While what you say may be true (1 pitch recognition away), I think most people in this thread aren't looking to "give up" on him, but rather cash in while you still can. After a couple years, not only will BP's salary dramatically increase, but let's say he never actually learns to lay off that one pitch (IMO, very likely). Then how do things look compared to what they could be?
