Let me tell you something about Willis, MLB is promoting this guy like he's the next Bob Gibson. The entire MLB organization is using Willis as part of a major ad campaign to promote baseball in urban environments, especially with young African-Americans. There's no way this future star, expected to carry the baseball torch into the next decade, is going to be banished to the bullpen because Mr. Phelps had one lucky start. Granted, the D-Train has had a few crappy outings this season, but it's going to take a really horrendous performance to completely derail the D-Train.



If he doesnt start pitching he'll be promoting MLB from the streets or at least in the bullpen. While they are at it they should take away his ROY and give it to Webb :-°

Webb hasn't exactly been brilliant either though.

dontrelle has no stuff, the only thing going for him is the once deceptive wind-up, which everyone has figured out by now. If he didnt have that weird leg kick but the same pitches, hes tanyon sturtze

Guess he found out quickly what he was doing wrong. Not a bad pitching line for Willis tonight. Old savvy Mackeon knows how to get in them youngsters heads doesnt he? :-D Either that or as Madison said.. the old kick in the caboose got this train running back on track.. atleast for this start. ;-D
