It's when people expect him to become a Cy Young candidate because of his stuff that is tiring. I've accepted him as Gavin Floyd. A decent pitcher with flashes of greatness.
I frequently get pissed at Floyd when I watch him pitch, yet at the same time I'm pleased his option was exercised. That seems like a contradiction, but you said it correctly with the statement bolded above.

Gavin is one of the strangest .500 pitchers I've seen over the years. He's a complete enigma. He'll have five or six starts in a row where he's just a monster, completely unhittable for even top offensive clubs. Then, he'll have five or six starts in a row where he throws batting practice.

But, at the end of the day, when you look at the production and you look at the salary, he's good value as a back-of-the-rotation starter. We all just have to learn to live with the fact that he is who he is.
JB's attendance record:
2004: 14-5; 2005: 16-8; 2006: 19-10; 2007: 8-12; 2008: 15-7; 2009: 6-13; 2010: 12-11; 2011: 9-8; 2012: 11-7; 2013: 8-9; 2014: 7-9; 2015: 10-10. Total: 135-109.
Next game: April 2016
