OTOH, Dee Gordon-- a true 20 power guy-- was 35 points below AA Southern League average in slugging in 2010. He was 38 points below league average in the PCL the next season. In fact, aside from the cup of coffee he had in his first professional season, Gordon's been below average in every season he's played in terms of slugging. Gordon's speed is, at least according to you, very close to that of Hamilton, if not equal, so speed isn't the issue.
