this 2013 season in the minors Gibson has a higher K/9 than Cole does.
Gibson could have some great numbers, or he could get lit up like some rookie pitchers do. but I don't think it's fair to just write him off like he has little chance to be successful.
Perhaps you need to read the Gerrit Cole thread. The board is equally critical of him.
