    All that.....and above average defense in center??? How is the arm?

    If he is really this good, why do I have a feeling he won't be cracking any top 50 lists going into 07? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I've read that the arm is above average...and his speed gives him excellent jumps on fly balls.

    So I guess the only tool he is missing is power.

    yeah... , but I think thatīs a good thing, every team needs a slap hitter (DET Polanco, STL Eckstein).

    At worst Brett is a very legitimate chip not named Clippard, Tabata, or Hughes.
    Wilbon: What is it specifically about Arod that guys like Schill and Trot Nixon just can't stand?

    Kornheiser: He's better looking, he's cooler, he's got all the money. That's what they can't stand.

    So, if one must choose between our two potential, weak-hitting OFers, who do you guys choose? Melky or Gardner? Granted, Melky will develop more, but his body can only grow out so much and with Tabata and Action Jackson lurking down the line, someone will have to give way... in a perfect world anyway...

    I feel like Melky is essentially a 4th outfielder so I'm going to go with Brett.

    Gardner went 0-4 with a BB and a Run.

    Duncan 2-5 with a Homer, 2 RBIīs and 2 runs scored.

    Kennard allowed 2 runs over an inning of work.

    Gardner seems like Scott Podsednik with more patience and better defense.

    And better offense.

    So he's not like Scott Podsednik at all, really.

    It was the closest I could think of among speedy outfielders who lack power. He isn't juan pierre, he certainly isn't carl crawford, he isn't chone figgins, he isn't ryan freel, he isn't corey patterson.

    In your opinion, which current major leaguer has a skill set most similar to Gardner's?

    Upon examination, a young Dave Roberts doesn't seem too big of a stretch. Although it seems like Gardner will strike out more often.

    It's funny how you will take a kid who only play at double a over a kid you is in the major. It does not make sense, since they are the same age and Melky is proving it at the show while Brett has not reach that level and may not even reach that level. There is no comparison until Brett plays with the big boys and puts up the numbers.

    That's interesting. All I know of Dave Roberts is him in recent years and I think Brett will easily surpass that. I'll have to go look at Roberts' numbers from earlier in his career.

    Re: The 2006 AFL Thread

    I read that Gardner didnt make the all star team but Duncan did.

    Seems unfair, imo.

    What would you predict for Gardner's eventual big league numbers right now?

    Toughto say: .290/.375, 30 steals?

    Re: The 2006 AFL Thread

    An off day for Gardner 0-4 w/ 3 K's

    Henn and Beam were terrible with the only positive being Rasner w/ 5 innings of 1 hit, shutout ball.
