Whoever posted the Kila stats on that last thread to make this same point, needs to be slapped too.
And Jay Bruce - player A - was 20 when he had that season. He did it across three levels rather than two, but they spent similar time in AAA.
My point: There's a strong indicator that Myers is going to be a very good MLB RF. Probably about the same as Jay Bruce.
Puts a little different - and lower - perspective on Wil Myers' value than I had three days ago, when he was still on my team and I didn't want to analyze these flaws that deeply.
Not trying to say Myers is going to be a bust at all. Just that he's more likely to be Jay Bruce than Ryan Braun (which is what we all were hoping for).
