Commenting on cards from Cervin' Up Cards (Part #3)

Cervin' Up Cards recently sent me a package of D-Backs. It included these two cards of D-Backs pitching prospect Archie Bradley.

Bradley was the 7th overall pick in the 2011 MLB draft and signed with the D-Backs prior to going to the University of Oklahoma to play quarterback and pitch.

I know I thought Bradley would have already made his debut by now. In AAA Reno this year Bradley is 1 - 4 with a 5.18 ERA, a far cry from 2013 where he was 14 -5 with a 1.84 ERA. 

Only time will tell if Bradley will become a star in the big leagues. I probably shouldn't even worry about it because the D-Backs will probably trade him away before he reaches his full potential. Okay, so maybe I'm just a little bitter about the D-Backs trading away young pitching (Tyler Skaggs, Jarrod Parker, Trevor Bauer, etc.)

Hopefully Bradley will have a great off season and Spring Training and be a part of the D-Backs rotation next season as they look to bounce back from a rough 2014.
