That;s a strawman if I ever saw one. Clearly no one is suggesting that these kids determine their own training routine etc. There has been abundant criticism of the extreme(in the industry) way the Pirates handle their pitchers in the low minors. To act differently is just a different version of blind FO faith. Seems such faith is prevalent amongst some posters here and at BD. I’m not saying the criticism is merited but to suggest such a belief is absurd is a bit ridiculous in and of itself.

Given the other things he said, I don’t think he resents the training methods, just happy that he’s reached a point where he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Wouldn’t you feel better if you got to show up to work tomorrow and decide exactly how you were going to do your job? Don’t you think it would be stupid to invest lots of money in 18 and 19 year olds just to say, ok, go ahead, do whatever you feel like. I think it’s safe to assume that the Pirates have their specific quirks, but that every organization does in some way or another.

Sure the developmental people have the best of intentions, but players play, coaches coach.

Perhaps he could clarify what he meant?
