I think that's exactly it. The manager quite rightfully wants to put the brakes on some of the high expectations being put on this kid. As fan base, we are starving for anything positive to take away from this awful season. We'd all like to see Garcia show up and rake, but it's probably a little unfair to expect that from him at this stage of his development. Robin will do what he can to keep expectations in line with what is fair and reasonable.
