Smoltz since his opening day fiasco:

28 IP, 1.93 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 32 K

You don't move this guy to the bullpen.

Kolb has had trouble with location, and he's had trouble trusting his stuff. In his other outings, he was walking guys. He should just be throwing good strikes, he's got pretty good stuff, a lot of movement on his pitches, make guys hit him.

Last night, he was leaving everything over the plate, but also, he got pretty unlucky. There was this weak ass hit by Piazza that he just threw his bat out there and squeezed through the M/I, (Furcal was nowhere to be found?!), which would've ended the game. However, he did serve up some pitches where he got smoked on by a few hitters. (Reyes, Beltran)
