Rushing Players

Several times yesterday, Jeremy Foster made the point on the sports talk station in town that the Astros have a funny habit of speaking about "rushing players to the majors" whenever a young pitcher doesn't perform. He repeatedly said he was certain that the Astros would be making that claim with regard to Tim Redding, a guy with a lot of talent who just hasn't been able to get it together in the majors.

Score one for Jeremy. This appeared in the Chron today:

"Tim is a classic example of a kid pushed to the big leagues before he was ready," general manager Gerry Hunsicker said. "Now, we're scrambling."
