From his latest AQA thread:
Q: Buying on Sale? What do you make of Chris Sale? Does he have the ability to develop into a #2 type starter, or is his funky delivery best utilized in the bullpen?
A: I’ll buy on Sale. I want to see the walks come down, but overall you have to be very impressed with how well he’s done. I prefer him in Triple-A next year working as a starter.
Q: What are the odds Brent Morel is a serviceable starting 3B next year?
A: If they let him play he can be Joe Randa. Will probably need some adjustment time at first.
BTW, Sickels’ prediction for Justin Smoak‘s career slash line: .279/.379/.490 [.869 OPS]. I’d predict a higher slugging percentage.
