Damn, look at this:(Career Minor Stats)

Homer Bailey(21 years old):
317.2 IP, 3.43 ERA, 347 K's, 1.26 WHIP

Johnny Cueto(21 years old):
348.1 IP, 3.28 ERA, 358 K's, 1.10 WHIP

Edinson Volquez(24 years old):
547 IP, 3.72 ERA, 560 K's, 1.20 WHIP

Matt Maloney(23 years old):
376.1 IP, 2.97 ERA, 393 K's, 1.18 WHIP

Man, that is a awesome group of young pitchers. The only thing that concerns me with Maloney is that he gives up his fair share of homers.

Volquez in my mind is a high risk, high reward guy just like Hamilton is. Volquez has the stuff to be a #1 or #2 but he could also turn into a Daniel Cabrera.

Hopefully Wayne decides to keep these guys around and build a team with these young pitchers as well as Harang.

All we need is LEAGUE AVERAGE INNINGS and lots of them...

I don't think Maloney's stuff, including his rather soft fastball, serve him well for the majors. IMO, he could bring in a solid BOR type in a trade, more dependable than the Livan Hernandez or Jon Lieber's of the world would be.

Maloney and Perhaps Wood at the back end of Bailey, Volquez and Cueto could easily end up being one of if not the best rotation in baseball in 3-4 yrs time. I don't expect them all to pan out but if they did, it would be like a whole new BRM! :thumbup:
