    There's like a 90% chance Kevin Smith is a 75 wRC+ bat playing third base and K'ing 30% of the time. Plan the parade.

    I never said he was good. I just don't think it matters what Franco or Kelenic are doing. Do you really think we should baby a 25 year old because some 20 year old top prospects are struggling?

    Do you really think we should call up a 25 year old with strikeout problems to try and shore up third base?

    Franco K'd 11% of the time in AAA and now is striking out nearly 25% of the time. That's why its relevant how these super prospects are transitioning to the MLB.

    No, pathetic is the guy who refuses to pay up after losing a bet. You can call me whatever you want but at least I'll never be a welcher.

    There really isn't anything to lose by giving him a chance at some point. At worst you end up losing somebody off the fringes of the 40 man roster once Smith gets his initial chance. If he struggles he has all of his options remaining and you simply option him back down.

    FWIW, MLB Equivalency Calculator has him as a 129 wRC+ (.253/.324/.492)

    Better hope you never hit a dry spell, no way you could afford a hooker.

    Just so we're all aware, do not make a bet with L54, he'll never have any intention of paying.

    He owed money for a bet for several months, couldn't afford to pay up. Was pitied and offered the chance to pay in installments but still never forked over a cent. Months later, he got banned for a few days for making a disrespect comment to another poster regarding that person's struggles with their health. The next time he's asked about the bet, now says he's not going to pay because he was banned and has no respect for the forum.
    Yet he continues to not only post here but try to pass himself as some sort of alpha, when in reality he's a pathetic excuse for a man who couldn't scrape together a few hundred bucks over the course of several months.

    This is embarrassing. Being a welcher and shaming someone over sex are both just bad looks for you.
