re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
I am, but he's trying to denounce how good Middlebrooks has been by saying:
1. Trout is better (without any metrics to show me how, other than saying Trout has played more games, which, should support my claims considering Middlebrooks is on par or better in every offensive statistic except for stolen bases)
2. Saying Pods, Avilla, Salty, Nava and all these other jobbers have been more influential than Middlebrooks. And despite Middlebrooks hitting grand slams, beating out people for their jobs, and the entire Red Sox clubhouse saying that he's their best player, MrMister says nope, his contributions and statistics are inflated because he capitalizes on every at bat he has with RISP.
How do these hold water? The premise is totally off base here.
*Zero sex-drive crew*
*More interested in power tools than females crew*
*Buys power tools for single use then keeps them in garage unused for decades crew*
*Pretends to be a handyman at home, takes 8 years to insulate a wall crew*
*Doesn't like music, movies, or TV crew*
*After some self reflection, realizes that he really doesn't like anything crew*
