Beware Spring Training Rookie Hype: Yonder Alonso

Reds' Alonso no match for Votto - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN

"For the moment, let's dispense with the notion that Alonso is ready for the majors. He's played only 29 games above Class A, and wasn't outstanding in those 29 games. As John Sickels points out in his new book (which you should buy), as a professional Alonso's got a .211/.326/.296 line against left-handed pitchers ... and was little better while starring for Miami."

Ray here-was Neyer breaking new ground with that blog post? isn't that assumed.
BTW-Ryan Howard hit.207-.298-.356 vs lefties last year.
