He had a nice day and will be better than Seo and Fossum, but he won't be a starter for us next year, but will be a nice option in the pen.

Mainly because he is not really that good. He will serve a much better purpose for us as the LOOGY then as a starter. I would probably rank him as the 12th best arm we have in the minors, and even though yesterday was awesome, I don't think he will have that type of luck with a 85 mph fastball the rest of the year.

I personally love Howell

if you can strike out alot of guys ((which he has always been able to do)) with only an 85-87 MPH Fastball than that means your offspeed stuff is insane

I agree that he wont be a starter next year. If a hitter can figure out his offspeed stuff then hes done and if he keeps going through the opposing lineup 2 times it will happen so I like him more as a change of pace lefty from the bullpen to make room to our future 09 rotation which should look something like

Kazmir
Shields
Sonanstine
Niemann
Price

and then everyone else in the BP
