I'd agree with Carp if he was going to be out the entire year. The Dodgers spent $47M on someone they thought was going to be the #1 guy in their rotation and he is done for the year with 1 win to show for it, I' m thinking they believe this was a big bust.
I also think the Giants knew he was damaged goods when they made the move having seeing the drop in his velocity the 2nd half of last year and are laughing behind closed doors about this one every day.
