Even more of a reason to stay away from him until he shows you something that would sway you differently.

That's a nice KC Royals logo you have there. How's Greinke treating you?

LOL, first thing, Greinke was never "suicidal". Second, it took him more than a year to get over his issues.

I don't think you, as Greinke's doctor, should be divulging those secrets.

Good comparison. I mean clearly Ian Snell was spoken of in the same prospect vein as Zack Greinke :-° Give it a rest dude. I appologize that we don't want to take your gut feeling as gospel and bump Ian Snell into our collective top 25 pitchers. If you want to project Ian Snell for a sub 2.50 ERA and over 200 K's, do it. Now I'll leave you alone in the world of make believe and re-join reality... a wonderful place, you should join us.

I'm pretty sure J35J didn't kick your dog he just pointed out tangible evidence as to some of Snell's struggles. Lord knows it isn't possible at all that his depression was an effect of his poor pitching and not vice versa. If you want to bump him up your board on a "gut feeling," by all means do. If others don't, I'm fairly sure they shouldn't get snarky remarks spewn back upon them. I personally have no intention of moving Snell up my draft board until I see tangible evidence that he's returned to 2007 form.


You thought his reply was "snarky"?? Seems like you're the one who's overly sensitive and snarky here, B-Chad.

I am leery to take Gallardo, Webb, or Bedard due to injury concerns. I love Slowey as a sleeper if he falls out of the top-50 pitchers altogether.


valuable.

I appologize for jumping in, but I didn't appreciate to see snoody remarks made at one of the trully good people of the cafe (J35J). He puts in a great deal of his time to put together his Excel Spreadsheets for those around here, and runs leagues such as the cafeholics challenge, etc. All that said, I will re-iterate that while Snell may have a somewhat intriguing skillset, to simply write off his poor performance the last few years as being a result of his depression seems overly optimistic. I want to see his velocity back up, and him able to throw strikes.

Gio Gonzalez and Wade LeBlanc make the list but no Ricky Romero?
