Of course, I'm frustrated that most of our high scoring games have involved him like you. He needs to figure out the adjustment. But I see absolutely no evidence of attitude issues from the limited evidence I have to go on, like dugout shots, the way he acts on the mound. I mean, you don't hear him blaming folks.
Tonight, I probably would have gotten thrown out when the ump's not giving me the inside corner on nice backup fastballs that I need to keep from happening exactly what did happen. He kept his cool and couldn't keep them off his 4 seamer, which they just sat on. It was obviously one of those nights, whatever the reason, but he's been involved in too many of them. But, if he's not hurt, I'm leaning towards he's gonna go all R.A. Dickey at some point this season. Hopefully its during an important time in the season.
