    M2, I get your point about Davis. Thing is he was getting line drives all over the place. Maybin isn't. I just don't buy into the arguement that his speed is just so much better than everyone else in the minors that its going to continue to lead to the same success everywhere else he goes unless he changes his game.

    And if the guy wasn't making consistent hard contact, his ability to produce bases after the first (i.e. IsoP) wouldn't be nearly as high. You tout Drew Stubbs as a potential power hitter at an old age 22 despite a lower IsoP in Low A ball this season (.134), yet Maybin apparently can't hit the ball hard with a .163 IsoP at a young 20?

    Sorry, but that doesn't play.

    I don't tout Drew Stubbs as a power hitter. He has raw power... just like Maybin. Both have problems translating it into solid power though in game situations.

    Maybin has a fine IsoP, specifically for a centerfielder. My point is though that he has been extremely lucky to have a batting average over .230 to this point, in which case no one would case if he would be slugging .390 because he would still be hitting .230.
