This "rushing" argument that people like to pull out of their derriere is getting tiresome. Every prospect is different and they progress at their own rate.
I disagree. Danks has clearly been rushed, and Viciedo's time in Cuba against "major league talent" (your phrasing, certainly not mine) shouldn't count. He was below average in AA and showed serious weaknesses in AAA.
