2009 Goose Joak Original - Travis Snider

Travis Snider
Goose Joak Tribute to 2009 Goose Joak Originals

One of my irrational breakout candidates for 2011.  

Why should we believe in Travis?  He has never hit lower than .275 in the minors, and has slugged over .500 three times, over .600 once.

Given a chance to play everyday, and preferably not rotting in the bottom of the lineup, I wonder what Travis could do.  .260/.340/.490 is within reach if things break right, and I think the ceiling is there to achieve higher. I wouldn't go out of my way to draft him this year, but I think he's one of those guys that creeps up onto people's radars for 2012.
