9 triples, over 30 steals, some pop in the bat. Bring him up in September.

I hope they do, but I am less than sure that they will. Hicks has had a very good year and I hope I see him playing at Target Field sometime in 2013.

Last night in Venezuela, Aaron Hicks went 3-5 with a double and his second stolen base. Has a hit in all 3 games so far, 5-14 (.357). He's leading off and playing CF.

Hey Seth does he project to be a leadoff type hitter in the majors?

He's definately a leadoff guy as someone who takes a ton of walks but also will contribute power.....new school type of player but we still run an old fashioned organization, but that will work as Hicks will also steal bases.

How can you say he is a 'new school type of player but we still run an old fashioned organization' when he was drafted as an athletic lump of clay and has been molded by our organization? Would you suggest that he has persevered in spite of the organization's teaching?
And in terms of organizational philosophies on lead-off men, I think Hicks' power and RBI ability are exactly what TK (Shane Mack, Knoblauch) and Gardy (Jacque Jones) prefer.
