Only if you mistakenly believe that they're playing an entirely different sport in the minors.

It's baseball. The players in the minors just aren't quite as good. If you can't hit in the minors, you can't hit in the majors. If you're a much better hitter than a comparable player in the minors, that carries over to the majors.

Freddy Bynum is a better hitter than Luis Hernandez whether they're playing in Baltimore, Frederick, Norfolk, Winnipeg, Fukuoka, Perth, or Taiwan.

Maybe so, but I maintain the significance is minimal.

You like European soccer, so what if they were playing in Istanbul for the Galatasaray, do you think Bynum would still be a better hitter than Hernandez.

:mwahaha:

Power means nothing?

Speed means nothing?

Now, I am starting too laugh, because niether LH nor Bynum are anywhere close to being a "power" hitter. :laughlol:To me if a guy can hit three-five dingers a year versus a guy who hits one or none, the advantage is simply immaterial. Niether are power hitters period. As far as speed, yes Bynum has it much moreso than LH. Ergo he has more value as a pinch runner. However, if he doesn't get on base any more than LH which is ML stats seem to indicate, this advantage is pretty much nullified.:eektf:

When you define power as only homers, you are making your first HUGE mistake.

Well the stats say other wise. Bynum has 100+ points of SLG on Hernandez. That means more doubles, triples, and homeruns which will score more runs.

At the end of the day, Bynum, is probably worth around 2 more wins than LH i would guess.

I seriously doubt it. LH has already personally won one game with his bat and significantly helped win another with his defense at second base of all places. How many has Bynum won?

You could argue the game in which he made 8 assists. He has scored several runs in his few days back.

This season, Bynum has 6 runs scored compared to Hernandez's 9, in only (22/76) less than 1/3 of the at-bats.

No, maybe you are. I don't consider a double a sign of power. Guys like BR and even Pete Rose exelled at hitting doubles but neither will ever be considered a "power' hitter. To me, a power hitter is a home run machine.

No he didn't...This is probably the dumbest thing you have ever said and that is saying something.

To say ANY PLAYER HAS EVER WON A GAME BY HIMSELF IN A TEAM SPORT IS JUST STUPID AND WRONG!

Tiger Woods wins by himself. Carl Lewis won by himself.

So his walkoff game winning hit didn't win the game? If not, why are they not still playing the game?:laughlol:

Sounds like you have the "Little League" philosphy so still ingrained in your brain you are losing sight of common sense. :eek: I guarantee you if you ever played the game competively, even adult softball and you drove in the game winning run , you wouldn't be walking around saying the team drove in that run! Now that would be the funniest thing I have ever heard, bar NONE!:laughlol::clap3::mwahaha::rofl:
