Or maybe they are just waiting for Wynns to get healthy.

Or, they want all the prospects to see just how bad this team is without them, so none of them blames themselves for the big suck.

1. For what? He's not fetching a great prospect. Maybe they'll stick with him and hope he can improve specific things rather than start over with another flyer.

2. Agree to disagree. It's not about this year, it's about building the best team we can in a few years, and like it or not, the system allows for teams to manage assets in a way that attempts to maximize value over time. You can say they're humans all you want, or that fans deserve better this year (and you'd be right about both) but Angelos hired a data guy to do exactly this.

3. Technically, nothing, but why does he HAVE to work on this stuff in the majors? You're acting like he cannot get better at AAA. That's false.

I don't think it is possible to learn to hit major league pitching hitting in the minors.

Obviously some guys can hit ML pitching despite being in the minors.  Sisco doesn't appear to be in the camp.

And who cares if he doesn't bring back a great prospect, if you have decided he's not a ML player and you have enough depth take what you can get and move on.

Interesting take.

Poor Mullins.

But you're arguing dishonestly.

This idea that you cannot learn to hit major league pitching in the minors is false, but phrased the only way you can to make your point. Can you learn to better hit fastballs or better off speed pitches at AAA? Sure. Can you make mechanical adjustments in your swing based on different coaches' approaches in AAA? Sure. Can that stuff make you a better all around hitter and better prepare you for the majors, of course. 

My first point was that it's possible that they don't think Sisco is good enough to be in the majors. I did not say that they necessarily think he's not good enough to EVER be a good major league player. If it's what I said, sending him to AAA for hitting or defense work is very defensible.
