DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm watching Anthony Swarzak on my television right now. He seems good enough, but not terribly interesting. What do I like? What should I be worried about?
(Minneapolitan from Chicago)
I think that's a great scouting report for him: Good, but not terribly interesting. I think he'll be a fine, usable starting pitcher for a while. (Kevin Goldstein)
