i think its pretty clear he's mastered wichita. come on royals move him up to AAA already. though its not going to happen i'd like to see him added to the 40man and in kc in sept, but i dont get letting him sit at AA all year...
While I don't mind them taking their time with him this is definitely true. The only reason I can think of to keep him at AA is because they want to keep Wichita's team competitive.
What's the point in promoting Gordon to AAA right now? They have like 5 games left, while Wichita has a legit chance at winning the Texas League Championship. Seems like a no-brainer to keep him in AA the rest of this year and start him in AAA or KC next year.
