Picking up on Mike Silva’s thought today, I thought I would throw in my two cents on projecting Ivan Nova.
Now, keep in mind, this is totally by eye-ball and 100% subjective. It’s a gut feel thing. And, it’s not based on any sabermetric principles or the like.
But, if I were pushed to offer an opinion on it, on the fly, I would say that, at his best, Nova could have an Edwin Jackson type ceiling; and, at his worst, we’re looking at the next Boof Bonser. And, in the end, what he’ll probably be is somewhere in between that.
How about you? What do you think?
