Lester and/or Scherzer (sp) will both be looked over by Theo thoroughly. Just depends what their demands are. But we have one of the lowest payrolls so no restrictions on Theo at all.

Lester isn't going to Boston. They don't want to pay him. If a deal was gonna be made, it would have been made already.

Lester is close to Epstein and a few others in Chicago. They're willing to give him a nice contract.

Lester really likes Brian Cashman. Yankees will also give him good money.

Physical tools don't matter if you don't have the vision/hand eye quordination.

I've seen 90 MPH fastball go right down the middle and he will completely whiff.


he's not useless, he's just terrible to watch.

He's like cespedes without all the entertainment value.

Mike Olt may one day fall into the same category. Hope that's a fair comparison.

Max is 1st at 9-0 but on road

 

Strasburg 8-0

 

Capuano 6-1

 

 

 

 

Chris Sale hasn't given up an RBI to a Left-Hander in over a year wow

Terrible fastball control from Strasburg.
post #26186 of 77346
I don't care how good his home record is, Strasburg will never be elite mean.gif

He's either good or BAD....like there's no inbetween with this dude


Maybe I'm overreacting in the moment, idk.
post #26187 of 77346
He was way overhyped. People act like top prospects can't be busts nowadays. With that said I would take him over Lincecum. That guy is just in shambles.

Why did Jake Peavy get tossed?
