He did get hurt, but he should be fully recovered from Tommy John by now. The guy just has terrible command and I would be surprised if that ever changes. I would love to be wrong, believe me. '
And it's not just about this game, so don't suggest this is some overreaction based on two innings. It's about everything I've seen out of this guy, save the one good season he had. Heck, he was so bad with the Rangers they had to send him all the way down to low-A to get himself straightened out. The guy is a head case and I will be surprised if he's ever consistently a good MLB pitcher. And we traded a flat out stud to get him. Depressing! (Just being honest here. I'm sure there are those that agree and disagree. That's fine. That's what message boards are for.)
