Re: David Vidal
I'm a big believer in giving an up and comer a taste of the big leagues in September, probably a year before they're ready. Seems like Alonso and others did better this year after tasting it in 2010. Obviously an adjustment playing in the majors versus the minors...........bigger crowds, more fringe benefits, etc. Probably some intimidation at first.
But I also realize that starting their major league clock can be a factor too.
