Why is everyone dropping this guy after a pretty good first half just because he had a bad game...
is this fear by the managers or inexperience..or both?
or does he deserve to be dropped?
I think Ima keep him honestly..he has done well
I'd never have him on my team, but if I did, I would have traded him when his ERA was in the 2's.
No matter how much of a groundball pitcher he is, someone who only K's like 3.5/9 innings is bound to get rocked once in a while.
He is a 4.5 pitcher. That's about what you can expect for the rest of the year, or worse.
To drop him now seems dumb though, I agree. I'd still try to trade his 3.44 ERA rather than just drop him outright.

I agree with william...contact pitchers are not very attractive to people looking for a guy who gets more K's
he is also a contact pitcher in a division with a lot of power so choosing when to start the guy is difficult, some teams eat up pitchers who pitch for ground outs.
