The Gabe Gross, Andruw Jones thing for example doesn't even compare. Gross is almost penciled in as a career backup OF while Andruw Jones has been a promising hitter for so long now, going into a season where he was 27 or 28. We even heard reports that the batting stance change was helping him. Rule number 1 to ST; know how good a guy is before you look deeper into their ST performance.
I dont think its accurate to say that you should just ignore everything that has happened. For example, Johnny Gomes has been on a tear since Mexican winter ball in 04 and still on one in the spring. And hes 25 so its not like a 31 year old backup OF has 8 hrs already. But Andy Tracy of the Orioles has also been on a tear but we all know that his role isn't as big as Gomes. He knows he has no future playing an important role w a big league club.
