BUY/SELL Analysis


Cecil may pitch at four levels in '08

Cecil may pitch at four levels in '08

Brett Cecil headlined the impressive 2007 draft by the Toronto Blue Jays that included the likes of J.P Arencibia, Justin Jackson, Kevin Ahrens, John Tolisano, and Eric Eiland. The LHP Cecil has progressed quickly through the minor leagues dominating at each level with a 92-94 MPH fastball and devastating slider that reaches 87 MPH.  One of Cecil’s strengths is his ability to induce ground ball outs with his heavy sinker.  This season, his groundout to flyout ratio is an impressive 2.27, which will be key for pitching at the launch pad formerly known as the Skydome.  Cecil has an autographed first year card (#’ed to 500) in the 2007 Donruss Elite Extra set which sells at $7.50-10.00 each.  He also hase various jersey and short print cards in the set that can be had for $1-2 each.


Market Advice: Cecil was just promoted to AAA Syracuse last night and, with the uncertain future of A.J. Burnett as a Blue Jay, there is a distinct possibility that Cecil can earn the ultimate promotion this season.  At his sub-$10 prices, and limited products on the market, Cecil is a steal.  BUY a few autos as he may be in the middle of next year’s rotation!
