No, that has nothing to do with wanting last year's second-round pick to do well in rookie ball. We're talking about rookie ball here. Rookie ball.
Anyone disappointed with Yorman Rodriguez? Thought so. Well, he's only 19. And could at least hit when he was in rookie ball.
Also, no one is completely writing Rosa off (at least I'm not). I said I was very disappointed in him thus far. I stand by that. He was bad with the AZL Reds last year and he was bad with Billings this year. Still an extremely young guy, I get that. But I also expect more out of a second-round pick.
Just when I think Buckley is a genius, he makes picks like Rosa last year and Jeff Gelalich this year. Head-scratchers to say the least.
