Is Pudge Crazy?

Pudge said he thinks Justin Verlander should be a relief pitcher. That could be the worst idea I've ever heard in my life. How could someone who has caught in the majors for 15 years think something so ridiculous? Verlander is the #1 pitching prospect in baseball. He's been unstoppable as a starter in the minors. Developing your own top of the rotation talent is the most important thing a MLB franchise can do. I'm in shock.

First of all, Verlander's command with his secondary pitches is outstanding for somebody that has pitched 3 months in pro ball. His K/BB rates at Lakeland and Erie are off the charts. Pudge might have seen him a bit nervous and not locating his curve the other night, but the guys has 3 major league ready pitches right now. His fastball is dominant. His curve is probably one of the best in the minors. His change is improving and not too shabby.

Pudge is so far off the mark it isn't funny.
