So in his first 3 AFL starts he seems to get better with each one. Yesterday was a prime example on he can become against lessor talent. He pitched 3.2 hitless innings with 4 K's and an unearned run. His stuff is consistently in the upper 90s with solid secondary stuff to boot. When I looked up his stats I spent last night trying to find a pitcher to compare him to. I find it. His name is Tim Lincecum. If you can look past his lanky frame and his crazy pitching motion his stats are certainly comparable.
The only thing to be concerned about would be when he will make his Pirates debut. I think the conservative route would be ASB 2013 (as to prevent the Pirates from paying him insane Super 2 Arb salary of $10+ million). But what if somehow the Pirates get off to that same good start as last year. Do you bring up when all the other pitchers eventually wear down again.
Do you agree or disagree with the Tim Lincecum comparison with a ASB 2013 arrival?
