Aaron Hill rules!

In the first inning against the Angels, Aaron Hill has already blasted one out of the yard for a 2 run shot, his 7th long fly of the year! How much did the team miss him last year? J.P. Ricciardi has to be commended for selecting this guy with the 13th pick in the 2003 draft. All the players that went ahead of him aren't as good, with the possible exceptions being John Danks and Nick Markakis. Hill is showing no signs of letting up this year either. What a baller.

It seems almost crazy to suggest he is in the early (and it's definitely REALLY early) discussion for the MVP, mostly because he's on my favourite team. So is it just me hyping up a guy who wouldn't be as big if he were on a small market team? Or come to think of it, is he under hyped because he's on a team that gets no respect like Toronto? If Dustin Pedroia could win MVP, why not Hill?

Or maybe I'm just crazy.
