Wang was 25, not 20-21.
I just hope he doesn't get hurt.
I understand the age difference, but it sounds like Hughes is ready for The Show. Bonderman was thrown out there when he was 20. I think that if the guy is ready, it shouldn't matter how old he is. And as far as getting hurt, that could just as easily happen in Scranton as it could in the Bronx, so that is definitely not a reason to keep from throwing him out there.
