Famous Predictions

"Can't act. Can't sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little."

- A film company's verdict on Fred Astaire's 1928 screen test.

Add this one to the list of famous predictions (via Bucs Dugout):
"Shelton fits the new wave of evaluation -- on-base percentage, slugging percentage," Pirates director of player development Brian Graham said. "Does that play on the Major League level with a player who had a month and a half in Double-A? We'll see."

Yep, we'll see. Five homers now and counting. One question for Mr. Graham: What wave of evaluation was it that led to a decision to hold on to Mike Lincoln and Joe Beimel?
