I know he's killing it right now, setting all sorts of random HR records and Reds fans are probably calling him the next Babe Ruth but my only question is.....how long before the majority of baseball fans forget about him? One season? Two?

I mean, does anyone really remember who the fastest to 14 home runs was? Fastest to 77 RBI?

Plus, there is something to be said about small sample sizes....does anyone remember when Eric Thames was on pace to hit 60 home runs?

Better question, does anyone still follow Eric Thames?

Not that I'm complaining, I love it when fans overreact to rookies. One of the things I love about prospecting. I guess I'm just being a smarta$s
