  16. Why Pat Venditte Should Actually Make The Opening Day RosterRead the original story

    Sunday Jan 25 | Athletics Nation

    By and large, the switch-pitching Pat Venditte is a feel-good story. He's the kind of player you adopt as a fan favorite and act like you want him on the team, until you start worrying about the standings and admit that "No, he's probably not one of the best 25 choices -- it's just that he's soooooo cool!" I have never seen Venditte pitch, so all I have to go on at the moment are his pedigree and his minor league stats , and when I actually watch him throw to hitters I will have a better sense of how often I think he can get big leaguers out.
