That's where his value lies. I can say with 100% confidence that at least one of those youngsters is going to be a complete disaster. I'm glad we're not commited to putting all 4 in the rotation. I hope DanO can bring in another vet starting pitcher.. because if we only have to use two of those youngster candidates, that would be good. We'd have a chance for 2 of them to be passable next year.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
