Max Scherzer signs the the Diamondbacks @ the deadline

I watched him in College WS last year and honestly wasn't that impressed. Throws heat and a decent breaking ball but fell apart later in the game.

$4M is a lot for someone who already had elbow issues and may end up in the pen.

unfortunately, I'm jumping on his bandwagon, drafted him in my 28 teams league...my other choice was Brett Anderson and his scouting report worries me and Anderson is at least 3 years out anyway.

Not bad for your second career professional start. :>

Another great outing today:

In his 5 IP today -- 9 K's, 2 BB

Total numbers so far --17 innings, 30 K's, 2 walks, 5 hits. 0.53 ERA. 0.41 WHIP.

Get him ASAP...he's still under the radar...but not for long.

After the game he was told he's moving up to Double-A. Looks like the Dbacks might have a decent chance at calling him up at the end of the year. :D

looks like that deadline signing, though expensive, might pay off for the D-Backs.

Yeah, they're very lucky though, because they just used this year's top pick on Parker, a HS arm who may need a decent amount of time to develop. If they hadn't been able to sign Scherzer they would have been without a big time arm close to reaching the majors. That's a problem for them more than a lot of teams because of their lack of young arms in the rotation. Davis and Hernandez are both fairly young, but neither has the type of stuff that you figure will allow them to remain successful in a Unit-esque sort of way. The top arms they have in Triple-A, Nippert and Petit, are decent, but neither possesses front of the rotation potential. Brett Anderson was also called up with Scherzer, but I don't see him being quite as good as Parker or Scherzer.

Sorry for the small rant, but I just wanted to emphasize how important Scherzer's signing really was. I'm really looking forward to the Dbacks actually having a high-profile prospect that's a pitcher for a change. :D

I still believe Dana Eveland can be an okay to good pitcher in the bigs, any update on his **** you finger? :D

I'm quite happy to see Scherzer doing so well and my personal farm team is lacking impact arms.

Doug and Livan? I wouldn't consider 32 very young for a pro athlete. Especially Livan with all the miles he has on that arm.
