No JP Love?

So JP Arencibia gets called up and has a ho-hum debut for the Jays, going 4-5 with 2 HRs and 3 RBI, basically continuing the tear he has been on all season at AAA Las Vegas, and nobody has anything to say about it?  I've been high on the guy for a while now (in fact, just traded Jon Broxton for him and Eric Hosmer) and, while I didn't expect quite such a spectacular debut, I definitely wasn't completely shocked.  You have to think he's pretty much locked up the starting job in Toronto. Of course, it's the smallest sample size possible, but I think he can keep up a well above average pace. 

 

My question is, what do you see coming from him as pitchers start to figure out his weaknesses?  He certainly can improve his BB/K ratio (which he already drastically did from '09 to '10 at Las Vegas), but surely he's major league ready.  Do yuo see him as one of the top young catchers in the game going forward?  Or was this just an anomalous first game and he'll be an all-or-nothing power hitter with a weak average?
