He's the fifth starter, for goodness sakes.
I can't remember a 5th starter of ANY MLB TEAM being hyped.
If that is hype, what do you call the RIDICULOUS HYPE that constantly surrounds your boy in Louisville with the plus 6.00 e.r.a. that is allowing batters to hit over .320 against him? The hype on that guy goes beyond normal. He doesn't deserve it.
Face the facts..........if Dickerson catches that ball, Owings gets out of the inning with the score still tied at 2. He probably gives one more inning, goes 5 innings, gives up 2 runs, and they take him out. He pitched fine. The defense let him down. In the end, he was still only credited 2 EARNED RUNS.
The lack of common sense in this thread astounds me.
Edit: And one more thing..................considering our 5th starters combined to produce a plus 7.00 e.r.a. last year.............most intelligent fans were looking forward to a 5th starter who could possibly keep the e.r.a. under 5.00.
