All set last year to take over a rotation spot, then they bring in !Pontoon? and point out in the hand book all Card's pitchers got to have a sinker..guy's been in organization for years, and then they get technical. So up and down, with sporadic innings, bad luck, and playing time dictated by instantenous results.
just doesn't have a good sinker and throwing it messes him up. Yea, his 4 seamer might not have quite the giddyup for pitching up in the zone, but it's no finesse pitch either, and in the minors without the micromanaging does well.
starts here and there show what he can do, plus pitching gem under WS pressure.
the micromanaging, poor defense, bad luck, and poor run support a clue that new org would help.
You cannot be more right. The Jocketty/La Russa tandem is one of the most retarded ever. What sucks is as retarded as they are , they won a world series in '06 , making people think all the shirt they do is "smart". Another example is not playing Chris Duncan every day. What is that doing for his development? Yeah Skip Schumaker and So Taguchi are stars!
