He just hasnít been able to put it all together yet to be considered an ace . And he will be 27 in about 2 months and will be 28 by the time he is a full time starter again with no limitations . And nowhere did I say his career is over or set in stone . I have only been saying is that he is not a proven ace.
    But his first World Series start went a little differently. 2.1 IP 7 ER.

Across the league how many pitchers in recent memory other than Madbum have excelled immediately in the playoffs? Bieber is 25, coming off a CY young yr and got shelled in the playoffs, it happens to young pitchers, even the ones that end up being Aces
    Some people can't understand what it is to have learning experience because they refuse to have one for themselves.

    He was so young in the 2017 playoffs and it was his first time there so I give him a pass.

    He would be the perfect #2 behind Cole.

    With that being said, his future is unknown. 2+ years of injuries. 2 years left on his contract. He really canít be counted on as a rotation savior.
    If he fully returns, which there is no reason he won't and provided his shoulder issue was truly a minor issue and rooted in the elbow issue, he absolutely has the physical stuff to be an ace. He's yet to show the mental aspect.. He looks the part. He looks like he has the killer instinct when he gets into a tight spot but the he'd and the body go different directions.
    If he can get his head right, he will be a TORP guy for sure and he and Cole will be a very nice 1-2 punch.

    Just because something is stated in DECEMBER doesn't mean things can't change 4 months from now. Until we see how he pitches, you've proven NOTHING.

    What limited intellect, manure farmers often fail to understand is simple language and word definitions. They fail to comprehend the word upgrade. They fail to comprehend that even in a season when a pitcher has limitations, he can still be an improvement and upgrade to the rotation and in it. He can still be a better pitcher than the ones previously or currently there.

    They also don't really understand the word "prove" or "fact". It's easy to ignore those definitions when you live like a coward.


    Both Sevy and German, if they pitch to ability, are upgrades to the rotation behind Cole. (That should really confuse them. How can two guys be behind Cole? My goodness, the brain must be melting)
    Even if German and or Sevy pitch 80-90 innings, if they pitches better than who was there, its is by definition and upgrade to the rotation.
    Will there contribution be greater than Pax, Happ, Monty, Lasanga, King...? If they pitch to ability, absolutely. If they don't? We don't know. It could still be an upgrade and it may not be one.

    even with a healthy sevy and german are the yanks good enough to win it all next year.. not a chance.. can they make it to the world series 50/50 but winning it all the only thing that matters...
