Matt Buschmann’s Yellow Brick Road: Will the Minor League Strikeout King Ever Reach the Majors?

Among active pitchers who’ve never been to the majors, Buschmann is the reigning strikeout leader, but his is no Crash Davis (or Mike Hessman) story, even though much of it has happened in Durham. Those guys made it to The Show. “I have a story that is uniquely mine,” Buschmann says.

Interesting article about him. Sometimes it doesn't make sense why some guys get chance after chance and others guys never get that call. I always thought if I were a big league GM, I'd give those chances to guys like Buschmann. I've seen guys like this get spurned time and time again for washups who had their chance before, so why not give them a shot if they are pitching well. Sometimes you luck into a hot guy for a few weeks, but at the end of the day, you know you made another young man's dream come true, even if it was only for a few games.

BTW, if his velocity dropped all the way down to 80 MPH, he's hurt.
