I think Danny Graves can be blamed for the downfall of Danny Graves.
Guys move from starter to reliever (and back again) all the time in this game. As mentioned before, Graves was starting to fail more as a closer when he agreed to try his hand at starting.
flyer gave a great list of how Danny did not help himself:
1) he let himself fall into poor shape(drinking and partying didn't help)
2) it was compounded by making him a starter
3) fatigue kills mechanics(in any sport)
4) he developed bad habits
5) unable to fix his mechanics
