When you call up a rookie you don't want to put too much pressure on him. It's best to take it a bit slow and see how he responds. But the way the media and the Mets are fawning for him to be called up almost as if he's the answer to their season.
Can you show me where he's being hyped as the savior? I haven't seen any of that. People are clamoring for the hot prospect, but I haven't seen anyone tie the Mets' fortunes this season to his promotion.
