    Hahahahahahahaha!11!!1

    I have no fear that he is a an airhead.

    I just see that he does not make all the plays all that well. Maybe some of it is that he does not know what to do. Maybe it's just he does not have good instincts. Maybe some of it is that he has a lousy arm.

    In any case, I do see a very talented athlete that I believe should get better at these things with more practice and game experience.

    Overall, it's just fun to piss off all the Sox sycophants who see him as an outstanding player already.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Manny was an airhead, and I loved having Manny on the Red Sox. If this kid can be an All Star hitter, I will tolerate a lot of airheadedness.
