I don't know what everyone's getting excited about, it's not like he hit for the cycle.

He seems like the real deal. I think he'll be a solid major leaguer like Ventura. Great college players seem to pan out.

I think Beckham will hit better than Ventura. He was a career .267 hitter. I think Beckham will be a .300 hitter, more like a Michael Young.

Well I know besides yesterday his power hasn't really translated yet. I know it's definetly a small sample size but this kid led all of Division 1 baseball in home runs! I think he will have more power than Michael Young.

Are you comparing him to a Michael Young hitter with more power? If so, I would be excited to have him!

Sorry if I don't find humor in making an offensive and miserable joke like that. Do you listen in on junior high locker rooms for your shtick?

I don't really think he's anything like Michael Young. Either way, the Beckham comparisons have been terrible across the board. I've seen Aaron Hill, Michael Young, and many other white middle infielders compared to Gordon.

Ozzie Guillen compared him to Michael Young. His stance is similar. His build is similar. They're both line drive hitters with gap power.

They're nothing alike.

Then who is he comparable to?

Depends on your definition of Michael Young. The Michael Young of 2004-2006? No, too high of a batting average. Of the last few years? Not enough power.

I guess I'd compare Beckham to Khalil Greene (road version), but with a little more patience and a little less pop. I think he'd probably be an .800 OPS middle infielder if he progresses well.

Apology accepted.

Danks went 3-5 with a 2B, R, and an RBI, he also stole a base.

Armstrong also went 3-5 with 2 2Bs, and 3 runs scored.

They've only been signed with us for about 3 months and I'm already excited about Danks and Beckham. The two just seem to have tremendous upside. Maybe we can actually have a few more home grown players with the team in the next couple of years.

It seems like Armstrong is making a very strong case for being the backup to AJ next year. He's having a good fall league season.
