I wouldn't see why he is famous. I was saying Adam Dunn like but instead of 100BB's he would have half of those.

If he drives in 100 runs in 4 out of 5 years like Dunn, I'd be ok with that.

I've seen him several times so far this year and every time he's played the same way: swing at almost anything and strike out like mad. During the second game we attended my girlfriend, who is a baseball fan but not terribly knowledgeable, correctly predicted a 3-pitch swinging strikeout before he stepped into the box. If I remember correctly all the swings were high.

Right now I'm not worried about him in the long term. But since the Barons are my local team and I want to see them win as much as I want to see how the players are developing, I do get a bit frustrated in the short term.

If Dayan becomes anything close to Adam Dunn I would be ecstatic.

Adam Dunn would be a great development

I am worried he could be Russell Branyan, but really its way to early to tell

Or Jeff Liefer.

Strangely, isn't everyone who has been mentioned in this thread a left handed hitter? And RH hitters he could possibly compare to?

Typical. The Cuban Revolution has begun once again.
