Here is a nice article on our new pitcher. There’s SOME promise….not much, but….

rowand, right now, is just filler, but just like Pittcat said, he has years remaining before he has to be put on the 40 man.  Lorin is wayyyyyyyyyyyy behind on the depth charts if he came back.

if rowand can re-discover what made him a high draft pick just 2 years ago, then its a bonus
