lincecum, for example, got rocked in his first outing but has been awesome since. if gallardo's ego is fragile, i'd rather sit him a few more weeks down in the minors and then pull him up for good at the ASB...
I see what your saying but couldnt he get rocked his first outing after the allstar break just as easily as he could right now. If his ego is fragile then its just fragile time wont change that but experience might.
i agree that he could get rocked at any time. my reasoning was that if he's just brought up for a spot start now and gets rocked, how would that affect him? if he gets called up at the ASB for good (and i stress, FOR GOOD), then there are no worries that a bad outing would send him back down.
anyway, bush has pitched well his last two outings so gallardo looks like he'll have to wait a few more weeks...
