Not all evidence is created equal. Just because I guy is able to draw some walks and get some isolated plate discipline against inferior pitching doesn't mean that will translate against the big boys.
Of course not. I wasn't saying it was a likelihood. In fact, I said the evidence suggested it wasn't likely. But my post was in response to a claim that there was no evidence of it being a possibility. I think there is some evidence that suggests .350 is possible. Do you disagree?
The statement I was referring to would be more appropriate to a suggestion he'd hit 30 HR or have a .900 OPS. There's no evidence suggesting those are possible. There's some evidence suggesting a .350 OBP is possible.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
