The point is Jay isn't looking like the super-prospect anymore. Now he is looking like a green 21 year old hitter who can't handle offspeed pitches very well. It may not be fair, but I think Princeton said it the best: we expected so much more.
Bailey on the otherhand limited himself a bit and used April as a workshop. Once he gets his fastball underneath him, he should take off.
