I swear that you would disagree with me even if I said that Bonds was the best ever. LOL
You are right. There is a reason that he was a back of the rotation guy. Their names are Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz.
Oh trust me ... when I my mouse is halfway to the Quote button, I never look to see who it is. Unless its playtime.
Don't get me wrong, Schmidt is an excellent pitcher ... right now. But JDH is right, early 30's is a hell of a time to "Break Out" ...
You will find that most players, we'll players that are really going to have a good career anyways, get started in their mid 20's at the latest. There is exception, and Schmidt may be one of them. I will actually be more cautious of next season, than I was him. and he was on my "Maybe list" this draft because of injury risk.
