I thought that it was more of a fatigue issue going into the ASB. Pitching on short rest....and partying hard between games.
Pitching in the park that gives up the most HRs in the majors does not help either. Throw in a mediocre bullpen..which can take take away a few more win opportunites....and one of the hottest summers on record, and it is a recipe for disaster.
I Guess that also coming into play is the fact that hitters had to get used to seeing him also.
I think that I am gonna cut bait and pick up Jason Jennings if he does well tonight.
Our post-season rosters lock on midnight Saturday.
My bad Jennings is gone....gotta look at Jeff Francis...
