I was a HUGE Hellickson fan for a long time. In fact, during Greinke trade proposals, he was my favorite primary pitching return (Jordan Zimmermann in Washington a close second).
I'm just terrified he's a white version of Jair Jurrjens.
Jair Jurrjens couldn't bring Hell-Boy's heat.
And at this point the Royals may just have to worry about Eric Hosmer being a white version of Ken Harvey.
