(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
Ha! I don't get many questions about straight NP's but I do get a lot of questions about fringe guys. Having covered the Rangers system the last few years (and I preface this by saying he's a great guy with a great story and works his ass off), I got way too many questions about Joey Butler. He's the type who doesn't project to have much of an MLB future but puts up big numbers in Triple-A. Those guys often lead to the questions. (Jason Cole)
