He is a 23 year old. Let's not make it more complex than that. 2 months from now you can use 24 as his age.
Seriously, I know what you are getting at, but just say he is "almost 24". It sounds a lot better.
Redszone: The only forum on the internet where the age of someone is argued about
For what it's worth, in the land of prospectville when comparing two prospects, age does matter. One guy could have just turned 23 and the other could be a month away from 24. In everyday world, we would call them both 23. Great.
But, when analyzing those two prospects at the same level, it's quite obvious that one is a year older than the other even though, AT THE CURRENT TIME, they are both 23. Personally, I use 23.1 and 23.11.
By the way, I wasn't arguing anything.
Just curious. Do people think Stubbs could at least match Corey Patterson's numbers if he was in the bigs now?
Give Drew some time and my answer will probably change.
I don't know if it was more Cueto rising than Bailey falling to be honest. As of this time last year, all we heard about Bailey was he constantly hit the mid to upper 90's with his fastball, had an above-average changeup, and a curveball that needed some twinking but would still be an above-average pitch eventually. However, none of those pitches came to fruition in the majors. Atleast not yet.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
Can anyone give an update on how Stubbs has looked thus far in his triple A play?
