Slowey is going to murder people this year.

Correction: Slowey has potential to do well. He also has the risk of continuing to be a very hittable 4.40 ERA pitcher. His reasonable expected upside for 2010 isn't much higher than what I have as expected from Zambrano. So they have similar upside potentials, but Slowey has a much lower floor and a lower expected performance.

No, multiple accounts of homicide.

:-D Well, at least we agree about some things. I think Slowey's going to be fantastic this year too. I'll him over Big Z every time.

Maybe, I know I'm not buying. He's perpetually overrated, much like the team he plays for.

Hopefully it does not turn out you are actually buying high? :-[ (Intentional double entendre).
