A very interesting read (http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/prospects/?p=705) talking about the hardest throwing starting pitchers of 2007 and a little history lesson of the hardest throwing starting pitchers of 2002.

Poreda comes in a tie for second having being gunned at 100 mph.

Small sample size and obviously he's a ways away, but it's intersting that Poreda's among the hardest throwers, yet has one of the lowest BB/9. That bodes well if he can stay healthy and maintain that type of control.

That and development of a decent off-speed pitch. I wouldn't hate it, but I wouldn't be nearly as excited if he took that heat and control to the pen.
