Find me someone with a worse first week in MLB this season. He's 2 for 26 with 10 K. It's not like he's ever produced at this level either. Sure, his numbers will get better, but he's better served with time in AAA.

His first hit was off of Dice-K

Dye is 2/20 with 5 K's and 1 rbi. Not worse, but not much better and Dye won't see a second of time at triple a (barring injury)

But Dye has proven success at the major league level.

Correct, which means that major league players who have already established themselves can do the exact same thing. I'm not saying AAA wouldn't benefit Gordon- it obviously would help. I'm saying that for a rookie who skipped AAA, facing those major league pitchers in the first week of the season makes it even tougher to get in a groove and gain a little confidence. That does not mean it can't happen and he can't turn around and start to get things going.
