Just unacceptable.

There are so many issues with the pitching from injuries to development to the evaluation of talent on the market that no one should be comfortable in their job.

Pitching in general worries me because it seems in light of the CWS staff issues pitchers in general. What philosophies, what physical stresses are being imposed on younger players?

I'll make my final analysis after the season; not after a lopsided loss.
