As much as I'm irritated with Bondo, being from the Detroit area and a Tiger's fan, he just needs to get himself turned around. You figure he is only 24 years old and has been pitching in the big leagues since he was 20. You can note that each year in the league his ERA has dropped, with this year being the exception. It's really easy to forget that just 4 starts ago he had an ERA of 3.69 but giving up at least 5 runs per start for 4 straight starts can do that to your ERA. Another thing is that Bonderman added a changeup to his selection and that is the pitch that has been getting hit hard. I don't think they should have had him use it this year, but they decided to do so. That one can go to Chuck Hernandez the pitching coach. Now historically Bonderman has been much worse in the second half which doesn't bode well for owners, but I can attribute that to too many innings at too young of an age. In my opinion I think that a trip to the DL with a "tired arm" would actually be a good thing. What he really needs to work on is getting out of the first inning unscathed. The Tigers were going to try and change his routine before games to get him in a better mindset for the first inning which could explain why he has gotten rocked his last four times out. I'm not making excuses for the guy, but I say stick with him. Maybe not keep him in the lineup right now, but leave him on your bench. Any guy that can hit 96-97 with the fastball and has the nastiest right handed slider in the AL is definitely worth watching.
