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.

"Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."
