Todd Frazier was a first round pick and similar college star who didn't make his debut until four years after he was drafted - the equivalent of 2017 for Ervin. Correctly, no one ever labeled Frazier as a massive disappointment.
I think expecting him to be in the big leagues at any point in 2014 is relatively unrealistic, unless he really lights the world on fire.

Who's first to the majors- Drew Stubbs or Todd Fraizer?
Put the house on Frazier for me.

Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
