I've really been enjoying this new forum, so thanks to everyone who has made it possible. I do have a question for those of you more versed in minor league info than I:
What is the difference between Dayton and Louisville in terms of prospect development? It seems that there are often players at Dayton (Bailey now, Dunn and Kearns in the past) who are already being talked about as 'major league ready' but have yet to move up to AAA Louisville. Is this just a function of age? If not, what are the factors involved? Does Louisville end up being more of a 'holding tank' for borderline players (Denorfia) and retreads while Dayton is where the promising young prospects go? Are Kriv and co. redefining these levels as we speak?
A lot of general questions, I know... but any answers would be greatly appreciated.
