Eddie Encarnacion went deep with a three-run shot in the Caribbean World Series last night. That's his fourth three-run homer since the Winter League playoffs started by my count.
Someone with the Reds suggested that Encarnacion will benefit more from Dusty Baker's presence than any other player.
I'm not big on predictions. But I think Encarnacion will have a big year, and it's important to the Reds that he does to help balance the lineup. He's as good as the Reds have with runners in scoring position -- .947 OPS with runners in scoring position and a 1.197 OPS with the bases loaded.
