I do not think you can compare Batistsa with anyone but Batista. He is/was not a great SP and how he handles the role as closer is anyone's guess. He could be decent or he could be awful. Trying to predict that you mayas well break outthe Magic-8 ball imo.
Yea but is that not what late round picks are? Taking a guy (which I admit I liked Batista last year as a starter in the draft) and looking at his numbers and history and trying to prdict or guess what he may do.
There are always guys who bust out every season. I am buy no means predicting Batista is the next Graves or even Gagne. But I am saying for a 3 closer he could be a gem or better.
