EdE's work ethic

This is exactly what you want to be reading about your phenom rookie:

Rookie Reds 3B Edwin Encarnacion began taking early fielding practice every day after interim manager Jerry Narron told him that Wade Boggs used to do the same.

"I really believe when you get young guys to the big leagues, you better get it right from the beginning," Narron says. "If you don't, once guys get established, there's no going back."

Encarnacion seems like an extremely hard worker.  I'd love to see him and Felipe on the left side of the Reds infield for at least the next five years.
