I can't believe he pitched yesterday, that kind of thing can be pretty debilitating. I'm thinking he probably should have sat yesterday out and let Obermueller have the spot start, but he wanted to go. He won't make the trip to San Fran, but he wasn't due to pitch anyway.
Yeah and those boneheads left him to pitch over 100. There is a reason why that franchise just plain sucks.
True, but the thing is that he wasn't pitching that poorly. He have up two early home runs (1st inning), which was troublesome. I wanted him out then thinking something was wrong. Then he settled down and pitched very well for the next 5 innings or so, and he kept us in the game despite Oswalt's dominance. Then he got rocked again. Sheets himself didn't blame the performance on the illness, and said he felt good before he started. I don't blame the organization for this one like I do for, say, employing Wes Helms.
