That's simply not true about AAA. He batted .285 with a .422 on base percentage (though his power numbers were down).
In 72 at bats with the Orioles he hit .260 with a .357 OBP and a .521 slugging percentage.
If that's god awful, give me a bunch of god awful players!
Cust is a negative on average, but if he can post a .360 OBP and a .500 slugging percentage (which is what his minor league projects to), he could be a real steal, because I don't think he'll go before round 20 in any league.
