    Do you really believe that Cubs third baseman, Mike Olt, is a better player than Kris Bryant right now?


    Byron Buxton is the Twins' top prospect. He was Baseball America's #1 prospect 2 years in a row. He does not have an MLB at bat. He is not one of their best players.
    Buxton is not Kris Bryant. For one Buxton has only reached AA ball. He has never hit 43 HR's at AAA like Bryant.

    BTW, Bryant is batting .125 in AAA Iowa. Should be be called up?
    That is in just two games that Bryant had played (1 for 8). Now Bryant has played in 3 games and is now hitting .333/.357/.667 . That is what you get with such small sample sizes. The Cubs should call him up right now!

              Last year Miguel Cabrera had his poorest season in years. There was some talk that he is entering the decline phase of his career. Others countered that Cabrera had some injuries that really hampered him 2014. Well, far in 2015 is hitting like crazy, .517/.576/.824, 292 OPS+.

                he's a great player, he is far from done. Pujols just hit HR 522, 6 years ago i thought he would pass Babe and maybe (steroid) Bonds. if he only stayed in St. Louis he may have 560 by now, 600 by the end of '15 season. it was not to be ?

                  Albert Pujols was amazing in his 20's, right there with Lou Gehrig as the greatest first baseman of all time. His severe decline starting at age 31 is just puzzling to me. For years there were rumors that he was perhaps 3-5 years older than he claimed to be. I never paid much attention to those rumors but now I am not so sure. All time greats don't usually decline that fast at such a young age.

                    I don't know why, but I always found as funny the following ESPN commercial with the spelling bee kid and Scott Van Pelt trying to spell P-U-J-O-I-S.

                        St. Louis was right to not mortgage the future by not signing him. Even so, they did offer him 200 million but that wasn't enough for Albert.

                          He felt "disrespected" right? I wish an employer would "disrespect' me by offering me a $200 million contract.

                            I'd be happy being disrespected like that even half as much.

                              I heard the rumors too. how can we "know" when a person is not born here and documented ? whatever the case may be, Pujols never tested positive for "steroids" and commands that salary by the NUMBERS. He left primarily because his wife has family in California, rumor. Regardless, he left a city that gave him the opportunity, he will not enter the hall as a Cardinal, unless he "decides", and that's a shame.

                              • Pujols' decline is startling. Here are his seasonal averages. A 51 point drop in batting average, an 85 point drop in on-base percentage, and a 130 point drop is slugging percentage. Wow.
