We spend a lot of our time at FanGraphs focusing on players who have bright futures ahead of them ó or campaigning to have a blocked player finally get a chance in the major leagues. This makes sense, since itís human nature to look for the positives and see the future with optimism. Unfortunately, life doesnít always turn out that way for ballplayers. Many of them flame out at a young age.

Who the hell really has the time to put this much work into an article about Brett Cecil? You gotta respect these guys for literally doing their jobs to the fullest.

I'm starting to think the OP has spent too much time starting this thread.

Lets be honest. Cecil is this years JoJo Reyes. He is a stop gap pitcher that AA hopes to hold down the fort and build value for a trade until a guy in the minors wins it from him.

I'm just hoping his leash if very short.. like 3 starts max or as soon as Dustin is back

Pretty safe to say that Cecil's future doesn't look very bright at this point. Poor velocity, lots of walks...a recipe for disaster.

Dear Sir,

Get your velocity AND location back, or leave my ballclub.

Sincerely,
