Heilman had a career losing record in the minors with an ERA over 3.50 and a WHIP over 1.30. Nady hit .330 with a 1.020 OPS the last time he was in the minors.
If one year of relieving makes you better then Jeremy Fikac is a Hall-of-Famer.
"Tears the cover off the ball" is one heck of an overstatement. Nady's a career .263 hitter in the majors who's never hit more than 13 home runs in a season. That .330 mark was last year in AAA in 74 games. Hardly a "track record". Might I add in 34 games in the majors that same year he struggled mightily, hitting .247 with an OPS of .717.
If you want to cherry-pick stats that aren't from the majors
And you're talking about cherry-picking stats? Those '34 games' in the majors were 77 at bats.
I believe my statement was "when given a job". Nady has never had a long stint of consecutive playing time in the majors. And the last time Nady had regular time he hit .330 with an OPS of 1.020.
