They have to start him and I would keep him in the big leagues. 30 starts of 4 innings is 120 innings. Maybe Smeltzer is his piggyback. Complete opposite

One scouting report suggests he has fastball, curve and slider, all of which are decently developed at this stage. Not so?


He's got a potentially really good changeup too. Maybe they can be creative with innings and such.

MOST important is Cole ... give him a blank check.... 6 years 240Mil?? Have to have an ace to get anywhere in the post season. He and Barrios are a good 1/2 puch. Hopefully Odorizzi will want to stay and do a reasonable contract... 3 year deal? 45 mil? Can fill in the 4/5 spot after that. Odo as a 3 is where we need to be if we are "serious" about getting to the Series.
