Youth will be served



I've been playing around looking at players age 30 and under on our roster and comparing to those 31 or older.

I split it that way so that Roberts could be with the "young guys". Arbitrary, sure...but hey, it's my post.  Seriously, I look at him as part of the youth of the team, because he doesn't have a lot of major league PA's and he plays a very youthful style of ball. 

The only guy over 31 with an OPS over 100 is Henry Blanco on the strength of those early season homers.  Then it's a pretty steep drop to Willie and his 81.

Here is the quicky snapshot, below is the full table, sorted by PA's.  The data speaks for itself.
