MASTER NOTES: Who is the real Wil Myers?

Shortly before Wil Myers was called up to Tampa in mid-June, a look at our Playerlink page showed a rather uninspiring projection:

157 AB, 4 HR, 19 RBI, 2 SB, .244 BA.

Myers has outperformed that projection with ease:

139 AB, 7 HR, 27 RBI, 5 SB, .331 BA (thru 7/30)
