Based on his limited experience he could still end up anywhere from a 2 hitter to a 9 hitter or anything in between (including middle of the order) based on his actual production. and 150K per season isn't a huge concern if you're posting .950 OPS numbers.
Yes, the AFL is a good hitter's league, blah blah blah. Danks was at the end of his first professional (injury plagued) season when he put up those numbers. Not like he's been around for years playing in AA or AAA. That's why it is of important note if you can take your head out of a stat report long enough to take his individual situation into consideration.
Sorry. Not going to buy into the hype of an AFL performance until I see similar numbers put up in full season ball. The High-A line was an aberration and unsustainable. Should we be slobbering over Morel's 1.020 OPS from the AFL as well?
