I mean, the personal services deal starts regardless of when he retires.

I don't think so.
If anything we probably overestimate the speed at which a prospect becomes a star because so many of players moved so quickly: Soto and Harper are obvious, but even guys like Turner and Rendon were pretty much stars from the moment they came on board.
I think it is just that losing isn’t fun and people look for someone to blame. A few years ago, it was Zim for not doing enough ST.
I think there is a pretty good case for having Robles up, though I would probably keep him down.
The case for having Robles up is simple. We don’t care about winning games now, we care about winning games next year. Robles development is going to be much more helpful in that regard than Yadi.
That said, I think the latter point is much better. Two weeks probably isn’t enough time to really fix the problems. If he’s hitting well and doing the things he needs to do at AAA, I think it’s reasonable to get him back to Washington for a series or two before the end of the season as encouragement. We want Lane Thomas to keep getting reps. Probably wouldn’t hurt for Soto to get more rest while playing regularly this September too.

Victor Robles has struggled through 159 games, basically a one full season.
And yet so many are willing to pretend that he’s dead. He has already been a productive MLB player, excelled in the minor leagues, and he’s only 24.
