Joe Kelly Thinks Allen Craig Will Be "Awesome"

Kelly (L); Craig (R)
Joe Kelly—fresh off predicting he'll win the 2015 AL Cy Young Award—is forecasting great things for his old Cardinal teammate Allen Craig. Kelly points to the years when Craig was the best hitter on the St. Louis squad, "We had Matt Hollidays, we had Lance Berkmans. But check out any playoff games, any stats, the guy was our best player, 100 percent." And, what about in 2015 (where Craig has no real position on the Red Sox)? Kelly is confident about his buddy's performance, "He’s not nicknamed ‘The Baseball-Whacker Guy’ for nothing. He’s going to go out there and hit some balls hard off that wall. It’s going to be fun watching him come out and he’s going to start whacking and people are going to be like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know he could do that.’ Well, he can do it." Joe, tell us what you really think.
