2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Watching Matt Pagnozzi get hot at the end of the season causes me much angst for I now know that TLR and DUnc will NEVER let Bryan Anderson catch in StL. But, it did make me wonder if there are players who actually have a skillset that performs better at the MLB level than at AAA? And how do we identify these players? (Not that Matt Pagnozzi would be in such a group.)
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
I don't consider it likely. Quite simply, the level of competition is lower at Triple-A, in all respects, so why would we expect anyone to play better at a higher level (other than as a result of maturation/experience/normal development, I mean). I suppose it's theoretically possible that someone might be so energized or motivated by a call-up that he'd be able to exceed his Triple-A performance in the majors, but I'd think it would be impossible to identify a player like that beforehand, and always safer to assume that he'd merely fluked into better production post-promotion. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Honestly, Matt Pagnozzi just sounds like the kind of player I would want in my lineup. I have no other reason for slotting him in outside of him sounding like a Cardinal.
(Tony La Russa from St. Louis)
You know, sometimes I'm not sure that much more thought than that goes into TLR's lineups. And with so many pitching changes to plan, who can blame him? (Ben Lindbergh)
