As promised, here's news that's guaranteed to put the Wil Myers trade in some interesting perspective (or at least it did for me). I present to you... a comparison of seasons that led to the player being named minor league player of the year.
STAT PLAYER A MYERS
Average: .319 .314
HR: 27 37
** (Player A has higher power grade. Myers has more HR-friendly park)**
SLG: .587 .600
OBP: .375 .387
Ks: 135 140
K rate: 25.9% 26.8%
Who is player A? He looks an awful lot like Wil Myers, doesn't he?
Smith is Cassel. Cassel is Grbac. Grbac is Bono. Smith is a bum! We traded for a bum!
