In response to southpaw777's comment:
You just dont get it Boom, and it appears that you dont even want to understand.
You expect excellence from all newly drafted prospects in their 1st season of pro ball or they're all busts and it was the "worst draft in history". Just because a kid played a year or 2 in college doesnt mean that its going to translate right away to pro ball. It might actually take afew months or God forbid a year or 2. And for your information, Most high school kids drafted (Buttrey and Callahan to name 2) start out is short season Lowell. They probably wouldnt be able to handle a full season at Greenville right out of the gate and at that young age you want to work them in, not push them in...I could go on and on why your comments and views toward newly drafted prospects is not realistic (ironic, since this is supposed to be a realistic thread) but I think it would just fall on deaf ears.
Bottom line. Your way off base on this Boom.
Hello, is anyone home? Someone page this poster and ask him what part of an ERA above 4.00 for each of our top 5 pitchers on the current Greenville team is actually promising or hopeful. And all of them have college experience. And the 2 guys who didn't make the squad...does that qualify them as promising? Face it. The early indicators are not good. Accept it. Just accept the data that is staring you in the face. And the hitting prospects and not any better at all.
As I clearly said in an above post it is possible some make it. It is possible that some emerge and I even gave 2 examples of players who appeared to be real bad at first but turned it around eventually. My point was that so far they are horrible. What part of that is difficult to understand? Okk at the data. If I had to bet I would probably put my money on Calahan and Buttrey since virtually no returns are in on them yet and Johnson as his fundementals are not as bad as his ERA but if you want to argue that I'm way off base in evaluating the Greenville team you are arguing with ZERO data to back you up. Zero.
I was right...DEAF EARS.
Your way off base for evaluating 1st year players with about 30IP and considering this draft the "worst in history" because of those minimal innings pitched. Now again, why cant you seem to get that through your head?
Im done here. Please dont bother responding because you apparently dont get it And I dont really care for your snarky wise azz attitude either when someone challenges you. Just drop it.
