Kila Ka'aihue

With the possibility of sounding like Seinfeld, what is the deal with Kila Ka'aihue?  His minor league numbers are insanely good (or have been for the last few years), yet he has never really been given a chance in the majors.  I understand that Butler is having a good season at 1B and Guillen is having a great season at DH, but Kila deserves to be put into the lineup SOMEWHERE!  Doesn't he?  Even in his SSS 2008 (21 ABs), he hit a HR and got more BBs than Ks.  That's VERY hard to do as a rookie in your first 21 ABs!  The guy is an on-base machine, and I think he deserves a chance at some legitimate PT.

 

Do you agree, or am I way off here?  Based on his numbers (and numbers alone), can he make a Nelson Cruz-like offensive impact in the majors if given PT?  What do you predict for his slash numbers both in his "peak years" and "average years"?
