DateQuestionAnswer
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)When do you see Arenado and J.Paxton up respectively? And what can we expect for '12 and '13 production from them?
(Shawn from Dallas)
Paxton comes up first and I love him in Safeco but pitch efficiency is an issue. Arenado turned a lot of heads in the AFL and in camp but I wouldn't expect him up until after the break unless he opens up a giant can of whoopass in the PCL to challenge Ron Kittle's numbers of 1982 (go look them up) (Jason Collette)
