|Really not sure why McNabb never got a shot; he was a minor-league All-Star twice, once as you see here at Burlington in 1992, and also at Osceola the following year, the average was good, the speed was outstanding, and the strikeout numbers were not unreasonable, either. |
McNabb led the 1992 Burlington Astros (and the entire farm system, as well) with 56 steals, led the 1993 Osceola Astros in the same category, led the '94 Jackson Generals in hits, games, and steals, and hit over .285 four times during his Astro career, including once at the AA level. Kicked out of the organization in a deal that netted the Astros Mitch Meluskey from the Indians, McNabb rejoined the organization a year later as a free agent. Yet still, he got all of 19 at bats for even a AAA ballclub. Hard to imagine that a guy who stole as many bases as McNabb did would have had an effort or attitude problem, and if not, you kind of have to say that the man might have been jobbed more than a little bit. . . .
