He's this year's whipping boy.. much like Arroyo was last year.
I agree with you.. he's young, had almost no minor league experience and still learning.. Great BOR guy with upside at a low salary... Seems to be able to stay healthy and pitches QS at a reasonable rate.
Sure, I'd trade him for a decent return, but it's not like he's garbage dragging the team down..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
