maybe piscotty's approach changes in 2015 will mean he's yet another decent cardinal prospect to turn into a way better star than his minor league pedigree would indicate.
i did overlook holliday though.
I'm not terribly optimistic about either personally. Grichuk's career bears resemblance to someone who could crash out as swing holes get exploited, and Piscotty - BABIP is not a regular if his defense is as poor as it was in MLB last year. But they both were far more productive than those projections so in the spirit of not being a complete homer I'd not be surprised if they were above average hitters. The original point remains though, even with all of those concessions they do not touch the current Cub lineup or heart of the order.
