He put up great numbers in the best conference in college sports.  Makes no sense...

Yeah some people just don't have it. Charley Boyce was one of our gutsiest, most successful pitchers, and he never had a chance.

You get drafted mostly on potential.  They'd much rather take a chance on someone who has more velocity (or lefthanded).  That's why Eibner was being considered as a 1st rounder as a pitcher even though he lost his starting job in college.

His top speed is 82. He's crafty but would get killed in Pro ball.

He at one time was the #1 pitcher in Louisiana, had a 92 mph fastball and had MLb interest. He has had two surgeries since then and it killed his speed.
