Carlton Fisk and many other players have blossomed in the majors. Better coaching, and food and accommodations along with higher $$$$ cheques cashed can make statistics in minors mean jack chat in the big picture.
I agree with the projection barometer but it does not apply to every player brought up. If that was the case i would have determined Dickerson as nothing at all. When in truth he could be the 25 th man on any MLB team.
