    I'm not impressed.

    It's basically a 104 MPH fastball that is travelling 1 MPH faster.

    1 MPH is pretty damn slow.

    How long until he gets a career threatening injury? I say less than a year.

    Yep. Tommy John.

    He'll end up as a submarine off-speed pitcher.

    If he wants to destroy his career he should ask to be traded to the Yankees so Dave Eiland and Brian Cashman can ruin him like they ruined Joba
