And that's absolutely not ****ing true, high OBP regardless of the BA that's attached with it, is a positive sign for a developing hitter because it displays solid command and understanding of the strike zone. Yeah, you're right, guys will be challenged by better pitchers at higher levels, which is why you want guys who have the patience and eye to lay off bad **** at the lower levels. You actually think a guy who can't help himself from swinging at A-ball level junk is going to have any kind of success in the Majors? That's a larf.
