This.Why do people keep discounting the fact he was out of the game for 15 or 16 months? And chances are he never faced pitching that was as good as he's facing now on a consistent basis. It's also very possible he finished his time playing baseball in Cuba injured - his final two stints there he played only 40 games.
If he's still bad middle of next year, then I think we can throw the "bust" tag on him, but shoot it's gonna take time for him to make all these adjustments. And again ... thank goodness this team actually has a plan and is stockpiling talent rather than just saying "we got these two, we're good." The team being successful will not hinge solely on VVM.
I never called him a bust or said I think he will be one. I was just saying AFL stats don't mean much.But it's not nothing either. If he was sucking in the AFL people would be reminding us that he's a bust. You should know the drill by now. Stop moving the goal posts.
