I believe Getz went 0-2 but made a great stop in the field.

Richard pitched just the first and took the loss, but from what I saw he threw pretty well.

Clayton was just selected for the U.S. Olympic Team. That's the good news. The bad news is that he will spend a month in China during the penant race.

How fast does MB throw?
You never know...if this kid can throw strikes and hit a lot of corners, he can pitch in the big leagues.

Very rarely hits 90. Mostly in the 86-89 range.

Glad Tragg brought up Buehrle, because this description is Mark Buehrle in a nutshell. Not saying he will succeed like Buehrle, but location matters more than anything.

I saw Broadway pitch a couple of times in college and that's what he was...he didn't throw hard but had great control. I was suprised he was picked so early, but he was advanced and dominated college hitters. But, hitting corners sufficiently to fool college hitters is a lot different than hitting the corners sufficiently to fool upper level professionals - you must be more precise and use both sides with equal proficiency. Broadway, just from his stats, doesn't look like he's improved since college.
It's not just the corners - you have to consistently throw right at the bottom part of the knee in MLB.
But if you can do it, your in.
