In regards to Pacheco, don't write him off. Last year he was probably one of the best few pitchers in the org and it wasn't Bham related. This year he's really been hampered with injuries and his fastball is nowhere near as sharp/crisp as it was last year. He could be a one hit wonder, but last season he had fantastic stuff.
