He basically would of been a big time/elite prospect that everyone would be waiting for. Instead he HAS to be on the majors, where until now due to injuries he gets barely any playing time.
If your talking about potential, Pena has more then Guillen. Pena's power can rival anyones in the majors right now, it's just a matter of him getting playing time and learning the strike zone.
I dont know which side is to blame for the major league contract and no/little minor league seasoning, but I hat when players do that.
For every Adrian Beltre that comes straight up as its obvious that any level they play at to get their learning curves will eventually lead to a breakout on account of their immense, there is a talent wasted like Todd Van Poppel who could have used the minor league experience.
I wish the best for him, but wht didnt he recieve minor league seasoning?
