Who is the most underrated player in the Pirates farm system?
Randy from Buried Treasure:
It's hard to think of a guy wholl turn 27 in 2007 as underrated. But Brad Eldred hit 40 homers in three stops in less than 500 ABs in 2005. Yeah, he strikes out too much and didnt hit for much average in the Show in 2005. But the Bucs were dead set against him making the Big Club out of Spring Training. That mightve made sense had they decided to go with Craig Wilson as the full time first baseman. Instead they had five different players make 10 or more starts at first and gave way too many ABs to retreads. Those first baseman combined to have the fewest RBI and runs scored of any group of first baseman in the NL. Combined they went .276/.356/.426 with 19 homers. I think Eldred couldve done that well (at least he wouldve hit more than 19 homers) and he wouldve had a full ML season behind him. Instead, he got injured and had a wasted season in 2006.
