    Dylan Bundy Is Pretty Good, But...

    Dylan Bundy, the Oriole's first round pick last year in the draft, is doing pretty awesome, if you haven't heard. Seriously, just look at this line: 19 years old, 30.0 innings, 5 hits, 2 runs (0 earned), 19 years old, 2 walks, 40 (!!!) strikeouts, 0.00 ERA, .233 WHIP, and did I mention he's only 19 years old? There's just one question: why is he still in single A?

    No, seriously; I know it's pretty cool to see a player post those numbers. But, at the same time, that's usually a good sign that the player isn't actually being challenged. Is dominating hitters at A really that much better for his development than doing reasonably well against AA batters? Why not call him up? You'll get a better idea of where he is in his rise to the majors. I would imagine keeping him in A is only slowing him down at this point.
