If .255 is our best numbers were in trouble.

stanton is a beast

juan vasquez

anypower hitter going up in levels will drop points combined and as long as he can produce runs with on base guys like coghlan and morrison and who ever cheaploria keeps the only trouble we have would be is the owner

Kman, he's only 19 and he hit 28 Home Runs...that's "in trouble"?

gizmo, .255 with 28 homeruns is Dan Uggla. His point is that .255 in the minors doesn't usually win player of the year awards.

Didn't we dump Morrison after he hit 40 homeruns last year?

We don't need another Dan Uggla, we need another Coghlan.

Kman

Yea that was my point he got player of the year hitting .255 the homeruns are good but the avg did not merit that award
