(Nicholas from MIN)
|No but I know a handful of guys that had to face him or catch him. They were thankful when it was over. Batters talk about his filth and the catcher talked about how Burdi's fastball just wrecked his thumb trying to catch it. (Ryan Parker)|
|2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Considering the fact that most would argue that a #3/4 type starter is more valuable than a shutdown closer, what is the argument for Nick Burdi being on the list ahead of young arms like Joe Ross,Michael Feliz and Edwin Diaz?
Is there a big difference between the arms I listed and pitchers like Kyle Freeland and Grant Holmes? |
(Brandon from AZ)
|Probability (though I'd maybe quibble with the statement that a #4 starter is more valuable with a true shutdown reliever). Burdi's likelihood of being a shutdown closer is much greater than the probability that Ross/Feliz/Diaz become mid-rotation arms. And he's closer, from a developmental standpoint, as well. Upside/probability combo favors both Freeland/Holmes over the trio you mentioned, and I'd be willing to bet Freeland/Holmes could both handle themselves in a big league pen right now, which I wouldn't necessarily say with the same conviction for Ross/Feliz/Diaz.

(Mayo from Rochester, MN)
|I believe so. I know Nick is on that wavelength as well. (Top 101 Chat)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
