    What went from a future Miami Murderers row in Low A last year now looks like a group wide letdown. Something to remember with pitching prospects.
    These guys are 19 and 20 years old. They have plenty of time. Just because they aren't on the Hughes or Bailey fast track doesn't mean they are busts yet.

    Very good to see EE go 2-4 and score the game winning run. It shows he's taking the demotion as well as you can expect.

    Oh absolutely. I completely agree - but it also goes to show the volatile nature of young pitching.

    All too often everyone thinks of prospects in terms of linear ascension. That tens to be the exception, not the rule.
