I could live with a game or two where the other teams players get quality hits but to walk two or three guys consistently wears on you as a fan and can't even fathom what it does to Dusty.
I personally do not get worried until CoCo gives up his first walk, because that is when it really seems to get away from him, especially with none out.
Yes, the walk rate is very troubling. I forget if it was in an article or if they said it during a game, but supposedly CoCo and Price were able to find a flaw in his mechanics that was supposedly causing the lack of control. Hopefully this doesn't take too long to iron out and CoCo can get closer to his previous form we should be good. If he can't step the game up it is nice to see that Masset is getting back to how he was pitching last season so he can't take the mantle up if the need arises.
