My opinion: Had Contreras come to the states at age 19, 2005-2006 would have been the tail end of a 15 year run of dominance and we'd be discussing which cap he'd be wearing on his Cooperstown plaque. Complete speculation that can never be substantiated of course, and it's entirely possible MLB's kids glove approach to handling pitchers may have ruined him if that were the case. Anyway, the dude was a beast when he had it going.
