Was he moved up too fast when maybe there was more to work on or did he accomplish all he could in AAA and it is just that he cannot hit ML pitching?

This year is going to be much worse because they are going to have to drop more players off that 40 man than they have in a long time to keep the large amount of players eligible for the rule 5 draft and they are probably going to let a few players go that are going to wind up on major league rosters.
Could be that we are going to see some of these bubble minor league guys moved this year so the Pirates don’t lose them for nothing.

Lincoln was ranked about where we took him by everyone. It isn’t as if the Pirates drafted a guy that most team’s had as #25 on their draft board. (Which is closer to the case w/Tony Sanchez btw.)

That has slowed his movement through the system.

Clayton Kershaw, Tim Lincecum, Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek, Ian Kennedy. Really Pirates scouts? Really?

I see other teams get college players through minors very quickly, Buster Posey was drafted year before Sanchez and already has 1 year of service time and they were both college catchers. Wieters was a college level catcher drafted in 2007 and he has been in majors for 1+ year. If a player is doing well at a level consistently he needs to be moved up. That player will not learn anything by continuting at that level. I just feel like we are over catuious and it hurts our players develpment.
