    I really dont think bowden will be that special he will not be an ace i think he could be a good 2 or 3 on a normal team but not higher

    LOL, also wondering this. If you haven't seen him pitch a handful of times, how can someone come to this conclusion? The guy has sick stuff and they weren't willing to trade him for a Catcher.

    I still and always have liked Bowden better than Buchholz against all others opinions. I like mentally tough pitchers he has that odd arm angle , he is bulldog. Buchholz to me seems to be fragile. Neither have conventional arm angles.

    I said this once, I'll say it again, he HAS three ML ready pitches right now , two plus pitches. Name a pitcher this side of Dicek that throws more than three. I'm ok with him in a set up role to start with ...but he is doing just fine , thank you , as a starter.

    I don't get the ceiling thing , not yet anyway. He has dominated every level given enough time. Go look......
    I'd say eventually he is a solid starter but I'm not smart enough to slot him with such a small sample. Same with Buchholz.
    Bowden is younger too. Much more powerful build. As for longevity who knows. I just like his mental makeup. I'd also love to see a batter run out to the mound, now tell me you feel the same with Buchholz. Luckily Buchholz runs real fast...

    I do get the feeling that, if charged by a batter, Buchholz would look kinda wussy. Maybe something like this:

    Or...if things are really weird, this:

    Why do you think that though? What are you basing that opinion on? What is the critical difference that you see between Buchholz and Bowden?

    I'm asking honestly, not sarcastically.
