    That's a BIG kid. Still looks pretty fluid in the field for that size, although his footwork at the plate seems off a bit (the one swing where his backfoot crosses home plate on recoil especially). I'm certainly not a scouting expert, but I have to think with some good coaching, this kid has a future.

    Cool, I really like our efforts in Latin America.
