He got sent down to minors for poor performance. In 3+ innings at AAA, he walked 15 and hit 2 batters.

Holy ****, how do you walk 15 in 3+ innings?? That makes D-Cab look like Greg Maddux!

In his first minor league outing, he gave up 7 BB and 7 ER in 1 inning. Then had two scoreless inning appearances with a combined 3 walks. And then his last appearance lasted one out and consisted of 5 walks and 6 ER. Good for a 5.40 WHIP in the minors.

What sort of manager leaves a pitcher in after he's walked five guys in one inning. Seems insane to me that it would ever reach the point where he'd walk seven in one inning.

Yeah I had this thought too. Definitely not going to help any confidence issues if he gets left in to be that bad.

Wow and the pitches must have been so far off the hitters couldn't even get close, you would think after the first dozen walks or so, they would try to help the guy out by swinging at anything close.

Not trying?

I could try as hard as possible and still have a line something like 0.2 IP, 11H, 19 ER, 11 BB, 0K, 3 HBP. :)

Some guys just come down with Steve Blass disease. Although I think that much of the time that ends up being an underlying injury. I was in the stands for a Mark Wohlers rehab appearance in AAA when he was trying to come back from a case of the Rick Ankiels and it was all kinds of funny/sad as he'd throw one pitch 45 feet and the next one off the backstop.

    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
