At some point solely by numbers, 93 is power and 92 is not, I suppose. I have no idea where the line is.
It's not just velocity, it's also about command, usage, angle, movement, all sorts of stuff. I don't think anybody here is claiming that Quintana is a fireball guy like Aroldis Chapman, we're just suggesting the idea that he's a soft-tossing junkballer magician is a bit untrue, as well.
