    He’s a college closer that was rushed to the big leagues by a GM trying to save his job.

    He’s a head case.

    He probably had Gullett tinkering with this and tinkering with that. Just give the kid a philosophy and let him pitch. Good Grief! We 33-52! We’re not going to the Series!

    Yeah, this is starting to worry me. He had generally pitched well early, but is now getting lit up nearly every team on the field. I worry we may have lost him. He certainly looked like he had stuff when he came up. With all these situations, I often wonder if we aren’t going to find arm problems pretty soon. It is a logical possibility.

    Something to take a look at are his home and away splits are really really weird. He has a home ERA of 1.60 (45 IP) and a road ERA of 7.31 (28.1 IP).
    I can’t explain it, but his other rate stats do similar things.
