Prospect Retrospective: Rob Dibble

Check out this excellent piece on Rob Dibble, written by John Sickels:

Doing a Prospect Retrospective on Rob Dibble might seem a bit strange. But I have a reason. I did a brief interview with Dibble and Kevin Kennedy yesterday on XM Satellite radio, and Rob mentioned that he visits occasionally here at Minorleagueball. That got me thinking about when Dibble first came up to the Majors back in the late 80s. For nostalgia purposes, I went back and looked at his career numbers. I noticed that Dibble's minor league career is rather interesting, and illustrates a point I've tried to make occasionally about the relationship between velocity, pitching success, and strikeouts.

Very interesting entry, and it shows how long it can take for things to "click" for some prospects.
