Re: Phillip Ervin 1st Pro Homer
Vottomatic, I hope Ervin forces his way thru the system very quickly. That would be great.
But for a hitter, a 10-20 game stretch just doesn't give you a good idea of where he is overall. Especially one that has just begun pro ball. Maybe he is just on a hot streak. Maybe the league will catch right back up to him. Maybe he is exactly this good.
But, for a guy that just got drafted, you gotta give him a little time to show what he's made of.
I'd rather a guy move quickly by skipping a level once or twice, rather than quickly promoting him based on a small sample of work. There is absolutely no reason to rush this guy. (In terms of jumping him up levels further/faster than he warrants)
