I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Strong Logic.

Any reasoning behind this blanket statement?



Just taking a shot, or are you keeping secret info from the rest of us so you can step on the rest of us in turn. :-?


Nice speed, decent average, not much pop since single A, he'll come back down to earth.



Nope, no secret info.

Also, not trying to "step" on anyone.

Honestly, I just felt that statement about McCutchen deserved a bit more explanation than "He'll come back down to earth". I wasn't even aware he was tearing it up (besides yesterday)

And I can now see that Guy actually posted a lot of information, and statistics to back his statement up in a re-post. That's all I was looking for, lol.

Strong logic? That's my opinion. I believe when someone asks for thoughts or ideas, they want opinions. Mine is of the notion that he will in fact come down to earth. I enjoy the sarcasm and would normally ignore it, but in this case, I'll humor you even though you, in fact, haven't contributed your own opinion.

His 2008 campaign was good, but not overly impressive. This season while better, hasn't been overly impressive either. In fact, before his last 10 games in which he "caught fire," he was hitting a rather pedestrian .278. With that being said, I just can't believe that he'll maintain a .280 batting average against major league pitchers let alone in the lead off spot in which he has been placed. He's got decent speed and a legitimate eye, other than that, I wouldn't expect a whole lot. He'll get on base at a decent clip and he might steal 15-20 bases the rest of the way but don't expect him to hit higher than .255-.260. That doesn't have a ton of value in most leagues.


Brah, I wasn't trying to be an A - Hole.

Sorry if it sounded like I was.

I only wanted an explanation for "he'll come back down to earth" I don't even own him in any leagues, so I wasn't aware he was "on fire" to begin with, lol.

And, you Definitely backed up that said statement with a lot of statistical analysis, and reasoning. Good stuff man, you definitely know a lot more about him than I do, like I said ... I just wanted a reason or explanation for your earlier post. No hate, No E - Thuggin. ;-D

When he stole his first bag, he was moving so fast, he slid 3 feet past it.

He should be exciting, if nothing else. ;-D

Indeed. On one of those triples last night, he seemed to be "jogging" out of the box, and then when it got past the OFer, he turned it up so much that he almost caught Hinske and ended up on 3rd with a stand up triple. :-b
