His next two outings should be intersting. He gets to go Sat against the Giants whom he seems to do very well against in a pitchers park in SF. He follows that up with a return to SD to pitch against his former team in no question a pitchers park. I don't expect 9 inning 13 K performances and I hope we all allow this kid to continue to improve and mature.
We were saying this about Bruce when he first came up and he's essentially the same 'month on, month off' type of hitter. Never get too excited about one good or one bad start.
