    1 unearned run but 3 overall along with only 3K/2W in 4.1ip

    That to me is still struggling for that game. I am not trying to be overly critical just pointing out facts because some posters wanted to seem to call him the next coming with just a year and a half of ball between high A and AA.

    I disagree.

    If a pitcher is cruising through the minors on 2 pitches, dominating. But he's told he won't make it at the major league level unless he works on his other pitches.......I'm sure he's working on other pitches to add to his repetoire. I don't blame him.

    He's shown what he's capable of. Now he's got to show some refining of other pitches.

    What are you disagreeing with?

    Are you claiming to have inside information on his situation to which he was told expand what type of pitches you throw because you won't make it?

    How do you know that it is just not the league getting a scouting report on him or wearing down from pitching as many innings as he has thus far?

    You already established bubba that you had an agenda to show he's not the next coming. Bottom line... last 2 games he's pitched 9.1 innings, with an ERA below 1.00.

    Just because I disagree does not mean that I have an "agenda". Also I look at peripherals when discussing how a pitching prospect in AA is doing. Just because he is not giving up runs does not mean everything is running smoothly as it had been for him prior.
