Starts off the game going 0-2 on Damon, and then he walks him on 4 straight pitches. What's he doing nibbling? When is this guy going to learn to just go after guys. Damn this guy is frustrating as hell.

Discuss.

I guess you must not follow him much then. It wasn't ONE at bat, this has been a trend with him all season long. His K/BB is at 1.96, down from previous years. His K/9 is a bit down and his BB/9 is a bit up.

So again, it isn't ONE at bat. Thanks for your input though.

He only walked 1 batter total in his last two starts so I was hoping he wouldn't go back to his walking ways. Hopefully he calms down and the Blue Jays get some runs for him here with the bases loaded.

Couple the fact that he plays for a team with a total inept offense and it makes it doubly frustrating.

You see what I mean. The Jays give him a 7-2 lead, and he proceeds to come out into the bottom of the 5th and gives up a base hit, a walk, and hits a guy. Unbelievable.

The Jays will be lucky if they get a win today.

I'm thinking I'm going to drop him. He's so frustrating. On the one hand, he's only had 2 starts i think where he's given up more than 3 runs. On the other, his K's are down and I feel like every time he pitches my WHIP goes up.

People on this forum tend to overreact, but I have never seen someone overreact on account of 1 AB before.

Anyone with an ounce of fantasy baseball sense would have been hesitant to start McGowan today. He's got some pretty significant splits this year. On the road he has a 5.68 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. That this was a road start at Yankee Stadium should have been a big red flag. BTW his numbers at home: 1.93 ERA, 1.26 WHIP. Why would you think NY would be where he'd turn it around on the road?
