It doesn't work that way. Kids need to learn their trade. I understand it's not like back in the days where Gary Peters spent five or six years in the minors but my God, a kid can go through four different levels in a season...that's nuts.

It's not nuts, every prospect is different. Some require years in the minors, some require a year, some require less. There's no one proven method for producing a successful player. If there was, everyone would be doing it. If your developmental staff is competent, they should be able to determine if a kid is ready for the next level and move him accordingly.
