In response to softlaw2's comment:
You have a history of judging players definitively on tiny sample sizes, at times, as little as one plate appearance, and now you criticize me for using a 600+ PA sample size of Reddick's career 2nd half numbers. And, you wonder why I call you a silly clown.
No, it wasn't the last month that mattered. It was the entire 2011 season that mattered, which included the greatest team losing games collapse that had noting to do with posting "last half individual player snipets".
You are blind and don't even know where the goal posts are, much less talking about them moving. "Last half" is trying to tell lies with statistics.
And I'm so glad Santana is with the Mets, because if it were up to you he would be the pitching version of Carl Crawford.
I never said that is what his future projects to, but used it as a sample size that may end up being what the rest of his career could amount to as a low end projection. I happen to think Reddick will improve on his overall career numbers, but you seem to enjoy projecting positions onto other posters that don't exist or never existed.
Josh just turned 26 and has room to improve, but it is also possible that teams have figured out a way to get him out. His career line is not spectacular at all, but I'll leave it to you to tell us all about his "median average" and other silliness.
In 986 career PAs, Josh has an OBP of .300 and a BA of .244. His BA went down last year (.242). His 162 game line is: .244 23 66.
I can imagine if "Jake" put up those numbers...
