Robert only hit .297 at Charlotte, Madrigal .331.

Robert didn't hit as well as Eloy at AAA.

Eloy had a helluva lot more total pro at bats. Not even close. I like em both. Robert had a 30/30 in his first full season in the minors. Pretty amazing.

Robert slumped last couple weeks. Might be a bit worn down..,three teams, three cities, three apts in 3 months. He may have also been trying to do too much to get promoted. Robert hitting .290 is like Madrigal hitting .450

O don't get me wrong. I love Robert as a prospect. But as Min says, this is his first full season in the minors. Yes, Eloy had much more minor league experience. Robert needs that experience.

These are all arguments demonstrating why those clamoring for Roberts to be called up are dopes.

...if he signs an "Eloy-type contract" during Spring Training.  Otherwise he'll start the season in Charlotte and we'll see him in Chicago in early May.

Did no farm team make the playoffs?
