I think it was pretty clear that Acevedo wrote his ticket out of town with these comments he made after being demoted to AAA. Simpson seems like a good bet to turn into something useful. He strikes out more than 10 per 9 IP, and he's getting out of Colorado's system which is usually a good career move. I had much higher hopes for Jose than this, but he just never did take it to the next level.
