DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)He's not exactly young, and his delivery is, well, unorthodox, but Matthew Bowman a.k.a. Princecum keeps chugging along up the ranks of the Mets organization. What's the BP take on him right now? Can he stick in a rotation? (Side question: Is "Princecum" the worst nickname in the minor leagues?)
(Jay from PHX)
I saw Bowman with Binghamton earlier this year and wasn't terribly enamored with him. I don't see the raw stuff holding up at the Major League level. In the start I saw, he got by more on mixing his arsenal and locating, rather than pure stuff, and it didn't help that he was facing a pretty poor lineup. I think he's a reliever at the highest level, and not an impact or high leverage one at that.

And yes, that nickname is quite terrible for a variety of reasons. (Mark Anderson)
