I say it cause it is the only reason at all why your saying Francouer is a better prospect. Everytime you post you say his success in the majors, which is more like a flash in the pan success over only 150 AB's. Then you asked who got by AA, like for some reason Francouer being called up before Hermida has anything to do them as prospects. I've never said Hermida is a slam dunk, you quoted my post on what I thought of them, it's all right there. I said he is a more well rounded prospect that has less risk, but still has upside. Nothing dealing with prospects is a slam dunk, but looking everything over I'd say the percentages are in my favor on this one.
On their stats in AA, Hermida is plus across the board.
AVG. +.18, OBP +.135, SLG +.31, OPS +.166
Those are all percentages that don't rely on Hermida having extra 50+ AB's. So really the only arguement you have is trying to stick with his 150 Ab sample size in saying he is better than Hermida.
