No moving Wade to AAA? How old is he now?
There is no reason Gordon should spend all of next year in the minors. That's about 180 degrees off how Houston or the Cubs would run their rosters.
Wade is 23 and was drafted two years ago. He is right where he should be. He's doing well, though slumping some of late.
I think Gordon could be a straight-from-AA guy later this year... Or he could start next year in AAA and come up soon. No way he's in the minors all year next year. (I mean, unless something weird happens).
