I guess my point was that he only spent about 6-8 weeks in AA last year before getting promoted. He's facing harder competition now, and he's working through his tweaks.
It's not as if he repeated a level and started tanking.
But yea, he definitely hasn't improved and given the super high expectations, he's been disappointing.
Not trying to split hairs or say you are wrong, just giving my opinion. Billy has time to make adjustments. I just think some people (not you Doug) are being a bit harsh on a guy that has been promoted very aggressively.
