I don't know where the trophy ceremony is when you win the first person to say someone is a bust contest, but it seems to be a coveted trophy. There are plenty of guys who take a little longer to develop. Look at Toronto and Baustista and Encarnacion. You would have given up on them long before they flourished. Ryan Howard really broke out at age 26, when he was Viciedo's age, he was in AA. To think everyone develops at the same rate is insane. Maybe Viciedo doesn't get much better, but to proclaim it now is beyond laughable.
