There are of course examples too where it doesn't work.
I'll take that out of him any day of the week...
And for him to not be in a top 100 list is absurd... A top 100 list to me is players who are going to play in the majors and have a 5 to 10 year career. Right now Cingrani is going to be in the majors within 2 years and will play for a while either as a setup guy or a 3/4 starter....
