    Bear in mind I was never an Estrada fan even when he was getting good results for those 2 seasons. I generally don't like command/control guys either given they have such a small margin of error from being half decent to being complete trash as we saw this year.

    However, given the jays situation on the mound right now and need for a retool, having the #5 spot filled by a league minimum earning guy from in house wouldn't be the worse situation to have.

    Oh. I understand you basically need warm bodies right now. I'm just looking from a long term piece standpoint.

    Fair enough and Rowley is very unlikely to be any type of long term piece so I think we're on the same page here

    What I love about crafty over velo is that 1. they tend to last longer career-wise, and 2. have fewer injuries.

    I don't have the science to back myself up, I just know it's true.

    I don't think you're going to find many people who agree with you. I think it actually tends to be the opposite, where hard throwers learn to be crafty vs crafty guys having their stuff play into their mid 30's.

    I hope you get to be the GM of the Yanks or Red Sox at some point.

    Doc wasn't really a fireballer, he sat at 91.2(vFA) for his career. I get what you're saying, just isn't a great example to me.

    Doc threw mostly cutters by the time the systems were able to differentiate. When he first came up, he was throwing upper 90's.

    Ya. I remember Doc being 92-95 a lot when he was in Toronto. Was touching 98 before Mel Queen rebuilt him.
