Mailbag: Nate Eovaldi Bowman Sterling Autographed card

I just had to do it. 

After watching Nate Eovaldi's last start against the Dodgers, where he pitched 7 solid innings with a flying fastball clocked in the mid-90's, I figured I should add his 2011 Bowman Sterling autographed card to my collection. 

I know he lost that game, but I was impressed.  He looked like a different pitcher out there.  Maybe the opportunity to show off to his old club provided extra motivation, or maybe he was feeling especially great that day. 

I dunno.

All I know is that I suspect we haven't heard the last of him.  I'm not saying that he'll be an ace making the kind of money Zack and Clayton do.  What I am saying is that I figure Eovaldi will have a long career as an end-of-the-rotation starter, at the very least.

And you know what?  That ain't too bad. 

Besides, it was super cheap, so why not?
