I've been watching these two pitch tonight.

What a great pitchers duel. After 5 innings... No runs allowed... 3 hits combined.

A couple Real Deal Arms in my opinion.

Two guys who really don't have a breaking pitch, but they can make it work. With all the arm injuries as we assume everyone needs to learn a curve or slider at 10 years old, seeing two guys who can do it with location and change of speed is a positive thing, I think.

They'll probably develop a spinner down the line and hitters will probably be grateful for that.

I've seen Wacha drop some decent curves in the past but it's his Change that makes him extremely good.

Nice velocity change with a healthy drop to it.

Cingrani... I can't figure out but his 90MPH fastball looks 99 and he moves it around brilliantly.

Been watching this Paxton kid with Seattle as well. Seattle might be happy with him.

There is so many good young pitchers.
