I personally think he could be an awesome 5th or 6th hitter, but I don't think he is going to have the discipline to hit 3 or 4. Great complimentary piece but never part of a great core.
I agree. I do think he'll develop more patience though. He has a history of doing so. You just don't turn away a guy with those tools who's already a pretty good player, despite being relatively early in his development.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
