No one has ever heard of him, the poor guy doesn't even have a name yet!

Why I have a feeling this Vallimont kid is another Paddawan

Meh, it seems pretty even honestly. Romo has been outpitching his actual performance (5.11 xFIP) and no one knew who Vallimont was until 15 minutes ago. The PTBNL won't be anyone we've ever heard of either. 

Not fair to say no one has ever heard of him.  Plenty of us on here follow the minor league system. Not saying Vallimont is the next Paddack or Castillo but still ... We know who he is.  Don't care about Romo.  He was only for one purpose and this was it.  Hope Lewin pans out.  We need all the bats we can get.

The Marlins traded from a position of strength to fill a position of need.

 

It's lit'rally what teams should do in a rebuild. Even in Vallimont turns into an decent big league pitcher, we have SEVERAL other guys who are either further ahead in their development or have much more upside. 

 

This is NOT a Paddack/Castillo situation. Vallimont will probably be a solid major leaguer, but he's a 3rd starter at best, more likely a strong 4.
