How awesome would it be if Anderson could be another Cabrera...not in the "age" sense...in the "call up with hardly any minor experience and dominate..."

I have yet to see him play yet this year in person, and probably won't get a chance save a late-season call-up. IMO, he is similar to Reed with more power and less OBP potential. He has very strong hands and forearms, but he could definiitely use the rest of this season in AA and most of next year in AAA and go from there.

I know we don't really have a CF'er, but we should not rush him. Great kid.

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.

Well, OBVIOUSLY the LH/RH difference is there. However, I meant more in their smooth swings. Anderson hits for more power, strikes out more, and walks less, however, I still think he can be a good hitter for average as well. The Reed comparisons were more about the path they've taken through similar stages/time in the system, and I should have clarified that better.
