The guy could throw complete games like it's nothing.

He could throw 150+ pitches without fatigue. He breaks the rules of PAP^3!

If this guy pulled that ambidextrous stuff on me, I'd cut him. Just saying. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I'm guessing he's not all that great of a pitcher? I mean I would think that if he was really good he would be most useful as a starter

scouting report
RHP
high 80s fastball
below average curve, slider, change

LHP
low 80s fastball
below average slurvy pitch

I'm rooting for him because it's going to be cool to watch in the majors, but I doubt he makes it.

I guess I don't get why he isnt a starter since logically he could throw more pitches

Because his stuff is mediocre.
