He was bad because he was too young, not ready and Royals sucked.
No, he was pretty good in 2004. He was bad in 05 due to a combination of his mental state, the continuous suckiness of the team and stupid Guy Hansen messing with his mechanic and approach.
So you are saying he wasn't rushed to the majors when he was 21 yo getting his ass kicked every day?
Looking at his history, getting rushed to MLB in 05 culminated into his breakdown.
He did fine his first season? no?
He was fine but it wasn't a full season either. Also, the pressure of doing well initially and then not coming even close to that the following season probably had a lot to do with his breakdown. But that is just my guess.
