Maybe he can feel that his team can score runs, and when he starts, he's aggressive cause he feels that he doesn't have to throw a shutout to win.

Mitre did have a pitchers duel in his start against Atlanta on April 10th. He went 7 2/3 innings and gave up 2 runs. Then dusty pulled him and the bullpen gave away the game. I've got my eye on this guy.

Dropping Contreras for Mitre is borderline insane.

Not meaning to be an A-hole with this, but considering how easy it is to access tons of info on virtually any player, why not do a little research on a guy you aren't familiar with before making a move such as this?

Okay, Contreras has shaky numbers through two starts. The first outing was okay till he came apart in the middle innings, then he got lit up at Fenway, a place where lots of good pitchers get trashed on occasion. Big deal. The guy looked great this spring, and is off a season in which he goes 7-2, 3.30, averages more than one K per IP and has a 1.15 WHIP.

How anyone can possibly drop Contreras for a kid who comes into this season with a 23-23 record at A and AA is astounding.
