my hunch is the team will return rookie C Josh Thole to Triple-A next season… he looked good, and i believe they see him having the potential to be a Paul Lo Duca type, but he needs time in Triple-A where he can catch former major-league pitchers, who have more substantial repertoire than he received in Double-A Cerrone on how he expects the organization to handle Thole This is pretty frustrating, if the organization's holdback is that they feel Thole doesn't have enough experience handling veteran pitchers. Especially considering Thole raked in Double-A all year, and many of us here at AA, myself included, were saying this exact same thing, except in May. Why waste an otherwise useless Triple-A team full of veterans, a team that should be much more about real prospects this year, when it would have been the perfect proving ground for Thole's receiving skills?
