Milton does not start out great and then falter. He's a constant, rolling disaster who eventually ends up as a catastrophe. He's not Tropical Depression Erica. He's Category 3 Hurricane Erica, and he's heading toward land.
If I may ask what those splits were last year when I felt he was a much better pitcher than the year before???...
But I understand your perspective...
