To say someone was "exposed" based on a one game sample size exposes you as a fraud
Only a mental midget would be unable to comprehend that Brentz is exposed as a fraud when he's being puffed up by Southpaux as a long term career MLB starter in the OF. When his career ends up as nothing more than most seasons as a platoon/bench type of MLB career, you'll be claiming the standard lie of claiming I said he'd never make it on a MLB roster.
I have never said Brentz is a sure bet to be anything more than a platoon OF'er. You way too often assume that because someone is critical of your methodolgy, they disagree with everything you say or hold the exact opposite view as yours.
While I do hold out hope that Brentz may become a fine ML player, I do not make rash assumptions based on one bad game "on the big stage".
That was what I was adressing. Please try to keep up.
I place Brentz slightly above where I placed Kalish 2 years ago. That is, a lot of hope, but nothing to get overly excited about, whereas you were annointing Kalish the next great Sox CF'er based on a marginally decent first few weeks in ML baseball. I don't here you mentioneing Kalish much anymore. I don't wonder why.
Anyone who was so stupid as to offer Tim Wastefield 2 million, then 1 million, then three quarters of a million for 2012, where there was no market for the fat bum, is exposed as the fraud who has the audacity to claim "realistic" post total puffing drivel.
Anyone who keeps feeling the need to bring up our 6th starter and back-up catcher from 2011 over and over again is divetrting from his own miscalculations, like Bard as starter, Nick Johnson over Beltre, Bern Sheets, Lowell to platoon with Papi, Papi should be sent to the minors on a fake rehab assignment, etc...
