DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Corbin for real? Who does he compare most to you from the past? John Tudor?
(sparky29 from Tempe)
2 HRs in 62 innings is real. I like him a lot. Don't really know who to comp him to just yet (Jason Collette)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)When they did the Tommy John surgery on Jaime Garcia a couple of years ago, whose left arm did they graft on, Warren Spahn's or John Tudor's? Put more prosaically, how long does this tantalizing left-handed unhittability last?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Well, Warren Spahn is dead, but I'm pretty sure arms are not part of the organ donor program. :) Garcia is going to progress to the mean at some point but I really believe he is going to be a top-shelf starter for many years to come. He's got pretty good stuff and a good idea of what to do with it. (John Perrotto)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, I recall in my youth a year that John Tudor was virtually unhittable. Since he didn't throw 90+ and was a soft tosser, would that be a good example of somebody reaching their absolute ceiling? Can you think of any other soft tossers who had such dominant years and is it harder now to succeed with below average velocity? Thanks
(Chris from Northern Virginia)
I don't think it's any harder. There are no absolutes in baseball, there will always be exceptions, and Tudor is one of them, and we'll certainly have more. Finding them is nearly impossible. (Kevin Goldstein)
