Paul (Saint Paul): Hi Jim, Happy New Year! If the Mariner's let Brandon Morrow develop (as a starter, in the minors), how high is his ceiling?
Jim Callis: (2:22 PM ET ) I think he's going to be better off in the long run as a reliever. I don't think he has the third pitch or polish to make the same impact in the rotation, and he's always been more effective as a reliever.
I somehow wonder if this board doesn't have a mancrush on Morrow. Nice tools, plus arm, but realistically, is he any better than any other middle relief prospect as long as Putz is in Seattle with his sub 2.5 era and .95 whip???
