Bobby is looking more like he'll reach his floor as a middle inning reliever than his ceiling of a #4 starter. Its a shame we can't get more guys to hit their ceilings.

His ERA is 4.79 but his FIP is 4.19 which indicates he could be pitching better than the results are showing. Win-Loss Record is a horrible statistic to judge a pitcher. He isn't having a horrible year but I probably wouldn't bump him up to Norfolk if that was his final line. Maybe another year at Bowie would be good for him. He's only 22 so it is not like he is old for AA.

The defense in our system is HORRIBLE! It's a crisis that will need to be dealt with aggressively next Spring and is probably skewing the evaluations of all of our pitching prospects.

That being said, Bundy has hit a wall at AA which is not unusual as it's the hardest step up in the minors. As bad as this season has been for him it's actually an improvement over his short stint at AA last year.

W-L record is even worse to judge in the minors.

Ouch 8H, 10R in .2IP last night. I get AA being tough but something is not right here. Bobby is a better pitcher than this.

That kind of line should bring up red flags that something is wrong.
