“My stuff was so good, I wouldn’t want to get guys out,” Verlander said. “I’d want to embarrass them. And occasionally, I’d be able to do that. But that leads to 100 pitches, and you’re out in 5 1/3 innings.”
The above quote came from Justin Verlander obviously, but it could apply to at least 3 guys who have started a game for us this season in Cueto, Bailey, and Volquez. All of them possess phenomenal 'stuff', but so far Cueto is the only one who seemingly has begun to pitch to get outs instead of to strike guys out. Bailey has shown brief flashes of it, and I'm not sure where Volquez's head is at all. Chapman may also fall into this category, but who knows with him working from the bullpen as opposed to the rotation.
It's not to say any of our guys possess Verlanders arm, he's clearly a notch above, but they could indeed be excellent pitchers if they learn its about outs and not strike outs and making guys look silly.
