My patience with him has run out. We are a quarter of the way through the season and he has shown absolutely no sign of being a reliable starter. He has only had three quality starts in his ten outings this season and has given up twelve bombs. There are those who say "he's young" (he's 27 - he should be hitting his prime soon) or make excuses for him (take away this game or that one and his ERA's much better), but it's far enough along in the season to see that he isn't consistent, and he shows no signs of changing. Send him to the bullpen. Come on, Paul, get that arm working again!
Stupid is as stupid does, and last night he pitched stupidly. Again.
