Excited about George Springer? You're not alone

Baseball Prospectus has an article up this morning listing 10 players they're excited about this season. Number five on their list is the Astros own, George Springer. As our loyal readers know, we don't pull much from BP out of respect for their subscription integrity, but here's the money shot:

you can easily talk yourself into a six-win range of outcomes for Springer going forward. How he shows up this year could easily move the Astros' competitive window up or back by a year.

They compare him to Chris Young, who has swung between MVP level seasons and replacement level performance throughout his career.

We're excited, too, Baseball Prospectus. We're excited, too.
