    His minor league numbers are not that impressive. He basically proved he can hit singles to along with elite speed and a less than ideal walk rate. Lots of failed prospects that can attest to the same attributes.

    I don't expect power, that's why I don't think he is ever going to be anything special as a major league player (guys who hit only singles and rarely walk face an uphill battle unless they can annually hit close to .300). You keep telling us that he is not horrible because of his track record in the minor leagues. But his track record in the minor leagues suggest nothing that he is a for sure bet to stick as an every day player in the big leagues.

    He doesn't hit well, he doesn't play defense well, he doesn't walk well, he strikes out too much. The only thing Dee Gordon is good at is being fast, which doesn't help much when you don't reach base

    Everyone forgets dee was only a baseball player since junior year in high school, is a terror on the base paths and just needs a full season of playing. He needs to learn how to translate his minors hitting success to the majors and he will be a stud he had a good average in 3-4 real seasons in the minors and only had one injury shortened year in the majors following his 1st year which was a success. 2011 7 walks in 233 abs 2012 20 walks in 330 abs that is improvement, the top of the order other than kemp was a little light lets face it.
    Go dodgers!!!!

    he has about the same stats tejada's walks went down last year in more abs and his SO went up, tejada with about 5 sb's a year compared to only a few less so's, compared to about the same amount of walks and 28 more stolen bases in less at bats really???? Now on the d side the 12 errors to dee's 18 is pretty close at a .946 tejada and dee, .974 fielding percentage I would say that is pretty close.
    I am kind of a super fan but ill take the base swiping in front of kemp than tejada with no speed all day long?

    And tejada seems to have the same minors numbers with less average, less walks and a drastic stolen base difference. Who is failed the guy got hurt last year and has half the major league ab's than tejada?

    Oh well his logic. Starting baseball as a junior in high school is probably pretty common and thats still been like 8 years. It matters 0
