Sorry, I'm still seeing this as a good outing against a poor team. I love it for the Pirates, but the trend continues (Cinci, Atlanta are his only other "good" starts).
I'm going to bench him when he pitches against the Sox this week for sure. No way I'm going to take the chance at getting shelled by a top hitting team at home.
If he does well against them, maybe I'll change my mind, but not yet. He's still a matchup start only.
