You asked for stats, FlightRick gave you a great breakdown earlier, and you didn't respond. I think most here realize the days when Owings would have been the NUMBER ONE STARTER a few years ago, back when Jimmy Haynes Her Way, and Danny "dig your own" Graves were anchoring the rotation. [B]Complaining about him being the 5th starter is kind of like complaining about the mud on your tires while your car is on fire
That says it all.
Its all part of the puzzle.
One hitter isnt going to magically turn this team into a world series contender.
There's no reason owings should be getting a full year as our 5th starter with the numbers and talent that he obviously lacks. I called this from the first time i saw him throw. The kid doesnt have what it takes. plain and simple. I think one of the big reasons he's still up here is because this teams bats are so bad. That his bat off the bench and bat in the games he starts is actually one of the better ones on the team. And thats sad.
