Back in the day...
Some days, I sit and wish I were a kid again. That has to be what Gavin Floyd's thinking these days. Not so long ago he was a top-notch prospect and heralded by baseball aficionados. He was livin' large in the minors, scoffing at the lesser beings surrounding him. Now he is on MLB version of death row. He has be given his shot, a prolonged one at that, and completely failed. I personally do not want to see the Headcase Known as Gavin Floyd back with the Phillies until he pitches lights out for Scranton...so basically I'm saying I never want to see him pitch for the Phillies again, because I have ZERO confidence that he'll put numbers anywhere close to respectable in Triple AAA.
Carson's prediction for Floyd's next 10 starts at Scranton: 2-6 record, 53 ip, 26 bb, 28 k, 5.75 era, 1.75 whip. In laymen's terms: washed up prospect!
Corey's prediction: 4-3, 4.44 era, 1.54whip, 42k, 32bb [basically, this isn't going to get solved in the next ten games.]
