Nice to see he is essentially an overhyped kenley card

You also didn't see his 99.

Were people expecting his postseason to have an offspeed?

Why throw shade at a card you've never used or faced? Never forget SS Romo from 19. Velocity and repertoire aren't everything.

Room had the best Repertoire in the game last year and every single one of his pitches were drastically different speeds. That’s what made him good. If Mo’s 99 card has 3 fastballs that are essentially the same speed he won’t be good. They would need to give him a 75 mph change up for it to be a good card online

I strongly disagree. I used the sinker/cutter/4SFB combo nearly exclusively. I think everyone's underestimating just how tough it can be to differentiate between a slider and a cutter, as well.
