Add in his speed (Which is a legit 80 in a prospect scale), and it's hard not to fall into the hype for him.

He's got a legitimate chance to be a 5 tool CFer in his prime. He could, when all is said and done, be one of the most valuable players in baseball.
I still don't understand that if he's so good, why did he go only 25th in the draft?

Oh, and Ducks and Angels fans aren't really the same. Like a lot of Angels fan don't like the Ducks, and a lot of Ducks fans don't like the Angels. The sports and mindsets of the fans' differ... there are some fans of both, but not a lot.
