    • Owens is the victim of heaped-upon expectations. I’ve always felt that Owens would be a tick better than Maholm, but people are expecting him to be a shutdown ace.

      Owens is adjusting to a different level of hitter that can hit his offspeed stuff.

      Ultimately, Owens will be fine and I still expect to see him in Pittsburgh this summer, but hopefully this recalibrates expectations.
