The Tyler Colvin Thread
Salaries, ages, and potential upside notwithstanding, Tyler Colvin has earned a starting spot in right field against right-handed pitching this season.
This will be the third year in a row that Kosuke Fukudome will be forced to acknowledge his monthly splits if he ever decides to read anything written about his performance so far this season. Allow me to provide those numbers (avg/obp/slg, obvs):
June (albeit thru 27 ABs): .185/.241/.259
And Colvin's performance:
Of course, I know about .0001% as much as Lou Piniella when it comes to baseball. But Kosuke sure seems to be a known quantity, doesn't he? At least Tyler might have more power.
I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to explain how much better your ideas for the team are than everyone else's.
