Re: Richie Gardner
I agree with Fargo. I've seen Richie pitch both before and after the surgery. He never was a "blow them away" guy. But he keeps the ball in the park, doesn't walk guys, and for whatever reason (location, variety of stuff, speed changes, etc.) hitters seldom get good wood on his stuff.
I think he's going to do very well at AAA and you're going to see him in Cincy next year. Since he's not on 40 man roster you may not see him in Sep.
