But there is one difference. All of us knew that Graves was simply cooked at that point, mentally and physically. Elizardo is a young pitcher who may be tipping his pitches or may just be going through some inconsistency as a young, but still developing pitcher.
Either way, I find the theory that Elizardo is tipping his pitches more believeable than the theory that Graves was doing the same.
