This once highly touted prospect and ChiSock is now getting bombed on in Texas. I know that the move to Ameriquest was going to raise his ERA, but its over 10 for crying out loud.

Has he lost it? Do we cut bait in keeper leagues? has anyone seen him pitch?

Any feedback would be great! Thanks!

Well the comments from Sox personnel on chicago radio shortly after the trade seemed to bring his work ethic and attitude into question. He was supposedly pretty active in the Chicago nightlife also.

He had a big chip on his shoulder last year thinking he should have been in the rotation. The Sox soured pretty big on him over the course of one season.

It sounds like he may have lost some focus on improving. If he does indeed have the skills, hopefully he'll regain some form later this season.

I wouldn't say his problem is attitude, all they are saying in the rangers camp is how good of an attitude he has, and he stands up and takes the blame when he does bad (not something all young pitchers do)

They believe the problem is his mechanics got outta whack and they skipped him 1 start to try and work on it, they believe he is releasing the ball too soon causing him to lose velocity.

The pitching coach also said that he needs to relax on the mound and not rush things.
