    OK, and his BA was .264 and OBP was .309. He had 11 walks in nearly 200 plate appearances. The walks were likely incidental since major league pitchers can simply knock the toothpick out of his hand.

    Add to that slap hitting slugging under .300, and you have a guy with nice value to watch run the bases in the minor leagues. The Louisville Bats fans might love the guy. But I sure don't want to see his crooked hat at the major league level getting anywhere near the plate appearances that he got for a bad, bad Cubs team. He just isn't a legit major league player.
