Jeff Ellis: Crowe has been one of my favorites, but he is also pretty much unsignable. If not for injury I can't see him getting out of round two and he could have been a round one guy. He reminds me of Masterson with his size and sinking fastball. He has a low/mid 90's fastball, but his curve might be his best pitch. He is more or less developed already. He doesn't have all star upside, but would be a high school kid that moves quickly and could surprise some people. Looks like a mid rotation starter in time. I wanted him with the third round pick, but only question is can they sign him.
