Ok, what are your projections on this guy? Does he get his act together and pitch like we have seen him? Or does he continue the Jekyll and Hyde routine. I for one, am praying for a great outing so I can sell, sell, sell. I had him last year and took a chance on him this year. But I am hating him right now. Anyone else in the same boat? What are your thoughts.

He is the Pat Burrell of pitching.

As long as it wasn't a woman, and you weren't in a bedroom, I think I'd take that as a compliment.

I have Ollie and Ian Snell both of whom I am about to cast to waivers. When Ollie goes good he is solid but those blow up games (like tonight - 3HR allowed) just kill my stats. I simply cant afford his wild swings. I hate to give up on him this early in the season but I need more consistency.

Just grabbed Ollie with my #2 waiver in a deep leauge. Hopefully he can turn it around. Does he have any significant splits I should know about? or should i just run him out there every start? Never owned him before. I remember him getting owned by the braves.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm about to drop him like a bad habit.

With the way he's pitched lately there's no way I'd trot him out there every start. He's shown in the past he can be a ratio killer for long stretches. I may leave him on the bench for a bit and see if he can work things out; though he did a decent job of settling down last night after getting touched for 2 in the first, before deciding to allow some more homers in the 5th. The line is bad, but he wasn't as bad as it looks.

Somewhat heartening, I guess. I have been running him out there all year, and he has been running my team in to the ground. I am going to try to trade him.
