He got the well deserved promotion and has been getting a little roughed up in High A.
He is no longer the second coming.
This is just an example, but it seems as if logic sometimes leaves the building when it comes to Cincy prospects. I'm sure that Bruce's K/BB rate would be brought up if he was a Cards prospect, for example.
Then Watson throws a gem and is the second coming again. Pujols only walked 38 times in low A at 20(granted, "supposedly" lol). If you can't see Bruce's improvements lately, shame on you. The point is, he is doing stuff at a age that "suggests" superstar. Similiar with Upton. While Maybin after a good 2 month start, has falling by the wayside the last 5 weeks. Maybe Maybin has a better career than Bruce and Upton, his current numbers don't suggest it.
