We would have been thrilled to have a starter that consistently went six innings and gave up 2-3 runs and won six in a row. Kevin Correia does that this year and he gets bumped from the rotation. That’s progress.

The pitcher that I’m worried about is JMac he has been a little shaky lately and wonder if he needs a break.

Good for him. He sounds hungy. He doesn’t want to give up his spot. You have to appreciate that. I hope he gets a chance to get back into our rotation or into the rotation of an AL contender (via trade). I just got a newfound respect for KC.

He said he’s not happy but he’ll go to the pen and do his best to help the team there. Do you want him to be happy about it and say “Even though I won 6 in a row the stress was getting to me and I will be relieved to pitch in some lower-leverage situations.” People can find anything to put a negative spin on. He’s unhappy because he has been pitching well and got demoted despite that. I know I’d be mad if I went into work and they said “You are doing a great job but we are going to give you something half as important to do because we were lucky enough to get another employee we think is better than you out of the blue.”

Everyone said he was very professional about it, but I didn’t see that in the interview it all. In fact looked to me like he was having a hissy.
If he can’t get behind any and all moves to improve this club to give them all a chance at overcoming 2 decades of losing and possibly adding the firepower to compete in the playoffs – then it’s probably best if they do try to move him.
Best case scenario is that he does jump on the Karstens train, and learns a little humility. Dominate out of the pen and be able to contribute to the wins on a day to day basis rather than every five.
We’ll see. It may be interesting though as a decent starter in a fairly weak market to see what kind of prospect he could bring in. You may not get 3 strong like Wandy brought, but maybe you get one of those kind of players back – Grossman straight up kind of deal?
