Kenny’s not so excited

Kenny Williams, are you excited seeing prospects in action?:

“No. Because the more they play, the more they’re in there, that means the more we have fallen back. So, I don’t care if they get an at-bat or throw a pitch.  Well, you know when I’d like to see them play? When we’re way ahead. I would love giving young guys an opportunity to get their Major League shoes on for the first time and get that adrenaline out because then when you need them for the next year, they’ve got that experience to draw from.  They’ve got an understanding of just how fast the Major League game is. I keep trying to tell people, we try to develop people in the Minor Leagues to be prepared for this level, but you can’t. Until you step out on the field and you realize, ‘Oh my God. Those two-hoppers that I used to get to very quickly defensively are now through the infield and into the outfield,’ or every pitch is a little bit sharper or a little bit quicker. It’s a different game. So anytime you can do that, great. But maybe when we’re way up we’ll give them an opportunity to play, but not now.”
