A Gelalich-- first-round-supplimental pick, remember-- would look much better in low A for the rest of the season even if he's struggling a bit than in Billings, where he might dominate. Same with Amaral.
Both are high Division I players.
They should be playing in Dayton.
Agreed. While its very hard for me (or anyone) to be overly critical of this scouting and development staff because they have been spectacular the last 5-7 years, it's really puzzling why guys like Gelalich and Langfield at least aren't starting in Dayton. Big time college players drafted in the first couple rounds belong there.
