No one thought he'd hit 40. In last year's draft he was o-ranked at about 140. I wanted to take him with my first overall pick at like 110 or something. I risked it, waited, and still got him. What I saw was a kid who was pretty good at everything and was improving at every level. But hey, I think he's 26 in a fly ball era. Going from 29/19 to 35/20 hr/sb wasn't a horrible hope. This guy is that rare guy who has shown linear growth. I was saying at the beginning of the year that you could take him end of the first round because 30/20 300, at 26 yrs old, in a loaded lineup is worth even more that. But hey he's at 27/19 now before the all star break and you're telling me you'd wanna draft arena do before him because of name recognition. That's just the silliest thing ever. That's like saying I'm not gonna draft trout cause bass tastes better. As in basement of the standings. Wake up and actually open up his player page. Check his career progression, and erase any doubts you have about a "Ramirez" being able to ball. He proved you wrong last year and you didn't select his numbers at face value in the 2nd round. That's on you, but don't make the same mistake twice.
