  1. I think Kevin Brown deserved more than just one ballot too. He may not be good enough to go in, but I think he deserved to be on more than one ballot.
  2. I don't really think more time in the minors is going to have a huge impact on the type of Major League players they will be.
  3. But in your analogy you had someone skip like 3 levels. Someone going from like 8th to 11th grade. That would be saying a guy going from single-A to the Majors. I'm proposing someone going from AAA to the Majors, which is the next logical step.
  4. Yes, that was last year. But if Avila signs someone like Harrison for a "stopgap" at SS so they can keep Castro down at AAA, is he really going to be an improvement? I just don't want to see any more Josh Harrison signings.
  5. I don't see how that analogy fits here. You don't keep a guy at junior varsity if he's better than the guy at varsity.
  6. Having a good team at the ML is the ultimate objective. I don't like sacrificing the present for unknown future. No, don't play them if they are not ready, but I also don't fully subscribe that bringing up someone too soon "ruins" their development. Play the best talent you have at the ML level.
  7. Just don't play someone worse than them at the ML level.
  8. It's really a balance of going with the standard that has been set up in the past versus your own personal standard. Sometimes you have to adjust your standard so that it fits the established market. If a player is better than say half of the players already in the Hall of Fame, then it's hard to not vote for him.
  9. Not only that, I don't think he'll care which cap he'll wear in the Hall of Fame.
  10. If I were a player, I wouldn't care who I won a championship with.
  11. Miggy has a World Series ring, 2 MVPs, a Triple Crown, multiple all-stars, and will get in the HOF. There is no "too bad for Miggy" here.
  12. If he can't play 5 different positions, the Tigers won't be interested.
  13. I can't see Avila going after Puig. He's too much of a douchebag.
