Too much excitement for Mulvey

Over at The Star Ledger they profile Mets pitching prospect Kevin Mulvey. "After a slow start, he closed with victories in five of his last seven decisions for the B-Mets. He finished with an 11-10 record and a 3.32 ERA for a last-place team that ended the season 20 games under .500. Along the way, he was selected to pitch in The Futures Game in San Francisco. Mulvey throws all four of his pitches fastball, slider, curve, changeup -- for strikes, as evidenced by his strikeout-to-walk ratio (110-43) in 151 2/3 innings of work last season with Binghamton. Mulvey allowed just four home runs last season."

I have said it many times but I am not very high on Kevin Mulvey. He is projected to be either a 3 or 4 starter. He started off last season pitching pretty poorly. Scouts were saying he had many flaws and he often had very flat pitches. All I am saying is do not get to excited about Mulvey just yet. He has pitched pretty well in the Minors but things happen and he could end up just dissapointing us and becoming a long reliver. So keep an eye out for Mulvey but dont get overly excited about him.

Kevin Mulvey has been compared to Steve Trachsel and Orel Hershiser.

Now if Mulvey turns out to be more like Trachsel then no there is nothing to get excited about, but he he's more like Hershiser then we have a very good pitching prospect.
