How long do they give Brandon Wood? He has zero big league success and he's the starting 3rd baseman. Thank god we have Maicer Izturis. Just because you're one of minor leagues' perennial all stars doesn't mean you belong on the Angel's starting lineup. I admit that after I saw the steep cost of resigning Chone Figgins I forced myself to be optimistic about Brandon Wood's future big league career. I thought, well, they never have given him a very long singular stint in the big leagues yet. However, after watching his performance thus far, though only 2 games this season, and considering his prior stints in the majors, I wonder if he has the coconuts to handle the pressure of starting in the majors for the Angels. Maybe he prefers being "the man" in Salt Lake or Rancho Cucamonga. I'm afraid I see Brandon Wood being replaced sooner than later by the more than capable Maicer Izturis and having his future with the Angel's organization drastically reconsidered. It won't be anything like last year when Howie Kendrick was sent down to AAA ball and bounced back motivated and focused as ever. If Brandon Wood can't do it now then when. How long can one top prospect spend in the minors.
