Scott Olsen Crystal Ball

New, comment

My SBN colleague, John Sickles at Minor League Ball, does this from time to time where he makes a guess as to how a player's career will turnout.  In this post he looks at Scott Olsen, now John is a very smart guy and he could be right, but I'm a little more optimistic about young Mr. Olsen's career than he is.

First off, I think the win total is too low.  My guess is that it will be closer to 200.  Also, I hope Scott has an agent who isn't dumb enough to allow him to pitch in that career robbing ballpark in Arlington.  The other thing is, that if his mechanics can be kept in check and if he isn't abused, (big ifs, granted) I'm not sure an injury season will happen.

Anyway, give it a look and see what you think.
