  1. You know. Speaking of Sabermetrics, there are some players who just came along too early.

    Take Randy Milligan.

    He had a career OBP of .409 in the minors but didn’t get a shot until he was 28 with a mediocre Orioles team.

    All he did in his Major League Career is post a .391 obp with a respectable .811 OPS. He played good (not great) defense at 1B. Yet, he was out of the game by 32 having only 703 career games.

    If he played 15 years later he probably would have had three times longer of a major league career.

  2. But then again to play devils advocate with myself, look at Chris Shelton.

    His lifetime stats are .423 obp and .531 slgin the minors and a very respectable .281/.348/.477 in 250 major league games. Yet, he is stuck in Toledo as a 27 year old.
