This is very different from the case of Nady or that of former Padres first baseman Roberto Petagine, in whose honor I have named this principle.

Petagine never got that chance but continued to dominate the minor leagues before embarking on a successful career in Japan, which only served to fuel the fire of his believers.
On the other hand, there were those who insisted that Petagine was nothing more than a "Quadruple-A" caliber player: too good for the minors, not good enough for the big leagues.But again, due to his lack of opportunity, these folks were expressing belief based on a combination of what they knew and what they thought they knew.
The truth, as often is the case, lay not at either end of the spectrum but rather toward the middle.What we knew with certainty about Petagine is that he had absolutely mastered the minor leagues and that he hadn't done much at the big-league level in samples too small to carry much meaning.
Both sides could cite evidence to support their belief of Petagine's true level of ability, but without his being given the opportunity to demonstrate his capablilities in the only forum that mattered (i.e., the Show), nobody could prove anything.
And thus any discussion of Petagine's ability neccessarily becomes a religious debate -- a question of faith, of belief.
