with 100 pitches per inning (=> a big drop on the radar gun) , multiple times through the order and sometimes problems to find the strike zone with his slider heŽll have a hard time to get the players out..
I just donŽt see him succeeding as a starter... I would be very happy if IŽm wrong.. but I doubt it => if they use as they have in the past heŽs to expensive without making a big impact, use him more often from the pen or try to trade him
I can understand that most user want to see him as starter, but I canŽt think heŽll be effective..
