"James Loney, forever a spark plug for debate among executives, scouts, and fans alike.
Prior to the 2002 draft, there was debate as to whether he was better as a pitcher or a hitter. During his time in the minors, there was debate as to whether he would ever use his size to develop a power stroke. In the majors, he has sparked many different debates between fans, most of them revolving around his RBI totals.
Now though, there’s a different debate going on, one that revolves around his sudden improvement late in 2011 season.
