I saw Cain on the 11th when he was with the Timber Rattlers, I don't think the injury set him back at all. I was amazed at how fast he could run.

Please do realize he is coming back off a torn knee (late April I believe). He tore it up in ST and was successful last year. He has speed and some power. I believe he can be ready.


Your first post in the thread talks crap about bring up the young guys but now you want to bring up a guy who has proved less than any of the people originally mentioned?


I never said bring him up now. I am saying he'll be playing for us next year. I think he'll strengthen his knee, they'll ask him to play winter ball, he'll come to ST on fire, and he'll be one of the leading candidates for Center next year. Just my thoughts, not the bible on it.

And LG, realize he only got a couple weeks of ball in because he hurt his hammy and missed the first couple weeks of the regular season, then came back, tore his PCL I believe and has only been back playing ball for a week. So his numbers aren't very good because it is such a small sample size. I've seen the kid play and I like what he brings to the table. He is a speed guy that has some pop in his bat. He is very fast and can hit leadoff. Just wait til 2010, and see what we get. But I am not taking anything from his current numbers which represent about 3 weeks of play.

He has hit 26 HR in his minor league career. Escobar will has 18. He just is not what you are saying he is. If Escobar and Cain are on the opening day roster, Escobar is batting leadoff.

Ok I guess we'll see. I think you just have a man crush on this guy and want him to succeed.

If Escobar is in the starting lineup. I think Escobar will have a harder time cracking the starting lineup than Cain will, unless the following happens.

1) Hart moves to Center, we don't pick up an outfielder in the off-season, and Weeks/Gamel make the transition to the outfield. Honestly, I can see Gamel more of a corner outfielder than Weeks. Gamel has a strong arm.

2) We make a trade and JJ is gone, or JJ moves to third. However, I think that Gamel or McGehee will be a long term plan there.

Cain is what I am saying he is. Whether or not he will be ready for the 2010 season is another thing. And LG, I don't have a man crush on the guy. I just think he'll be good. Of course I said the same thing about Braun and that hasn't panned out well either. Cain has the tools to be a good player. I just don't know how much the knee injury sets him back. Had he had an entire year in AA or AAA, you'd be seeing him with the September callup and on the depth chart on the 25 man roster next year when Cam, Catalanatto and Gerut are gone.

It's ok to have man crushes longball, we all have them its part of being a fan. Just don't deny it when it's so obvious []. I hope the guy succeeds, I just don't see him being apart of the Brewers immdient future unless he drastically improves in the fall and winter.
