I think this thread illustrates why it's sometimes a bit boring in the ORG nowadays. Just a bit too much moderation, not so much from the moderators just from posters in general trying to break up a potential scrap. This thread was entertaining and informative and everyone came out the other end just fine. I actually read every post. When I 1st came to this site I was fairly clueless and some might argue I still am (that's ok) but I have no doubt I have learned alot about baseball and alot about myself and most of that came from scrapping in the ORG and being allowed to have some smart posters beat some of that ignorance out of me, (well most of it).
As for the point of the thread I didn't know much about Cingrani before (haven't been following the minors much for some time now) but now I have a pretty good idea. Any guy that has 2 good pitches, the feel for a 3rd, control, command, the ability to make adjustments both large & small and a realistic overview of himself has a pretty good chance to get where he is going. I like his odds of being a starter (and a solid one at that) to be better than 50/50 for those reasons.
