Despite the results in AA & A ball he's got a very good live arm which is something to build on.

Anyone feel like he was better suited for the NFL?

clearly had a bit of the jitters today, but he's got real nice movement on a 96-98 FB. Balls that fast shouldn't move that much. Needs to work on keeping the ball down though. terrible command on breaking ball today. overshot a pitchout too. lots of potential though.

Well, he'll likely make more money in baseball as overall earnings and years played is much, much more. Plus, they probably have the strongest union in the nation...so no.

Absolutely. Howry isn't fooling anyone right now and Lou needs to realize this...

His K:9 since he were 19...

19 5.91 College
20 6.41 College
21 5.62 College
21 6.16 Low A
21 3.27 A
22 3.77 High A
22 5.24 AA
23 5.21 AA
23 9.64 AAA

Really? Sorry but I'm not trusting him. In 285 MiL IP he has 166 K and 114 BB. And he's supposed to get big leaguer's out. I'll pass.

watch it before you knock it. the fastball is legit, its just a matter of learning to use it, which is something he likely never had the time or need to do as a 2-sporter until now. 2nd and 3rd pitch is another story; we'll see if/how those develop if he's going to be SP.

Depends on what role he is in. With his fastball, he could be solid in a relief role right now. As far as a SP in the majors though, his other pitches will have to drastically improve.
