was completely fooled and missed them by a foot or more. I know things like that can be corrected, but I just wonder how he will react as he gets to higher levels and they see his weaknesses. He is very talented and a really good guy. I hope he does well, which would mean I am wrong, but there is just something about him that is holding me back.
