Owens is for real

Great article over on Pirates Prospects. In it Tim Williams says that those of us who equate Rudy Owens with Zach Duke have our heads up some place really bad (or haven't seen Owens pitch).

I've seen Owens more than anyone not affiliated with the Pirates.  I saw him a lot in 2009 when he was a soft tossing left hander, throwing 88-91 MPH.  I saw him in Altoona in the early part of the 2010 season, when he was carrying his success over to the higher levels.  I saw him later in the year when he saw his velocity increase to 90-93 MPH, absolutely dominating opposing hitters.  Today I saw him throwing 91-93 MPH, and continuing his domination.

Maybe it's time to get excited.
