For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
It's between Posey and McCutchen now IMO.

But neither was I.
I'm calling for the collective valuation of the player. I think he should be valued based on his total sample. Those calling him an MVP over small samples are wrong to do so. But it's definitely more annoying to read the negative side after 9 at bats, not to mention, the strutting that the poster was somehow "right" after another 8 string of at-bats. I simply don't care to evaluate multiple stints of various streaks.
The net results puts him into a class just below the elite. It's hard for me to go out of my way to find issues like that. It's not hard for me to find ways to find issue with those that do.
