Jose Lopez

Any guess who leads AL second basemen in HRs and RBIs?

After two seasons of 200 AB nothings, he cemented his status as a failed prospect coming into the 2006 season.

I liked him despite the consensus conclusions to be drawn from 400 professional ABs (a case of an "n" of 400 being insignicant.)  

Why?  He is 22-years-old and no one should ever give-up on a player who makes the majors at 20.

You may have a couple years of suffering as he acclimates to the majors, but eventually, he will.  

And you want your team there to benefit.
