A fair point to make but they're definitely useless after only 90 games.

Parmelee isn't the fastest guy in the field, but he isn't afraid to get dirty and seems to have a fairly strong and accurate arm. I was definitely impressed with his ability to throw guys out from right field in 2013. If he could hit the way we want him to, his arm, accuracy, and his willingness to get dirty would make up for his lack of speed. But unfortunately he's just not hitting good enough.

I thought Parmelee was a nice surprise- sure, Revere would have jogged to balls that Parmelee dove for, but CP was better than serviceable out there. The D is only good enough if he's a real hitter, of course.
Thanks for the clips, RB. I have three impressions after watching them all.
1) Parmelee made some very nice catches.
2) Twins pitchers sure did give up some rockets.
3) I don't really care to know more about Bo Jackson and his energy requirements.

For a big guy lumbering around in right, Parmelee does a pretty good job. Nice arm. But, it's not worth it with his bat. He just can't catch up with fastballs. Now, with Arcia, I'd take it, as his bat is major league plus. I'd never want Parmelee in the field with Arcia on the bench, period.
