Those numbers would be okay if he was a CF but he's a first baseman!

he has shown power before.  in some of his minor league seasons he's had homer totals of 23 (w/25 2B), 18 (28 2B) and 17 (27 2B).

this year 11 of his 42 hits are extra base.  would i like to see more power?  yeah.  but he has gotten his average up to .278, improved his defense and i think could spell LaRoche at 1st from time-to-time (or DH better than stairs).
