Not to mention his German heritage would be a huge asset in predicting the sausage race outcomes in the Miller Park series.
Max Kepler has apparently found his power stroke. 6 HR is his last 10 games. Yeah, it's E-town...but he also has a 20/17 BB/SO this year.
.286/.412/.540/.951 on the season, .337/.444/.699/1.143 in July.
He could be kind of a big deal some day.

He played 3 games at first last year. This year he has been in the OF or DH, but mainly OF.
Did I read they are moving him to first some? That must mean Sano is staying at third next year, u would guess.
He was in E-town last year as well. I don't know if they changed coaches or anything like that, but I suspect his improvement this year also has something to do with him repeating the level and growing into his frame a little more.
You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

my 2015 dream
OF of CF Hicks, LF Arcia, RF Revere...
3B Plouffe....SS Gregorious......2B Rosario...........1B Parmelee/ Sano (AAA to start yr?)
DH Kennys Vargas
OF Benson or Bigley
Max Kepler and Travis Harrison in AA. Hopefully a lot of pitching in the upper minors and Niko Goodrum too.
Revere over Benson? Vargas going from Beloit to a DH? and Keper from Elizabethon to AA? Vargas is having a decent season, but he just started playing.

I rip on the scouting as much as anyone. Here in the states, their skill is debatable, but the international scouts are killing it. Honestly, since all the original scouting reports were all about him being a great athlete and not about being a ballplayer, I never expected much. What a steal.
Jorge Polanco from the IFA class of 2009 is very much a legitimate prospect as well.
