    [QUOTE]I don't want the fast track, I want the right track.  The guy is clearly a big talent with huge upside....isn't it reasonable to assume the Sox know what they are doing and a bunch of people on the internet don't have enough information to make the decision to move him up? Maybe they want to build his confidence....maybe he's been told to work on a few things....who knows?  Maybe they are just being slightly conservative with a guy that could become a star. Not only that, but if ends up pitching some games in AA this year isn't two promotions in one year the "fast track"?

    Right. If he's working on things ( pretty certain ) and makes mistakes in the lower minors, he's less likely to get hurt by them. State of mind is at least as important as a great arm.

    I'm all for Barnes doing great....I'm just wondering if ADG is his agent or wants to be.

    :o)
