Me personally, I hope this year was just an abberation for Egbert. The past 2-3 years he has had really good K/IP numbers, ERA, etc. He's supposed to feature a very good heavy sinker that would play well in the 'Cell. I'm hoping this year just got off on the wrong foot because of injury, and he never recovered from that as well as adjusting to AAA.
I expect him to bounce back greatly in '09 in AAA and be one of our top pitching prospects that can be MLB ready.
