But, but, but....he had a great 2/3 of a year at AAA - he was a late bloomer!

All kidding aside (though is the above really kidding to some?), I think people are just desperate for something better than Tyler Flowers.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
