Now entering his fourth Major League season, is it too early, or too small a sample size to observe that Gregory Polanco is an injury prone mediocre/decent Major League player and nowhere near the stud/superstar we have been expecting?

Injury prone? Maybe.

But he has statistically gotten better and better each season in the Majors, and until he levels off, I think its too early to say that he is just a mediocre player.

I wouldn't call him injury prone. He's been mostly healthy.

But I would agree nowhere near a superstar, he's not going to become one. But his best years are ahead of him. He's still only 25.

I'd take many MLB players over Polanco. He is NOT the big bat I thought he'd be.

He's still young.

It's not time to quit on him yet, despite this year's Jose Tabata-esque disappointment.

I suspect he was typing on the iPhone because he spilled his drink on the keyboard of his computer.
