Dominic Brown, Reid Brignac, Travis Snider, Fernando Martinez, Joel Guzman, and Brandon Wood.
I tried to find players that:
A. Destroyed High A pitching
B. Didn't play much AAA ball before their MLB debut.
C. Got a lot of press like Mr Hamilton
Not sure who is advocating Hamilton not to play much AAA ball before his MLB debut.
Furthermore, not even sure what this proves. There are always disappointments and busts. It's hard to argue they were that way because they were rushed, or they just couldn't adjust to the next level. Either way, I'm not sure how this impacts my original argument for those five guys to get promoted to the next minor league level, as I've already established that doing so wouldn't be rushing them.
I also never guaranteed any of these guys would be huge successes at the major league level. I have at least as much doubt as the next guy. I'm just saying there is nothing left for them to prove at their current minor league levels, and therefore they should be promoted to the next minor league level. That is all.
