Not a terrible start. 6 K's through five isnt too bad. And he has faced Hudson twice this season.

way too early to be dropping a guy with this kind of talent, imo. and you're basing this off him giving up 3 solo jacks? regardless of what happens in this start, it's only april!

Dropping him now is a mistake pure and simple, its a snap judgement based on April which you should never do.

edit : 8 K's, 1 BB now this game against a team that historically destroys him.

He's really settled down. Like 90% of the first 15 batters he faced either hit the ball REALLY hard (3 HRs, 2 to the warning track, a couple other line drive outs on good plays by the OF) or Ks. But he's been doing better lately, getting more grounders.

Electric fastball and slider, I would wait it out. I have followed this guy from the farm system and I firmly believe he will have close to ace-like numbers by the end of 2008. His mechanics are being reworked (not sure what was wrong with them, had an amazing year last year for his age), so give him close to a month more.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I think I'm going to hold him, encouraging start, even with the three bombs.

from fanball:
Marlins pitcher Scott Olsen believes he found a flaw in his mechanics and has worked out the issue. "It's a lack of consistency in my delivery that's causing all this," he told MLB.com. "When you don't have a consistent delivery, your arm slot can change -- and that's the problem...It's still early in the year. Changes can be made and come September, you won't even remember this happened."

Our View
Such was the case in 2006, when Olsen was less than inspiring through the first six weeks before figuring it out and turning into a very solid fantasy pitcher. Hopefully he follows the same path this year.

8 IP, 3 ER, 8 hits, 1 walk and 10 K's.

I'll take that every day of the week.

yeah well he had 3 er before he had 2 ip tonight. im one of his biggest fans but i just couldnt start him with any kind of confidence. i know its early, but i really dont think im going to be missing him too much, even tho he did actually turn this into a good start. hes just not going to be consistent enough to have a good season. sure he'll give you those 4 starts in a row where he looks unhittable, but he'll also get you quite a few bad ones.
