He commands four pitches and knows how to use them. How much further can he leverage those strengths? That's kind of the point.... for those expecting him to morph, where is this change in true talent going to come from?
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
