LOL on Cricton!!  Buck still in love with what he saw in spring training. He hasn't been ready for prime time all year.  God and they keep calling his number.  Same with Wilson.

This team's pitching isn't fixable....3rd worst in BA....3rd worst in runs allowed....worst in ERA....worst in hits allowed...worst in walks issued....take away Bundy and the numbers are even scarier.

When we got off to that hot start I said the SP would implode, only a matter of time..

Honestly, I would see where we are in 3 weeks but I would fire DD and go on a rebuild. If Britton could come back healthy, you could get a HAUL for him!

Seriously, as Tanner Scotts sits in AA throwing 100mph+, genius.

No, but he might hire more scouts and the best player development guys $ can buy.

Welcome to Baltimore kid.  Where pitchers go to die.

He might have been the best pitcher in the system at the time, but that doesn't mean this kid is ready for The Show.

What's really cause for concern is the rather low strikeout rate (18 in 30 IP) and 4.7BB/9. By comparison, Ubaldo's walk rate over four years here is 4.3/9. A guy walking that many guys in the minors is likely going to walk even more in the majors. And if you can't strike guys out, there's a better chance of balls in play falling in for hits because there are usually runners on base and the defense has to play differently with runners on.
