Another first pick bust???

Post by 262run » Tue Dec 05, 2017 5:52 pm

Dave Robertson was picked first in this last draft by Cleveland, and I was quite happy to have him. Images of an A+/A+ starter danced through my head! Now halfway into the first season my 17 year old wunderkind is only 1-30 in improves!!!
If this persists, it will have tragic consequences for the future of the franchise. :?: :x

He might just be one of those slow learners. He'll be a stud when he's 30....

Could be a "bust in the minors" guy. I'd let him start the rest of the season and see what happens.

I thought of the "Minors Bust" type of player, but had reservations about putting a 17 year old in the majors. At this point, he is 1 for 33 in conversions, so you are right, it can't hurt to try it! If Bob Feller can do it, maybe Robertson can??? :idea:

So now, at age 17 and 364 days, Robertson goes 8 innings for the victory in his first major league game. He may be the youngest pitcher in league history to get a win, though I have no idea how to determine such a statistic. Wecome to the BIGS!
