    I would say sample size fail on you for only looking at this year as the size of the pool of his subpar offense.

    The sample size here is his last 750 at bats over almost 2 years, I'm not saying he can't be what he hints at being someday, but once again, here are his splits (AVG/OBP/SLG) from mid 2010, and he aint 21 years old, he is 27:

    IMO, he is only 5-6 weeks of sub-par play away from being a platoon/bench player, and maybe another sub par 50 ABs from not even being on the roster if he keeps this up. Shelton v2.0 if you will.

    I know a lot of people are 'hot' about his healthy return based on the prospect of higher 'ceiling', coupled with the fact he just looks like a baseball stud...and I confess to being wrapped up in that a little myself in the past, but he is definitely only a whisper away from having his cover blown.

    Nice swing Boesch! WTG! Keep the approach...those line outs will turn into doubles all day if you keep swinging it.

    So there is a chance we see Valverde again. Leyland blamed the lack of splitter yesterday on the cold temperatures. It's warmer today. I'll be counting the amount of splitters... I'm a skeptic on this.

    If you selectively quote statistics by ignoring the ones that refute your point and emphasizing the ones that reinforce your point, you can get statistics to say anything you want.

    Boesch is a slightly above average OF with potential to be more.
    A physicist, a chemist, and an economist were stranded on an island with no implements and a can of food. The physicist and the chemist each devised an ingenious mechanism for getting the can open; the economist merely said, "Assume we have a can opener"!

    Actually, Boesch didn't hit that double well at all. Soft fly ball way off the end of the bat. Joyce was shifted to the left, couldn't make the play. That's the kind of luck you need to break out of a slump.

    Heck, I love it! I'm a Tiger fan, have been since I was 10 in 1983, but that doesn't mean I can't recognize it when a hometown player is being overvalued.

    Nice job, dickweeds. I read this entire thread and no one ever mentioned we were ahead 3-1. I thought we were losing.

    I don't see how Boesch's streakiness is terribly relevant to anything. Most hitters are streaky. But Boesch has the talent and approach to make it work. It's not something worth the worry.
