I am not comparing him to the individual players, but right now the trend is for players to come to MLB younger and I did expect him to do that.

On the flip side of that argument, it means he's under team control through his prime this way. (Under the current CBA.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we have members who said he was too old to draft in the 2nd round. Also, could somebody show me where the trend is for younger players to come to the MLB.

25% of the time you can beat anybody. 25% of the time you can't beat nobody. It's the other 50% of the time that defines you as a pitcher.

You're welcome to dig up the draft thread Howie, but I'm pretty sure most of us were pretty happy we got him there. 

 

and also, wasn't he a supplemental first rounder?

Unrelated to Booker, but the Honorable Mentions ranking flips Gonsalves and Gordon from where they were originally ranked.
