So what's the deal with Richard? Legit high end prospect.
Seems like he was sitting in A ball and just shot up all of a sudden.

Everything I've read on him says he's another Heath Philips, in which case, he's a 5th starter at best.

Richard is a lefty.

Are you insinuating that 5th starters aren't important?

Team USA better start hitting; Richard is still on the hook for the loss.

I found the blurb that mentioned this and I don't really get their reasoning. Pigeonholing a guy with good control as another Heath Phillips is foolish.

Fair enough, I just saw an article comparing him to Heath Philips because they have similar make up.

Heath never threw the ball in the low to mid nineties.
