You are right, kid pitchers do fail in large numbers.... but we aren't talking just any kid pitchers, we are talking kid pitchers in the upper minors with successful track records all the way through AA. there is a large difference between a 19 year old with tons of potential in Low A and a 21 or 22 year old with tons of potential in AA/AAA and you know it. You are using an awful large paint brush to paint your picture when in fact you should be using a fine brush to paint the picture involving the Reds prospects (at least with Bailey and Cueto, not so much Maloney).
