If a guy's fastball sits in the low 90s, touches the mid-90s and moves, that's plenty good enough to earn the power pitcher label. He was supposed to have a real nice slider to go with it, too. Chick was one of those guys -- two years ago -- that both the scouts and the stats-line readers liked. We haven't seen that pitcher yet. A combination of over-promotion and a sore arm can do that.
