Name them...don't just make crap up.
Martin got pulled against Baltimore after 4.1 with 3 unearned runs. He's had 1 bad start, in Cleveland. Tonight, with the rain delay, you pull him after 5 instead of running him out there for another inning.
I gave up on the game and went out to run some errands, but I didn't even bother to look up the games, relied on memory, you looked them up and accuse me of being wrong? hihi game before the Cleveland game. I said one as bad as today, Cleveland, and one almost as bad as today... That game? At Houston. Might not have given up a *lot* of runs, thus not being as bad as tonight and Cleveland, but that was a bad game considering eight hits, two home runs, in 5.2.

Sorry, I don't call that a good game.
Martin has been in the minor leagues since 2001. He's dominated the minor leagues at every level. He's 27. What else do you think he can learn in a few more months?
I think he needs to go back down and work on his slider. Great, he was in the minors for several years. He'd never faced major league talent for any prolonged time. Now he has. His slider is extremely weak at times. Look at pitch tracks and what most of his hits/HRs were from tonights game. Sliders. At times it can be devestating for him, so I wouldn't say he needs to cut it from his selection. But do you think we need the major league team to cede wins so he can work on a pitch, or should he go back to the minors for a couple months to focus on that pitch where wins aren't a priority?
