I absolutely agree that they were rushed.

I don't think we have rushed either of those guys. IMO, if we were rushing them they would be at AAA, not Bowie.

I think they HAVE learned. Rick Peterson is here for a reason.

It should be CARVED IN STONE and placed on the desk of ANYONE who makes player development decisions.

IMO that will only happen because of injuries. I'm not worried about Gausman, but Bundy's control issues cause me some concern.
