DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)I love me some tall pitchers, Kenn Kasparek is 6'10 and with AA Altoona, major leaguer?
(Andrew from Pittsburgh)
Mark Anderson again: "I don't see the stuff to succeed in the big leagues. Even with the leverage he generates from his extreme height, he's mostly 88-91 and I've seen a couple 92s out of him in the past. The breaking ball doesn't offer much either. At nearly 28 years old and without a premium pitch, I don't see it working out at the MLB level."

Which makes me sad, because I enjoy giant pitchers. I should've called this chat Ben Lindbergh ft. Mark Anderson. Mark has a chat scheduled for September 27th, by the way, so you can come back then and cut out the middleman. (Ben Lindbergh)
