I sat back and watched him get pounded the last few outings and read all the hate mail. I thought I would at least give him the Tampa Bay game tonight to prove himself. To this point in the season he has pitched well at home and has done very well against Tampa the two times he faced them in April. So I get on to check stats and see he is lifted after 3 innings, after giving up a HR, 5 Runs.
I deserve the Loss just for being stubbon enough to think Leo Mazzone is a pitching god and could bring Bedard back to his form of late July last year. Goes to show that anyone looks good with Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz and company in the rotation.
Sorry had to vent.
