I think that's exactly it. The manager quite rightfully wants to put the brakes on some of the high expectations being put on this kid. As fan base, we are starving for anything positive to take away from this awful season. We'd all like to see Garcia show up and rake, but it's probably a little unfair to expect that from him at this stage of his development. Robin will do what he can to keep expectations in line with what is fair and reasonable.

I want Garcia hitting 7th to work on his approach and pitch recognition without a lot of pressure. I want Ramirez hitting 3rd to start turning on more balls and raise his power numbers to try to raise his trade value.

If I was to compare Garcia to a recent Sox player probably be Dye with a little smaller hit tool, but bigger power tool.

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).

Joking aside, before the 1998 roidsplosion Sosa was a 25-40 homer guy with contact issues but still a really good player (especially defensively). He was that way from basically 1993 - 1997. When I see Garcia, that's the player I'm looking at. Which would be pretty awesome.
