...and his stuff is better for long term success.
ummm, no it's not. Rosenthal's stuff is sick AND better than Skaggs'. The only thing Skaggs has on Rosenthal is that Skaggs is a LHP.
I don't see many agreeing with you on this. Go check out John Sickels grades on the two pitchers. Granted he isn't the all knowing but he knows his stuff. He grades Skaggs as and A- and Rosenthal as a B. That is a pretty big difference in grade. Rosenthal can always get that grade up but he still has a long way to go.
