This whole idea of waiting forever to bring up prospects that could be helping out is ridiculous. Both Sanchez and Judge could have been brought up earlier. Are you telling me an extra year of "seasoning" is what led to their success at the major league level? Hogwash. Get your most talented guys up quickly, let them work with the best managers and coaches in the best facilities. Seems like the Yankees handle many prospects with kid gloves for too long. These guys are competitive men, throw em into the fire, if they have that fragile of a mindset it wont work out anyway.

Theo Epstein is in favor of hitters getting 1000 AB's in the minors. He doesn't want to rush elite prospects up, then send them down like Schwarber. It's probably a good line of thinking. Other teams don't rush up prospects because of future contracts. Theo also did this with Bryant. He probably saved the Cubs $25 mil by not putting Bryant on the opening day roster in 2014. The Yankees and others do it also.
