My "storming" is more like "drizzling" or "fogging".

That might work.  Levine and Trost scare easily.

I mentioned the other day that I thought he was getting stale at A ball. Looks like he was. Funny thing is that he probably just bought himself the rest of the year at High-A ball just because the stooges want to make a point.

And Montero and Mason Williams  That's mostly frustration.

the Yankees do seems to be a little slow in promoting players.

He was hitting .266 with an OPS in the 700s so it's not like he was forcing the issue.  I don't follow other team's farm systems in any way so I don't know if this sort of thing goes on elsewhere, but it does seem like the Yankees' farm does have a fair number of kids who are prone to mouthing off or needing the be disciplined.  Maybe it is, as another poster suggested, simply frustration as top prospects are probably far too used to being told how great they are.

Don't know all the facts yet but would guess there is somthing more than simply "voicing displeasure about not being promted".  Let's hope the Yankee Brass aren't that thin skinned!

A lot slow, Ray. if Machado, Correa, Harper etc. were in the Yankees system they'd still all be at AAA.

Rob there's a world of kids "bored" at school because they're not challenged and do poorly or underachieve as a result.  I hear you about his #'s but a talent like that needs to be playing at a higher level.
