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.

Some people project him as a back of the rotation starter, although I think he'll end up as a situational reliever. He's succeeded in the minors with a very good sinker, but with a mid 80's fastball, his big league starting prospects are limited.
As for his being called up too soon, what you're seeing is about what you're going to get. It's already his second full year at AAA and he's already established that he's capable of pitching at that level.
