He doesn't have a great fastball at all(87-89 MPH), but still manages to get guys out. 9-1 record in Buffalo and only loss came in a doubleheader where he lost 2-1(7 innings). I took a flyer on him in my AL-Only league. I don't think he'll be returning to Buffalo anytime soon.


From what I've heard, he sounds like a Maddux type pitcher. Not much speed but locates the ball great and changes speeds well.


The last guy I remember that they said that about was Zack Grienke and the verdict is still out on him.


Well, for one, Sowers doesn't play for the horrible Royals. He plays for the Indians which means he'll get his share of run support. And Zack Grienke got forced into a horrible situation...at least I think so. They may have ruined that kid.


Well obviously the situation is different because they play for two totally different teams. I made that statement comparing the pitchers, not the teams that they play for.

I think the best comparison for Sowers this year is to look at Duke last year, he might keep some teams off balance the first time thru the league

why the hell is yahoo not making him available?
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Looks like Sowers will be skipped in the rotation for this week. His next start will be monday against the Yankees.

You can tell this from one outing against a pretty good Reds offense? :-t
