Examples: I sure hope Chipper's injury is not too Kolb, as we need him back asap.
Marcus Giles has been playing Kolb lately.
I must admit, I'm kind of surprised by his struggles, and kind of not. On the one hand, he was great last year. He was just beating hitters into the ground, no one could get solid wood on his stuff. On the other hand, his strikeout total had to be a cause for concern. Closers just don't remain consistently dominant, generally, without strikeout stuff. Sometimes you gotta be able to reach back and get the big K with runners on base. I really thought that trade (Capellan for Kolb) was going to be a good deal for both teams. The Braves got the instant help that a contender needs, and the Brewers got an top tier pitching prospect that a developing team needs. However, I have to tilt the deal a bit in our favor at this point.
