Heya Keith. How far off do you think Gary Brown is from The Show? Can the Giants afford to let Pagan walk, especially since he is seeking something in the 5/$60 range?

Given Brown's performance this year and how he looked in the AFL, I'm not so sure he's the long-term answer in CF any more.
Even Keith Law should know the AFL doesn't mean anything.
Brown had a bad year at AA as well. He took a big step back last year, especially for a top prospect. If hes going to struggle to get to AAA, the Giants need to look at other options for the next couple years.
I don't think he had a bad year in AA, it wasn't amazing but pretty average.
Don't know how a stat line of : .317//357/.385 in the AFL would change anyone's mind about what kind of player he is.
I think he'll start off in AAA and play well enough to get a mid-season call up or a cup of coffee at the very least. Not worried about him yet.
