but it is time for Mitre to get hit around a bit.
Ah the inevitable implosion. I could see that happening but Im going to risk it.
I keep expecting Smoltz to have a horrid start too, but the last one of those came in the Smoltz vs Glavine II matchup.....
Not trying to compare Mitre to Smoltz at all just saying that I do have that same mentality that players will fall back to earth at some point.
I think Mitre had a strong debut in 2005 and a strong start to the year in 2006. Both years just when I was about to maybe buy into him, he started to stink.
This year I saw he was coming off the DL so I spot started him for his first start, and he pitched very well. He's coming off another brilliant start, so I see no reason to jump off the train just yet. I'm spot starting him tomorrow.
That being said, if he follows his usual pattern, the blowup is only a matter of time away.
