I really, really like Cain. I think he has great potential both offensively and defensively. If we got say .300 15/80 and 20 SB's out of him? (which is reasonable) and a healthy season? Added with a star in Perez?
I'm just saying...we could be borderline elite.
If Hosmer and Mous develop into consistent
hitters at the ML level this season, we will improve to over 700 runs.
Expecting Cain to put up those numbers is complete and total homerism. The guy has all of 8 career HR's and 45 RBi's in 400+ AB's spread out over 3 seasons...
If he stays healthy, we're looking at about a .750 OPS guy that plays respectable defense.
