But just from reading your post it seems more like he's saying he's going to worry about playing his best and not about what Rube and Charlie are going to do.

Fair enough. I hope he makes it though because he has so much talent. Also something else he was talking about in the interview was that it was difficult to play in front 40k+ fans in Philly, another thing you don't want to hear from one of your top prospects. Either way, if he can be our Right Fielder this year, I would be more than happy. I think the important thing is that he doesn't platoon. He has to play every day. Maybe not a full 162, but at least like 140ish. If they platoon him with Young or Ruff or anyone else it is only going to exacerbate the situation. Either stick him in right all year or trade him.
