I do agree with you about this method, but I do believe Kirk Champion has a good program and grip on our young pitchers. We may have advanced hitters without merit, but I'd like to see pitchers drafted with a higher ceiling than we've taken in the past because of Kirk's development skills. Broadway and McCulloch were low ceiling guys, especially Kyle.
