Yeah - thatd be great - more me first, no-one-can-tell-me-what-to-do, brash, loudmouth, egotistical, and outspoken players in baseball! Thatd be awesome! Hopefully, it can turn into the NBA in no time. With all those great rolemodels running around for my kids to see, I barely have to do any parenting at all.
Hes a fluke pitcher who relies heavily on a trick delivery. Once opposition gets comfortable to seeing him again, he'll get shelled again.
The only regret I have is that I didnt draft him late. Once he strings together a good month - something I believe he will do - I would deal him for more than his drafted value. He has a lot of trade value because of his name recognition right now - and the idea that he will start off hot until batters get used to seeing him.
