Why I don't read these things. This guy went from the probable rotation to the low minors, and skipped over some pretty spiffy high minors pitchers. Baumann, Lowther and Wells. Not to mention some trade acquisitions. Or Zimmermann.
Knowing crap about the Os I assumed Sheehan had hit the high spots. Previously he was perceptive about the Indians - and our division
where I knew enough to follow what he was talking about. Even though we were the least mentioned potential playoff team on his feed.
The Indians never excited him. It has always been teams moving up that jump started his interest. The saving grace in that he is not a Red Sox/Yankweeny syncopant.
My team's ability has been the transmission belt that has consistently brought along
pitching as established stars either aged or priced themselves out of our market. Pickup pitching has done all right, but rarely what made a difference.
Obviously we have had good players, but for every Brantley Lindor or Ramirez we have had some newbie star pitcher. AND everybody has stars in their regular lineup.
The sort of thing has been noticed by Sheehan.
O's? Perhaps not his strength among the 30 teams.
