Then, he should start in AAA next season, and stay there for half the season, no matter how well he pitches.

This guy clearly needs to be convinced he's capable at every level, or he could suffer a major setback in confidence.

The Cardinals should have learned their lesson by now with him. Don't look at his numbers. Just let him come along slowly. He's clearly got the stuff to pitch in the majors, but his head is the problem.

One more time getting called up and blown out and his career could be done. Better to wait another year with slow, steady progress under the radar before bringing him back up.

I'd rather have him for ten years after waiting one more year, than to have him for three months and never play him again.


Very well said. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
