Eovaldi Poised For Big Things In 2012

Jason Grey of ESPN.com's fantasy baseball column predicts Dodger Nathan Eovaldi to be a bright spot in next year's rotation:

14. Nathan Eovaldi, SP, Dodgers: Eovaldi has shown enough in his big league stint this season to project some success from him next year as he cheaply fills one of the Dodgers' rotation holes. He'll sit in the mid-90s with his fastball and touch as high as 98 when he reaches back for something extra, and his slider is a quality pitch he can locate, with the bite to get swings and misses. He has the capability to throw more strikes than he has in his short stint in the big leagues, and he's going to need to throw his changeup more to help keep more hitters off balance, but he could be quietly effective next season.

I'm hoping for more loud effectiveness...

Eovaldi could be very good. I still am shocked they brought him up this year. But enough of that its time for some Carling Cup football! COYS!

Is Carling Cup the one with the Western Bacon Cheeseburgers?
