A 22 year old top prospect who has made 3 career starts in the MLB is nothing more than a AAAA pitcher?

Most people on this forum do not know what a AAAA player is... Already had this discussion in depth and many veteran posters are confused on what a AAAA player even is.  People hear some trendy new term and they want to try and use it every chance they get even if it's using it through misconception.

There's a reason why the Nationals were willing to trade him....

 

He already had one TJ out of highschool.  Maybe they saw the writing on the wall?  The fantasy baseball world was blown away by how much The Nats gave up for Eaton.  But if Giolito was damaged goods it makes a whole hell of a lot more sense.  Not saying he is but it certainly leaves a lot of room to speculate.

Yeah man, damn... Myself and the other like 6 or 7 people, plus Baseball Reference and Wiki, must be wrong and you're right. Thanks.

Indeed.  I mean Jesus Aguilar went from you guys calling him a AAA hitter to hitting 3 hole in an MLB lineup.... But yeah.... Ya'll were wrong about what a AAAA player is.  Common misconception though.

Get back to me about him in another month. That .636BABIP is legit.

If they truly are rebuilding him from the ground up, this kinda makes sense. Might be one of those situations where the numbers aren't 100% telling the story.

 

I feel like I read this exact same analysis with respect to Giolito (not from you, but in general) a year ago.
