I hope a move happens soon because I need to make a decision on my keepers and I would really be upset if Hill gets traded and succeeds somewhere and I don't keep him. :-t

I sure hope my slow draft moves along more quickly so I can snag him with a flier at the end before everyone starts to get wind of what's happening :-D

Well, Hill was shut down last year because of his back. So in theory his back could the root cause of his control issues. Heal the back, heal the control problems. Or maybe Hill's back is fine now and his mechanics are messed up from the back injury. Back, mechanics or Ankielitis you make the call. I tend to think the back injury played a role. I wonder how long he pitched with the back woes before telling anyone. I also wonder how injured his back is, or even if it is injured. I don't know whats wrong with Hill, but he is a talented pitcher.

He can't seem to get his control back after Rothschild tried to speed up his delivery and after having a nagging back injury.

Looks like he'll be an Oriole sometime next week.

Rich Hill traded for a player to be named later.
I have a feeling that that player isn't going to be Brian Roberts. Sorry Cubs fans. :*)

I hope the change of scenery does him good. He's got nowhere to go but up right?

Most certainly true! Anything upwards of 1-0 in 5 starts would be GREAT ;-D
