Yeah, I hope so and think he's better suited to the pen as well. I really do think, however, that we're going to see him knocked around a bit before the Rays lose patience and call up Price (or someone else to keep his innings down). Hope I'm wrong though.
You know, for some reason I never realized just how big he is. I knew he was big, but this guy's pushing 300 pounds at 6'9". Is he the biggest pitcher in the bigs right now?
