EDIT: Also, at the time of that thread Harper was still mainly a RF, right? A RF with a 113 OPS+ isn't nearly as exciting as a competent CF with the same hitting skills.
I don't really see anything wrong with my prediction.
I think that the mistake cardsfanboy made in that thread was in overestimating how many good position players there are in the league. He pretty much nailed Harper's absolute value. His mistake was in thinking that that value is league average for an OF.
Moreover, he absolutely NAILED what Harper would be ("110 ops+ with plus's across the board") - he just underrated what type of player that represented.
I think cardsfanboy wasn't all that unfair in the earlier thread. In fact, much of what he wrote (about how Harper was going to be scouted and that he would soon need to make adjustments because pitchers would be altering their approach) turned out to be downright prophetic.
Well, your investment advice still sucks.
Well you do know that I never actually posted that stock tip that was supposedly quoted from me. Although it would have been a good joke if I would have thought of it.
