Wouldn't that have been exactly what my last statement was, that if you go by this belief you can to say everyone has front-line potential.

In terms of why I believe they don't, I enjoy following the minors and scouting reports, and while I like their arms, I personally think at this point they project more as power relievers than starters. They are still being stretched out and haven't had the body of work (or the physical maturation yet) to show if the stuff tool can be sharp in the 7th, 8th, 9th etc.
