I here you in many ways, but I honestly think better he start here than come up randomly midway through. The grind of the regular season from the get go is a very different grind than one felt when you're a random call up at mid-season because someones injured. You get excited to be here and play above where you're at and when the struggles come, you flounder. Happens too often. I think it's fine to let guys develop, but if they're special and you're going to bring them up, do it from the get go or leave them.
For the record, I wasn't saying that was my opinion. The statement made was that the poster was surprised some people were negative to him being on the roster, and I gave what I believe is the reason for some of the negativity.
My personal opinion is somewhere in the middle. I think Holland is one of the best ever in developing young talent, and as frustrating as it is to some that he loves to "let them develop", nobody can deny his track record. Sometimes a guy comes in who doesn't need to develop in the minors, and if Larkin is one of those guys I am absolutely thrilled.
