Yeah, I can't recall any other young Braves pitchers that have done well that I may have liked over the last few years. They're definitely a team with zero great young pitchers other than Julio Teheran. Randall Delgado is definitely indicative of the overall value young Braves pitchers have provided over the last few years. If only there were other young Braves pitchers I was high on that have panned out considerably, I could throw this stupid, stupid, stupid accusation back in your face. Alas, I guess I just have to sit here and be content that Julio Teheran finally fulfilled the promise that no other young Braves pitchers have fulfilled over the last few years.
I'm glad you agree with me.
I'm a big fan of Alex Wood, even though his mechanics are somewhat unconventional
I know I know. I shouldn't say anything, but Gordon Beckham has actually been red hot since coming off the DL. I'm sure as soon as anybody buys he'll go into the tank, but he's hitting .333 on the season and MI is not very deep.
