I don't agree with this at all. Beckham and Hudson earned their way to the majors. Poreda spent significant time in the minors working his way up, Danks hasn't even made his way to the majors yet and Viciedo spent a year and a half in the minors plus his time playing with major league talent in Cuba. Sale doesn't seem to be having any problems rising up either.

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.
