If you simply look at it like that, then sure. But he's only going to be in A+ ball for a couple weeks, make a couple starts... There's no reason the Brewers couldn't have done that with Inman weeks ago, as he's been more than ready, but they've apparently decided to slow-track him. He may (and probably will) follow Yovani Gallardo's "track," beginning next season at A+, and, assuming he's successful, a mid-season call-up to AA would be in store. Not quite sure what the Mets have in mind for Guerra, but since he's so young, it wouldn't be very surprising to see him spend all of 2007 at A+.

It's hard to avoid causing a stir when you have as much fire in your belly as I do. And I'd sit back and listen more often if there was enough regular debate around hear to keep me from getting hungry.
I would definitely recommend you sitting back and relaxing just a bit in these forums. You are getting close to crossing the line with me with your remarks to some of the guys in here. Just remember Hybrid, J35J, and the others are here not only to help you but everybody else as well. I enjoy reading your aspects on a player, even though I have not agreed with you on many occasions, just as I enjoy reading Hybrid and Jasons accounts as well. I am not going to let them flame you for thinking Linecum is better then Liriano and I am not going to sit back and allow you to flame them either. I enjoy seeing the discussion in here as there was a time last year, when most of the discussion was between Hybrid and me. But just keep it a discussion about the players.
BTW, I am not saying change your style, just that you might want to tone the disrespective remarks down a bit.
IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA Inman 6.0 3 2 2 1 11 1 1.40
11 k's in 6 innings...wow
Actually, this clearly was Inman's worst start of the season. He had gone longer than any other minor league pitcher without giving up a home run. The home run that he gave up this evening was his first of the season. Inman, as it turns out, is mortal.
P.S. Guerra got rocked in his A+ debut, 2.1 IP/4 hits/4 ER/4 BB/4 K. I think he will make his second (and perhaps final) start for St. Lucie tomorrow.
