    Your crazy. Big E no doubt could be a top B pitcher. By far one of the best in this area.

  2. Good guy says:

    Someone should scoop this guy up quick. Great pitcher and can get it done at the plate!

  3. RR says:

    Gotta say this dude deserves a shot, works hard at his craft and produces at the plate. Would be a valuable asset if giving the opportunity.
