In all fairness HOBGOOD was a the number four overall pick, so it's almost impossible to live up to those expectations regardless of his injury problems. Despite the protestations of all of the parties involved in this pick I still see him as having been a budget choice and I'll be happy if he can just contribute as a reliever in the ML.

No one said much regarding the Radar gun question. I agree now Matt Hobgood likely was a budget pick. Though he did make some sense as he was a ground ball machine that might have played up nicely at OPACY. Though it's now a long road the majors I don't care what his role will end up being so long as he lives up to being a quality arm. I think he turns 23 this year. There is still time, he can do it.

Pretty sure it was a slider he was throwing. Ill ask him next time we talk. The HBP in the first inning was actually a cather interference that's what he told me this afternoon.
