    Actually for a teenager at LOW A he has a very respectable WHIP.

    Yep, and there is no shortage of relievers in the system that deserve to pitch over Scott Schoenwis. Scott Chiasson and Brad Salmon for sure

    Bull Sh*^@ If you think that teams don’t look at numbers for these players you know less about the minor leagues than your email address would suggest.

    If Wood was totally sucking as a 19 year old at LOW A I wouldn’t be concerned, however the fact he has great peripherals is a fantastic sign.

    People need to get over the fact that MOST minor leaguers don’t make it. I want all of the guys in our system to excel, but I can be realistic enough to know that there are probably less than 10 guys right now in our system that will ever be Major Leaguers. And only 2 or 3 will be good ones.

    I think Krivsky said the other day that he would shut down Bailey when he got to 30 innnings over what he did last year. I bet they do the same with Wood.
