    Wow! You must be expecting him to have a monster year!

    I guess we'll find out if he is. He's officially made the team. We must have our sites site on the K record.

    Bill James identified three kinds of position players who tend to flame out suddenly in their early 30's: Ones whose value is concentrated in just one or two skills, ones who had an "old man" skill set profile in their latter or even mid 20's (power and walks, no speed, limited range).

    Is there anything on that list that doesn't describe Kubel?
