Why do people think Severino is any better than Wieters? Defensively sure, but I think Wieters calls a really good game. Neither can hit though, and from what we have seen in the minors, Severino isn't some outstanding batter. Maybe Long can help unlock something in Wieters to make him at least slightly below average. Not sure Severino ever profiles as more than a back up with that bat.
Severino is defensively better. Calling a game is, frankly, not as hard as it's made out to be. Particularly with this rotation.
