Among all the disappointing pitching in the majors, it is great to see performances like Shibuya tonight. A ray of hope.
Shibuya is probably too old for his level.
The guy he pitched against was almost 2 years younger. Hopefully the Twins do a mass round of call ups / down soon.
Sano Rosario Shibuya up to High A
Arcia up to AA
Bromberg up to AAA
and put Benson down to High A until he remembers how to hit.
No need for him to take AB away from Hicks or Arcia

I never trust a pitching pefromance by older players against younger players.
This must be why Pavano is dominating this year.

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

Seth, love your passion and work, but this is an area we disagree. I don't think Boer, for example, got anything out of dominating a bunch of 17-19 year olds last year. I do agree with your statement that moving them quickly makes up for their lower start, that part makes sense.
It's not like Boer pitched well when he went to Beloit last year... and it's not like Summers figured out the Midwest League instantly this year... I mean, if they're not pitching well over something a little longer than a small sample, whats' the rush? That's my only point. It's not about getting them to the big leagues faster... it's about them being ready when they get there... or at least it should be.
