whoa, zealous proselytizing. cool out, brother.

anywho, i'm not saying johan is bad, by any means. it's just been a few consecutive outings of non-plus ball, and i'm probing for explanations.
one that i've heard repeated is the "shrunken strike zone" theory, but i'm a little more interested in his mechanics. the walks are uncharacteristic, and can speak to latent injuries.
but if nobody's got anything, i'll just trot back into the corner.
i wish that i could give you some better insight, but the only start of his that i have been able to watch on TV was the arizona start and he looked very sharp in that, nothing seemed wrong with his mechanics then. maybe some twins fans have some insight
hmm...nope! not a joke. stop proselytizing. seriously. and no, santana doesn't suck, but there has to be some good explanation why he's suddenly walking guys every other inning.
i am assuming that he will have a great second half (like last year), but even then...what's up with 2nd half performers? i can understand first half performers (fatigue), but why in july does the light go on for some players? more ruminations.
