Zito is God wrote:I understand that KC needs the help now...in every department, but this was not needed. Mike Wood has stuff to be a remarkable pitcher, he needed another year (IMO), maybe even 2 to get himself set up for the majors, instead management decided tio go ahead and throw him in the rotation and now hes bieng lit up and bruised emotionally. They are far from bieng in the race anyways, what was the point. Was this the right move by KC? I don't think so.
Wood isnt that huge of a prospect IMO, he is already 26 so a few more years he would be 28? His time is now or next season, sure his AAA numbers are great, but he is never going to be anthing special, I view him like aaron Harang, both were great AAA but can't trasnfer that to the Major league level.
Everyone just went crazy when wood was traded, if Billy Beanne thought he was that great and could replace zito or mulder or hudson he would have kept him. Wood isnt projected to be more then a middle to end of rotation type of guy
