Minor league numbers often show what a player is capable of in a larger sample size. They rightfully should be consulted for someone who has limited major league experience.


Fair enough answer, if you cherry pick that part of my post.

The real question, which you don't answer, is at what moment in time do we have enough evidence to conclude that someone like McGehee might be better a better major league hitter than what you would divine strictly from minor league stats?

I believe next Tuesday is the day that moment occurs.

I had scramble for help last season and grabbed McGehee off the wire. I was pleasantly surprised with the numbers he posted. My only thoughts on him lean more toward why didn't I set him aside for a very late rounder to more than fill a hole at 2nd or 3rd. Thinking what we've seen so far may not be that far from what we could expect throughout the season.

He's 1-2 for a double so far this afternoon. I really think that double was the final straw that nudged him into non-anomaly territory . . .

I cut Chris Davis for McGehee in one league in which he was available. I still have my doubts, but he's been absolutely raking. the 2B, 3B eligibility on Yahoo is really nice.

Picked him up two weeks ago, when I realized Ian Desmond has hands like Roberto Duran. Happy I did, since Hill went down 2 days later.

I'm going to have to have some serious decisions to make when Hill and Fuentes get back.

3-4 today with a double, 2 runs scored, and an rbi. Not too shabby. ;-D

He'll be benched or cut within three weeks from your team.

I can't wait to cut this guy. I mean he's been killing my team.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.
