He was in College (Miami FL, Golden Spikes 1998) until he was 22. Tha't only two years in the minors. Doesn't sound too bad to me.

Maybe. But he was still playing with 18 year old kids when he was 22. That's bound to pad your stats some.

I'm not ruling him out - it just gives me pause. He's a free swinger that came up late. I won't be drafting him too early.

Umm, you might want to look up your stats before making broad statements like that. Konerko had 4 great years from 1999-2002. Cameron had solid (albeit ugly in the AVG) years from 1999-2002 also. Shawn Green has only had one more good year than either of those guys.

Off topic, but Green has had way more then 1 better year. In the last 5 years, Konerkos best rc/27 was 6.50, good, but not GREAT. Camerons best was 6.05. Green has had 3 years of 8.06/8.07 in La/7.51 in LA.
