Agreed. Up to 98 for Contreras? Who knew? And yes, Obispo was dynamite toward the end of the season--which makes me wonder if they might continue to start him.
My choice of relievers, though, is still Drew Hayes. He struggled a bit after skipping High-A, but settled in and seems to have what it takes. I find it interesting that, two years ago at Dayton, Sharky Rogers pitched well but looked to be behind Hayes, Blaine Howell and perhaps Daniel Wolford in the bullpen pecking order. And from there, he became one of the top starters in the system this year.
