No. I don’t think this year’s SSS is all that meaningful, nor was last year’s. I’m just giving my impressions of how he looked, not trying to draw any conclusions about what it means for the future. And I wish we had a bigger sample to discuss, but we don’t.
The way I look at it, you have TOR starters and aces. I think what you are describing is an ace.
Means won’t be an ace...he isn’t the elite of the elite.
But he can be a TOR guy depending on a few factors.
I do think it’s fair to question whether he can throw 200 innings. I think 170-185 innings is more realistic.
