But they don't, and that is okay. They do not project to be a 1 or 2, so therefore they are not "front line" quality. Think Gavin Floyd as their ceiling, solid, reliable, good number 3 or 4 on a winning team, and MAYBE a 2 on a BAD team.
There is nothing wrong with the fact they do not profile as a Chris Sale or Jake Peavy Talent.
