So Bailey regaurdless of how long he's been in the majors is only 8 months older than Travis Wood and is only 18 months older than Mike Leake. So it's not as though Bailey is a finished product. Bailey himself is still learning to pitch at the major league level, and I thought at the end of last year he was making some strides.
age and experience are 2 totally different things though. I agree Bailey isnt a finished product either, but even though close in age, he has years of experience over Leake now.
