Entering Mauer's numbers into a WAR calculator shows that a shift in position from C to 1B, assuming he'll have above average defense, would drop his WAR from 5.4 (bbref) or 5.2 (fangraphs) to...
Normalizing his absurd 2009 to his career average HR/FB rate I got a line of .342/.425/.495 (.920) with an ISO .153 and 14 HRs. I don't think he'll get quite back to those heights, but I do think the...
Definitely, yes. Santana reached AA a year before Florimon, has put up a higher OPS in the minors, and even made fewer errors, with a higher range factor, last year than Florimon did in his age-22...

Exactly. I was looking at Giancarlo Stanton's minor league history earlier today and was pleasantly surprised to see an almost exact replica of Sano's AA struggles. He was promoted in the middle of...
