        MGW,,,,,,,,,,,while I actually believe Tillman has the potential to be a lower degree Ace he still has a way to go,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I also like Gonzalez plenty but I believe he does not have the over all body strength to be an Ace , he certainly has the ability to be a number two guy along with Tillman,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,still hunting for that Ace that Angelos should have picked up when he saw this young crop developing , I think he missed the boat……………………
