Valverde got hammered again tonight. I still don't think he's toast. If you've been watching them the D-Backs are currently an organization in complete disarray.
Their 3 young "studs" that they expected to perform have been mediocre so far: Webb/Cintron/Valverde.
Their superstar's shoulder is in such bad condition that the cutoff men basically have to run all the way out to him when he's throwing to the infield.
Their key pickup in the offseason--for whom they gave up both young talent and veterans--is badly injured and may miss the rest of the year.
The list could go on. My point is that in all this turmoil Valverde hasn't played that poorly. (Heck, his era is well over 3 points lower than Borowski's!)
The ONLY bright spot in the D-Backs season so far has been the Unit's apparent return to dominance.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
