I do. Pitchers go through tough stretches also. Concluding that "he is tired, should be skipped, is ineffective because he needs rest" is reactionary. If he gets knocked around the yard tonight after 3 or 4 innings, then let's talk. But making conclusions after a rough 1st inning is a knee jerk reaction.
Although it is the game thread, so knee jerk reactions are pretty common.
