Do you people even know how to read? The 2nd guest says nothing about a curve being easy to throw if you can throw 95 MPH. Guest #2 is talking about HITTING a ball.
Guest #1 was also talking about HITTING the ball, not pitching.
FANTSTUD makes the assertion that Affeldt is worth owning because he can throw 95 MPH. 'Guest #1' claims he can HIT a ball travelling at 95 MPH.
Ondeckb is the first to mis-interpret what 'Guest 1' says. Brendo and Jack in a Box follow suit.
When 'Guest #2' tries to point out the error, and states if you can hit a 95 MPH, hitting a slower pitch isn't exactly out of the question, even if it is moving a bit more from 12 to 6.
Ajgdrummer7 actually gets it, and adds at 16 years old he too can hit a ball travelling at 95 MPH.
Clearly, the original statement of grabbing Affeldt because he can throw 95 MPH is not solid advice to build on.
JDogg is about the only one making a solid contribution to the thread, pointing out his problems he needs to overcome.
Predicting 18-6 with 200 K's because he can throw 95 MPH is not much help. There is no info there. Just an owner who likely over-values Affeldt.
He's not a bad guy to take a chance on later in a draft, but these guys trying to claim he will be a stud are just blowing gas out of their asses.
