2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)At a season ticket holder's forum on Saturday, the O's GM MacPhail said that the organization believes in slow and steady advancement of its young pitchers. As an example, he noted that despite an excellent season last year at A+ Frederick, Chorye Spoon was not invited to the major league camp and is likely to go to AA Bowie to begin this season. He said that he's hoping to get the Orioles to the position they were in in 1982-1983 when Mike Boddicker could not break his way into the majors until he was 29 (in 1983),but when he did come up he was really ready. What are your thoughts on that philosophy of development. It's sure a change from the philosophy that brought up Daniel Cabrera from A ball in the middle of the season!
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Actually, Boddicker was 25 in 83, and got brief looks in each of the three previous years. Luckily, the 40-man roster and option systems prevent the O's from hording prospects in the minors until they're all 29 and 'really ready.' Really ready is a totally realative term and each player is different. Wasn't Andruw Jones really ready at 19? Griffey? (Kevin Goldstein)
