Hey I'll take you for the Patterson hits under .250 bet.
Jeez GTWMA, you could have a bunch of funny AVs by the end of the year.
If I win you have to include this in your sig, "Corey Patterson is sabermetric gold"
Just FYI, Cory finished ST batting .255 I'll give you a chance to back out now. And given that Cory's now going to lose ABs to both Markakis and Matos, we need a minimum plate appearances. How about 250?
Ok, so if CP doesn't get 250 PA, the bet is off.
Competition for PT could as easily work to light a fire under Patterson as it could bring him down. My gut tells me the recent news will likely improve Patterson's average, so I'm sticking with the bet. (Don't fail me now PECOTA)
lol, you didn't need to make your own thread about it!
I was going to respond in the Granderson forum. And remember, I wasn't the one so staunchly supporting Patterson, I was agruing Grandersons speed.
As the post above yours shows, the doors have opened for Granderson and appear to be closing for Patterson and warrick95's bet. (I think you meant the title of the thread to include his name)

Compare that to my more mellow words, supporting Granderson:
If you take playing time out of the picture it seems that Granderson is more capable in the runs and average department, Patterson in steals, with a tie in Power. Granderson is a reasonable bet to provide more fantasy value, but 30+ steals from Corey could change that.
