Brandon Wood has met his match this year. I think hes another one of those over hyped minor leaguers . Maybe another Dallas McPherson type. An homerun or nothing. K's way to much.

Exactly. He's a pretty sure September call-up.


I think Billy Butler gets the call before Gordon... :-?

surely you're kidding...he was 20 when the season started, and is holding his own with .293/17/53 in his first year of advanced competition. Easily the #2 prospect in the minors.

but he won't get a shot this year with O-Cab career numbers.

How is .293, 46 XbH, and a .955 OPS "meeting his match?" Yes, his K rate remains disconcerting, but it's always been.
