I'll give you 10 to 1.
It's funny cuz it's true.

Where have you gone Kyle "99 mph" Kane?
Maybe Kris Honel can showcase his "91-94" heat...
Felix Diaz was supposed to feature a fastball that topped out at mid-90's.

Kip Wells (only once he got away from Nardi and joined the Pirates) and Danny Wright are the only ones whose velocity did not disappoint - both topped out at 97 at some point.

That said, if Mac can eventually throw low-to-mid-90's through a tea cup, and then complement that with a very good curve and a decent change....He'll be lights out in the bigs.
