I think the fastballs that were 90-92 were two-seemers, so thats a pretty good velocity....His change was nasty and his curve looked sharp too. His control wasn't spectacular, but he made good pitches when he needed too....
I just heard he could be traded to the CHI SOX. What does this do to his value? Sure, he might be in line for a few more wins, but it is a hitters park and he'll be facing better offenses.
I'm not quite sure about Schmidt facing better offenses, even though he has to face the DH. He would be in the division that has the Tigers, the Royals, and the Indians (who can't churn out runs at times it seems). The Twins aren't exactly a stronger lineup than one he would face in the NL west. After all, he was on one of the worse offensive teams over there.
I hope he gets more value, I just traded Ensberg and Hudson for Schmidt and Soriano.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
