DateQuestionAnswer
2008-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Wieters still in High A? Isn't he 22? Isn't Ramon Hernandez is a FA at the end of the season? Shouldn't they be seeing what he can do against/with better pitching?
(rogerlamarque from Brooklyn)
I'm totally with you. I don't get it either. He's ready and it's not like Ben Davis (yes, THAT Ben Davis) is some kind of block for him at Double-A. (Kevin Goldstein)
