First base: "I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought'd do any good"
Hopefully everyone recognized that quote from War Games. But it came to mind when i saw Eric Campbell's second inning double today to bring his Spring Record to 7-17 for a .411 batting average. Now obviously it's ST so you can throw those numbers out the window.
But in the minor leagues the now 26-year-old was a veritable on base machine, albeit not with much power. But geez, in 120 games last year he hit .314 with an OBP of well over .400.
I understand those are PCL numbers from Las Vegas but it wasn't like he was crashing the ball with previously unseen power. His high OBP tells me he's got a decent approach.
I dunno, I'd just rather see him than Duda and Davis. Of course, I also like my boy Satin and I know you can't platoon two righties at first base. But i wouldnt write this guy off.
