As I type this post, I am watching the NCAA Super regional with AZ St and Fresno and getting a couple of looks at the Cards #1 draft choice. A few things: first, this kid is an intimidating presence in the box, man. He has these tree trunks sewn to his pelvis. These must be his generator of awesome power. Second, I think this guy might be able to play a league average third base. Some scouting reports I've read mention that he can run fairly well given his badonkadonk (several steals here and there) and has sure feet. Third, this guy is NOT fat. I caught this interview on 1380am with Wallace wherein he said that he was down to 9.5% body fat--he's packing some serious muscles in them saddle bags. My hunch on his defensive capacity was somewhat seconded by a great play he made at 3rd in the 8th inning; Wallace ventures into foul territory to stop sure run-scoring, ground-ball double and throws across his body to get the speedy college player at first, giving AZst a chance in the top of the 8th.
I dunno. Maybe the scouts are right and he won't stick, but he'll give 3rd base a worthy try. He also said on the radio interview that he can play LF. Or maybe the Cards will be forced to look elsewhere when Albert's contract expires in the next decade. Wallace will be that guy.
Finlally, the 1380 interview also revealed that Wallace liked how the wooden bats handled in the Cape league. I'm getting excited.
