The hopeful ace of the staff has finally turned it around and pitching like the ace we all thought he could be.

Thats what happens when they just let a guy throw and stop worrying about minor nuiances. Kaz didn't forget how to pitch, he has always been dominant, they need to leave him alone.

A little lost so far. I remember him struggling a bit at first at Montgomery as well though, so it is not worrying me.

I think the Rays shouldn't give him a Sept call-up, what do you think?

I really think they should if they have any hopes of him making the bigs right out of spring training. It they want him to get say 200 at bats in Durham, then let him stay there and start the season at Durham next year and then get promoted to Tampa. But if they have ideas of him breaking camp a Devil Ray, then he really needs to get called up this September if nothing else to sit the bench and get used to the big league ways of doing things. We can learn from the Royals mistake with Alex Gordon, so lets use it to our advantage.

So you don't think the mistake with Gordon was not having him play at all in AAA? I thought the problem Gordon had was going right from AA to AAA, which is almost what we would be doing with Evan.
