Why not Thorpe or [/FONT]Gonsalves[FONT=Verdana]?
Penilla had a 5.40 ERA in the GCL last year....he has a 5.40 ERA this year...I can't see how he helps the team win or builds for future.
And while we are talking about the Low A Starting rotation, why the heck is Jose [/FONT]Montanez still getting a shot at starting? He wasn't good last year, and he's not good now.
I am not privy to insider info coming out of the EST. But based on past performance, I can't see what is gained by holding back Thorpe and Gonsalves.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

I admit to confusion over Thorpe and Gonsalves being not in CR.
I don't mind them starting the season in EST but the current starters are not impressive. Unless they are stinking it up down there I can't see any benefit not bringing them to low A

also, another great point was made above, we don't know everything that is happening at Extended Spring Training.
I did see Penilla in spring training and thought he looked pretty impressive. He's only made one start. Give him an opportunity and then go with the younger guys.
But SD Buhr is correct, others will get opportunities later in the season.
