I forgot to link this last week, but John Sickels has a very interesting “Crystal Ball” on everyone’s favorite third baseman (well, everyone except Jerry Narron), Edwin Encarnacion. It’s a prediction of what EdE’s career will turn out to be, and it’s always a fun feature over at Sickels’ blog.

Go check it out. Do you think Sickels is too pessimistic?

    if EdE’s career plays out like that (assuming his defense improves as it naturally should), i think reds fans would be pretty happy. 365 HRS, 1300 RBI, 3-4 time all-star. He wouldn’t be a HOFer, but that’s a solid career.

    But it might be a little pessimistic too. EdE’s 2nd and 3rd comps at baseball reference are jim thome and chipper jones.
