WMP was rushed to the major leagues because of his contract. He was very young for his minor league levels. He did very well at Dayton. He didn't do particularly well at AA. He then started well at AAA and went to the majors at age 21. Not really comparable at all.
I understand the stereotype. I also understand the argument about walk rate. I just think this guy, JF, is in the process of understanding the game, and his ability is off the charts. I prefer him to many of these solid, all around, traditional guys who may not have these special abilities. That's all.
