But he needs to establish his K zone early in the game. It doesn't help that he is nibbling and missing early. Then the ump has no choice but to not give him the benefit of the doubt throughout the game.

That's the problem, he seemed poise to get off to a better start with the way he finished last season. He still pitched great in the second half and avoided the 5 walks starts that have dominated his first halves and '06 second half.

It's too bad Cain wasn't dealt to Toronto for Rios, he may be better off in the AL East at this rate. :-P
