After all the parity talk throughout the season, it turns out the two best teams from the AFC and NFC are playing for all the NFL rubles in the City by the Bay.

Since coming out of LSU in 2012, Kevin Gausman has been one of the more interesting Orioles pitching prospects. To me, he has been more likely to succeed than his contemporaries, Dylan Bundy and Hunter Harvey, as I could see Gausman's development hitting a fork in the road, and he dominates in either development path. He throws hard, which could translate to a dominant starter, i.e. a right-handed, shorter Randy Johnson, or a flame-throwing reliever, your poor man's Aroldis Chapman. After seeing some of his performances in the 2015 season, digesting them, thinking about them and how they are going to translate into the 2016 season, I believe he can be at least a mid-range starter this year, and with time, develop into a top of the line starter.
