The link takes you to a story about famous Cubs (and SF Giants), and the numbers of games each spent in the minors. The impetus for the story was Starlin Castro's recent 3-error game, and reflections on how many minor league games are enough. In other words, what length of time seems suitable for gaining the needed experience and practice for ML success?
Of course this got me thinking about the Royals. I wonder what our team's average was, during the successful years of the 70s, 80s, and maybe even early 90s, for minor league gestation? Who spent the least time in the minors? The most? - TL
