This isn't about picking apart Dusty's quotes.
It's about how ridiculous it is that a Major League manager is making it seem noteworthy that a 31-year-old pitcher won 16 games with a 4.07 ERA between AA and AAA in 2007 and has won 14 games with a 4.66 ERA this season.
If he wants to say "Pettyjohn's had a good year, so rewarding him might be a good idea," then I have no issue with that. But to actually imply that winning 15-16 games at that age in AAA means he could get things done in the majors is absurd.
