Exceedingly frustrating to watch a guy dominate, and then unravel... again, and again, and again... and again... and again and again.

 

Maybe the Red should just let him pitch 4 innings and I'll handcuff their fireman for the win.

Where's all the great analysis now it seems like the Reds tinkered with him and solved it now what's the problem they can't fix him again I'm not sure what to do at this point with him lot of potential to give up on

Metrics don't win fantasy leagues. He stinks 

Obviously it all depends on your league settings of course. If the metrics paint a hopeful sign, and you're in a deep keeper/dynasty setting, you hold. 

 

But for people in shallower formats with stuff available on the wire, he's got to do something to prove his value today. At this point I'd rather use his bench spot for a stud prospect honestly.

I would venture to say he's a hold regardless, his fastball needs to get back to 97-98

Didn’t watch the game. Looked like he made one bad pitch to Molina with the bags full? If that’s the case, the WHIP and the Ks were first class. The ERA.....well no one said he’s the next JFer anyway, so.....Hopefully a step in the right direction . He did throw 110 pitches so he’s got some bulldog in him.

Many many pitches yanked into the left hand batter's box.  The HR's shouldnt have been hit, he walked the pitcher, didnt look good at all.

I don't see how you can get this from what happened. 

 

He walked the pitcher, gave up a single, walked another batter and then gave up a double to Molina. That's not just "one bad pitch," it was a sequence of poor pitching and not buckling down to finish off his opponents.

 

Hardly what I'd call a "bulldog" performance.

He reminds me of Michael Pineda.  Strong advanced metrics but enough blowups that he is worth less than it might appear.
