    For Stubbs - High Draft pick, swing raised eyebrows, has trouble w/ pitch recognition & has a long swing at times. But has monstrous power, above average speed and an average arm

    For Valaika - Looked like a 1st round talent in college before injury, great contact hitter, good pitch recognition, quick hands, Gap power but not a home run hitter. Lack of range & strong arm will mean a move to 3B later.
    Stubbs' hitting report sounds like Drew Henson.

    Since I have never have said anything bad about Homer in the first place, I think you are offbase.......

    My view with Homer is his overall stuff isn't what it is made out to be, in a very Josh Beckett way(similiar builds and deliveries). Though that doesn't mean he doesn't have upper rotation ability, he does, but at this time while he struggles developing his changeup, he will get exposed in the majors because his fastball doesn't have the type of movement needed to succeed with only 2 pitches. He really needs that changeup to become a good pitch to be the ace we all hope him to be.

    Ravin has a similiar build and delivery to Bailey. His changeup may even be more developed than Homer's right now, big steal if he can stay healthy.

    Ravin has an 89-91 MPH FB that had touched 94 in HS
    Am I wrong or did I read somewhere that he was touching 96MPH this year? Ravin's delivery is wierd though. I'm very far from anything close to an expert, but both Ravin and Roenicke look like they could throw way harder if they didn't have panzy deliveries.

    You may have read that Superdude, I havent seen that though. I hope you did read that right though, a few extra MPH never hurt anyone (as long as it was acheived without overthrowing). Do you remember where you read that at, I would like to take a look at it, see if maybe its got some other stuff in there as well.

    I really have no idea where I got that. I just remember hearing it somewhere.
