What's up w E. Santana???

Postby raysfan4life » Mon May 25, 2009 9:53 pm

Strikes out 3 against the punchless Mariners, then gives up 8 hits and 7 earned in 1 inning??? Did they bring this guy back too early or something? Anyone catch this game? How's he look?

No command, left everything right over the plate. His stuff looked fine, location killed him.

He looked terrible tonight. Haven't seen any of his other starts. I do know he's still a big injury risk. Not sure how stable the elbow is. But he got absolutely tatooed by one of the worst hitting teams in the league.

I got lucky and picked him up last year in April..But I knew once the season ended I was not gonna draft him next year..

He is way to inconsistent. I think you are asking too much if you want those stats he did last year

That is not true at all.. He definitely has the stuff to repeat those numbers and has always had the talent..He is either clearly not healthy or has not built up the arm strength yet.. I think he is not healthy and trying to pitch through it.. He was throwing in the low 90s and his breaking pitches did not have nearly the bite on them that they had last year..

It's just Ervin's second start. I'd be more concerned once a few more starts are under his belt.

Stay the course mates. Bench him if you must but give Ervin some time to get into the swing of things he just got back.

Here's a good read about Ervin that agrees with the Artful Dodger's statements and I also agree with:

Man, I want to be as optimistic as anyone, but 4 IP, 7 hits, 6 ER, 1 K...against the Mariners? I'm not cutting bait yet, but....man, this is tough. Anyone have a ray of optimism? I don't have a roster spot to hang on to this guy for a month while he "finds himself"...

5.1 IP, 10 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, 2 K...not much of a final line...
