Those are OPS' of .815/.831/.871. Those are good, but not even close to great. He could also spend some more time learning defense at that level where players are hitting it harder and farther. He can learn to run bases better. Learn to steal against a better quality pitcher. There are a ton of things he can spend another month working on at the High-A level.
Your numbers had him at a .945 OPS vs what he finished at, which was .871. There's a huge difference there. (He finished 5th in OPS in the MWL in 2006)
Those numbers that Doug posted were Bruce's numbers before the last month of the season, in which he played through a shoulder injury. I think he hit under .200 over the last month last season.
