Justin Wilson Throws Second No Hitter of the 2012 Season

  • I must say after you reported that he was moving to the pen i was shocked to see him starting and pitching 8 innings today but okay

    • Yeah, not sure what’s going on there. Hurdle said the other day that they were moving him to the bullpen.

      • Im pretty happy though because you look at our staff. yes i still like our staff but their later year veterans and J-Mac who i pray figures it out. but I think Justin has the ability to start and not like he was struggling but after being told he was going to the pen then coming out and doing that when he got a start anyways. wow…. its hard to say go to the pen now. like how could you?

        • The move to the pen was about the short term. They were going to move him there so he could help as a reliever in September. In the long term, they still view him as a starter.

  • I thought he was moved into relief? Or did that get scratched when Locke got called up? Games like this are the reason I go batty when people call for him to be moved into the ‘pen. Kid needs to be given a chance in the bigs to start next season and prove whether or not he belongs in the rotation. If he can keep the BB’s under control, he’s got the stuff, IMO, to be a very good #2 guy.
