95 is the new 85. If your fastball is 95, straight as a string, and over the heart of the plate, you get Sunday's results. No movement + poor location = useless pitcher.

Before you tell me "he's pitching if he's healthy" for the 100th time, I know that. Everyone understands that. But we don't have to be happy about it. If we could trade him for a box of Double Bubble and be rid of his contract, I'd say do it. Same for Mesoraco. Contracts like that the rebuild.
