Yea, I just finished reading the article too.
I appreciate Chip posting it, but the BP people just had to feel obligated to throw a wet blanket on the fun last night.
We can't have people on Twitter getting excited about Billy's potential.
Baseball Prospectus has to be sure to go on record now as saying that Billy's OBP might not be high enough in the majors to be a superstar (Which everyone who has followed Billy at AAA this year already knows).
I guess BP is going to be able to pat themselves on the back if Billy's doesn't become a perennial allstar
Nothing is a sure thing in life, but I think by 2015, Billy will be a nice ML player.
Maybe not the star we are hoping for, but a useful player.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
