In the ORG and in a few posts here there seems to be some concern about Woods lack of experience above the AA level.
I, for one, believe he should get the 5th starters spot base on his season last year and his performance this spring.
Keep in mind Cueto had a very similar meteoric rise through the system. He Started in A+ and only had 14 starts above that level (4 in AAA) before making the team in 2008. Wood's 2009 season was consideribly more impressive than Cuetos 2007 was...
Does the doubt around Wood center around the fact he throws 83 to 92 vs 88 to 97 like Cueto does? I think that plays favorably to him in a rotation soon to be filled with flame throwers.
Wood to me in all his interviews has a tough, go get em bulldog mentality. He seems to become more of a pitcher every day. I am sure Lehr or Maloney will probably get the spot, but as I have said before, whats the point of developing prospects if you don't let them play?
