    I am just saying that it is one third of a month worth of data. It is essentially meaningless to look at the numbers. If there is something that suggests a change of skillset, that is worth looking into. But on pure numbers, it isn't even worth looking at.

    Putting weight in numbers from the AFL is like putting weight in what a guy hit between June 1st and June 15th. It is meaningless in the grand scheme of things. A two-week hot streak isn't indicative of anything.

    After putting up some good minor league numbers, Lutz fell off a bit when he got to AA later in the 2012 season. So it was encouraging to see him have a hot streak at the AFL. It was a positive step after a rough patch.

    I wouldn't exaggerate its importance. But if I were a Reds exec, I'd be pleased that Lutz did well there and I would be encouraged by that fact.

    I understand. I just wanted to give Doug his daily dose of a semantic debate.

    What about June 1st and June 30th? June 1st and August 1st? Where do you draw the line?

    We probably should add Jonathan Reynoso to the discussion for #11 and beyond due to his inclusion on the BA list.
