That line gives no indication whatsoever of his command of control. I believe the only good thing from that line is that his ERA dropped. Let us accentuate the positive.

It was a response to an earlier post which denigrated him strictly for his ERA in this same thread. I didn't see the game. I don't know much about it. The fact he went two scoreless is a positive obviously. The WP was the very first one he threw and I don't think he can be blamed for the PB.

The fact he recorded two assists on come backers and recorded an out covering first does speak to the lack of quality contact the other team was making.

Great; I take any positive new happily with pitchers in this organization.
