Well in their defense, they usually aren't giving enough time to make the difficult adjustment. You don't give someone 100-200 AB's and expect it to automatically click.
As a Rockies fan, I've seen two moderately experienced players crash and burn in the majors despite tearing up the PCL (Stewart and EYJr) and one rookie crash and burn despite tearing up the PCL (Blackmon). Plus, there's Wily Mo, and Chris Davis, both of which have MLB experience and have sucked this year in midseason callups. Then there's Rizzo, Carp and a bunch of who cares.
And it's not like we expect them to keep their 1.000 OPS or whatever when they get called up, but come on, what about .750? Even .700? Between all those players I mentioned, none have been OPSing above .700 except Wily Mo and his hilarious .196/.196/.522 rates.
