"Personally, I think you guys expect too much out of these kids around here. You guys expect Fergie Jenkins right now," Baker said. "I don't know what kind of players you guys have seen, but most places, these kids would be in Double-A right now, Triple-A maybe.

"Wait a couple years when they're mid-age and they're playing with more the guys their own age," Baker added. "Then you've got to judge their level of progress."

Dusty translation: So get used to me playing my veterans.
