The truth is that Stanzi regressed last year and I think that was due to poor coaching. I guess we will see.
I agree completely with this take.
As I stated, I didn't like Stanzi as a prospect, so my comments about him have never wavered from this stance. That said, I believe he should have seen playing time during '12 because it was a lost season. Thus, there was no risk and nothing but potential upside, should Stanzi emerge/surprise/etc.
