Not really. I'm fine with a junker. I just know she has to be very fine in terms of control compared to the faster pitcher. All else being even I'll take the speed sure but everything is never even. Who's tougher menally. Who will go multiple innings and games without fading. Who's parents are more supportive. And the list goes on. but it really comes down to, who gets outs. You want Maddux or Ryan? Ideally you want both.
