I'm not sure what we're expecting out of Holmberg anyway. Personally, I think he's going to be a rich-man's Matt Maloney and will be pleasantly surprised if the Reds get more than that from him.
That said, I'm not down on him after 3 AAA starts, either.
Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg
There is a giant delta between "I would bet against something" and "There is no possible way this could happen."
