Re: Do you like Williams any better?
I think Dave Williams could surprise us. If he can keep the ball down and tighten the rotation on his curve, he could be the same guy who had the best road ERA last year. He knows how to pitch, he just has to be mechanically perfect. He may have suffered early on from new coaching.
Sometimes it's hard to watch a guy throw like he does and believe he could ever get big leaguers out. Jamie Moyer bounced around as several teams' fifth starter until he reached Seattle.
With Claussen, I think the Reds should package him soon for an experienced starter. I really don't think his style is conducive to GAB. Usually, teams trading away decent pitching expect to receive some promising pitching in return. Claussen is young, cheap, and promising. I'm just afraid he will give up a boatload of homers this year, lose confidence, and be lost to mankind forever. So I'd package him right now before his stats get too ugly and his confidence gets dashed.
