Super-Twos

Verducci has an interesting piece today that discusses Hamels/Shields contracts and attributes Hamels much higher aggregate salary in his new contract to the fact that Hamels was called up too early in May to be a super-two. 

Interesting topic as it relates to Rasmus.  What exactly is the economic argument for bringing up Colby before June 1?  With a glut of OF already doesn't it make sense to keep him at AAA for 3 months and then bring him up so he doesn't lose a year of cost control?  What kind of numbers would you need to have aplayer put up to justify breaking camp with him. 

Only difference I can see is that Colby is an everyday player so if he makes roster you might get 60-70 games from him whereas with Hamels they only got two starts.

 

Thoughts?
