No, I understand. I was higher on Randy than many, based on his 7BB/40K and 1.07 ERA last season in 50 AA innings.

Big time bubble guy. Doesn't appear to have a big league future with this club, but would be a likely Rule 5 draftee.

Fastball command. He has a good slider, but had to learn to set it up.

I'm nearly positive he wasn't on that LLWS roster (but Chris Garia was!), but he's kinda interesting.

Nah, he's good with differet types of pitches, but I gotta say, I've never seen a slugger miss more pitches in the zone than Joey does.

Anyone who can eat up innings. The team likes the top of the rotation, but is desperate for a proven MLBer to take the ball every 5 days at the back.

Good spot. That's a funny/strange little thing they do. They're obviously very close. Hanser is the mayor of every club he's on.

I think he's flown under the radar a bit because he'll still have rocky outings.

Nope, he touched 97 twice that night on the scouts guns as well.
