Look ma, no walks!
You don't think a .752 OPS is an F in the Pac Coast League? According to this year's stats a .752 OPS makes you better than only 12 other hitters in the PCL. I'd say that's an F.
He doesn't even crack the top 100 leaderboard for OPS in 2010 for the PCL. In 2011, he was the 72nd best PCL hitter by OPS. Heck, Mike Jacobs (who is a terrible, terrible hitter) had a .910 OPS in the PCL.
Don't know if I'm looking at the wrong stats but I'm seeing an .871 OPS in 2011 which would rank him 28th overall. But I see your point, hard to argue with Mike Jacobs.

Whenever we talk about Brett Pill, I feel like the turd in the oatmeal, but here it goes anyway. If Brett Pill could hit like an MLB first baseman, we did he wait until he was 24 and in AA before showing any signs of life with the bat? Why did he flunk AAA the first time around like it was O-Chem? Why did he wait around until he was a 26 year old in the PCL before slugging .500 for the first time? It's not to say he can't do it, because, you know, @cantpredictball. But he's certainly going to have to be one of those guys who makes it in spite of the odds.
Flunking AAA the first time? .275/.319/.433 16HR 84RBI, doesn't sound like an F. Pill may not be an everyday player, but I'd much rather have him on the bench next season than a Cabrera, or even Cody Ross. Also RBI totals in minors: 35, 91, 65, 109, 84, 107
I don't mind keeping Pill around as a pinch-hitter at all. But yes, .275/.319./.433 from a 25 year old first baseman in the PCL is an F. You can't keep a job as an mlb first baseman unless you are an above average hitter, and Pill was a below average hitter for the PCL. Not a below average first baseman, a below average hitter. I don't even slightly care about minor league RBI totals.
