I know I'm swimming upstream, but I don't think Gregg is that bad. I know so far this year he looks like a disaster, but his career stats are fair (550 Ks, 266 Ws, 4.12 ERA) and I think it puts batters off their game to look at a hard throwing guy who is on the edge of being out of control. As to the Os having pitchers like that when they're going bad, during their glory years in the '70s there was Don Stanhouse. Earl Weaver couldn't stand to watch the guy pitch so he'd go back in the tunnel and smoke cigarettes, but he still would put him in because he did a certain job. Like Stanhouse, Gregg refuses to throw a strike until he absolutely has to. That can be effective, but it is a dangerous way to work. Sometimes you get the final out with the go-ahead runs walked on base, sometimes you don't.
