I'll be the first to disagree with the Benoit part. :-D As long as he keeps blowing games like he did today, I seriously doubt he winds up with the closer spot. Plus his ERA for May ballooned up to around 3 with today's outing (I know this was written this morning - before today's game), keeping his overall ERA above 5. He may have the most talent of the 3 options, and have the best raw "stuff", but he sure isn't showing anything of any value so far this season. :-P

And me being a Ranger fan, I'd love to see him be very good like he was last year, but so far he's been nothing but a big ball of yuck! :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I picked him up a week ago in my 20 teamer. I was/am expecting a 3.20 - 3.50 ERA over the rest of the year, with 9 K/9. ;-D
I had him last year, and after a sucky April he had 4 quality months in a row, so maybe he's just a slow starter.
