One would hope we could at least learn from the mistakes we made bringing Wags up too quickly a few years back. No sense in having him come up, do awesome in his first start b/c no one's seen him, then just get shelled as big leaguers see him again. Then we end up putting him in the bullpen, he becomes a whatever middle reliever and we all rehash what "could have been" for the next 5-7 years.

It's hard to do when we're in the middle of a postseason race for the first time in a while, but patience is the key here. Get that breaking ball over for strikes Homer; once you do, you're gonna be a star for years to come for our boys in Cincy.
