I mean, seriously. KLaw had him at 99 last night, when he struck out fifteen in seven innings. On the year, he’s at 34.1 IP, 21 H, 7 R, 7 BB, 74 K. That’s a 19.40 Kper9 and a 10.57 K/BB. Remember when I said Price and Prior and all of them were better prospects? I take it back. This kid is as real as it gets, and is making a case to be the greatest amateur pitcher of all time. Insanity.
In other San Diego area news, Padres’ reliever Mark Worrell will miss the season with Tommy John surgery. The only reason I’m mentioning this is because I’ve been looking for an excuse to link to this video of him pitching for a few weeks now. How can you not laugh at that delivery?
