No idea. Very surprising that Wood has not moved up. All I can tell you is this: Sometimes, despite a guy being dominant at one level, there could be something that they feel he must improve on to be effective at the next level, something he may be getting away with against younger hitters. I spent eight years in Double-A and that was a common thing. Maybe a guy was leaving a pitch up and Double-A hitters were chasing it but they knew Triple-A guys would lay off, and they were waiting for the guy to make the improvement, ie: consistently keep the ball down. But it is hard to imagine, based on Wood's numbers, that there could be anything he is doing that would not translate to a higher level. Still, I would caution anyone not to expect a promotion based strictly on numbers if you have not seen the player on a fairly consistent basis.
This is definitely a needed move.
I really think the time is now to promote Frazier though. I really don't know what else he has left to prove in AA.
Stubbs has been awful lately. I much prefer it when he proves me wrong instead of proves me right. Him proving me wrong would be better for the Reds.
