    How about when hes in the majors he pitches once a month and then gets yanked if he gives up a hit. Pitchers get rusty pretty easily.

    getting to the big leagues isnt fair or easy, if you wanna stay, you go out and make the decision to send you down difficult

    Fisher does it to himself. He does not get yanked at all....he gets himself in trouble by not throwing strikes or getting two outs and then nibbling and messing around.

    I am not buying any excuses for him at all....he is not ready mentally....that is for sure.

    He pitched like once every 6 days when he was up with the MLB team.

    Im guessing every pitcher is going to look a little shaky if they were given the same kind of treatment. Not saying hes a stud and future closer, but you cant do that to a pitcher and expect amazing results.

    well he better get used to it, he isnt gonna get Homer Bailey treatment so when he gets his shot he has to be near perfect, I think he will get a chance with another team, he's sooner or later gonna get caught by other relievers coming up thru the system and get his outright release is my guess
