I can see you don't know to much about the minor leagues. There are two sets of A ball, low A & high A. If you are 18 or 19 in Low A, that is considered pretty young for the league. He was 17/18 for high A and AA, big difference, he was at least 2 years younger then most of the young top prospects there. Once again, he was younger then Upton in AA and Upton was already one of the youngest at AA in quite some time.
I know there are bound to be people who dislike him for one reason or another (hype being one of them), but realize that what he has done isn't normal in the least bit and it hasn't been against his peers.
Also on your "wanting to see him put it by the quickiest bats" don't worry, unless an injury happens, you will get to see it and maybe then give the kid some credit.
