DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Davidson, Avasil Garcia, and Yolmer Sanchez are all having nice little seasons -- are any of these guys for real? On another note, Melky Cabrera is only 32! He played on a team with Mussina, A-Rod, Jeter, Posada, Matsui, Sheffield, Bernie Williams, Kevin Brown, and Randy Johnson! Seems like forever ago...
(touchstoneQu from Minneapolis)
That Melky note is kinda nuts. We've written extensively about both Davidson and Avi over at BPSouthside.com. I suggest checking it out! But in sum, I think Davidson has proven to have legit major league power. He's never going to be a superstar given his shortcomings elsewhere, but I could easily see him having career longevity on par with the likes of Mark Reynolds or Chris Carter. Avi continues to be awesome but it's going to take a lot longer for him to wash away the years of mediocrity. Yolmer is probably hitting over his head right now, but could be a valuable backup middle infielder long term. (Collin Whitchurch)
