Christmas Present

For your Christmas Eve enjoyment, here is my current thinking about enigmatic Rangers prospect Edison Volquez.

What do you guys think? I keep going back and forth on this one between Grade B and Grade B+. The one time I saw him in person, he was terrible. But everyone else raves about him. Sabermetrically, his numbers in the Texas League are better than they look on the surface once context is considered, although as stated their not quite in the elite class. He is also a power/groundball pitcher, which should help his margin of error.

So, is it Grade B or B+? Take the poll in the comments! Note that my grading scale is very tough, and that Grade B+ is a very big compliment coming from me.
