Very true, but it's not like he stunk up the joint. If he had, it certainly would be worse to display suckitude against scrubs and minor leaguers.
We already know that when he's on, he's effective. And he seems to be much improved since getting the shoulder back in shape. Remember last year he started lights out, until the shoulder inflammation.
Because his woes seemed to be due to that, and the fact that he's had a decent spring, I would think they'd want to keep him, even if only in AAA.
