Ignoring that much larger sample size in favor of one workout/spring game is beyond ignorant, IMO. That would be like me saying Yorman has a chance to be a 60 HR guy because John Fay reported he hit a HR over a light tower in BP a few days ago. I can't take him seriously after that.
Which is why watching a guy, especially against other pros, once and forming an opinion is a very poor idea. I have seen some really poor players do some very nice things in one game samples. I have seen Joey Votto look like an amateur as well.
