DateQuestionAnswer
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)which of these pitchers do you feel will be a factor in a starting rotation for the long run. How would you rate them? Nick Pivetta, Phi¬†SP,Austin Pruitt, TB Brandon Woodruff,Mark Leiter Jr., Phi. thank you for all your time you put into these news letters, question and answers. OB1
(OB1 from Tampa)
I must confess that I just don't know Leiter very well. I would rank the other three: Pivetta, Woodruff, Pruitt. Wish the Rays would stop teaching guys such momentum-stopping timing mechanisms. Pruitt looks like a man feeling the water in the hot tub before climbing in on every pitch, and I think it hurts more than it helps. (Matthew Trueblood)
