Would be extremely troublesome to do it two years in a row.

VERY Barmesesque, even if I sold him 4 OPS points short.

Every now and then he goes 5-5 and jumps his average up enough that he can spend another month going 1-4 and 1-5 with no walks or power. He can have all the tools in the world, but so far he hasn’t shown anything at all. Way too early to give up or rule out something clicking and his game really taking off, but he’s fallen very far down on my prospect list.
I’m also surprised Hanson wasn’t on your trending down list. You mentioned him in the Polanco blurb, but he’s not just getting “outhit” by a guy who’s mashing the ball, Hanson himself is in a slump. He’s got something like a .528 OPS (just an estimate, but it’s around that Barmesesque territory) in his last 10 games. Which is of course only 10 games, but that’s enough to say he’s “trending down.”

Add to that the fact that Locke didn’t exactly set the world on fire in his brief call-up last season and it might be best to temper enthusiam for a while. Realize it’s small sample sizes, but if it works against Marte, shouldn’t it also work against pitchers?
