DateQuestionAnswer
2012-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming they all stay healthy, which new Astros' pitching prospect has the best chance of becoming an impact starting pitcher in the Majors; Colton Cain, Joe Musgrove or Kevin Comer?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Of those three, I like Musgrove's upside the most but will go with Cain here because he'll be in Double-A next year. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a tougher A level rotation than Gerrit Cole, Jameson Taillon, Colton Cain? They are stronger than many AA rotations.
(Chris from Cincinnati)
That's nasty. Two Texans in one rotation? Also, some guy named Gerrit Cole? That's not fair to other teams. I can't wait to see that team in action. Nasty. (Jason Parks)
