You guys should reread the first gameday thread if you really don't think people (i.e., more than just SF) were already calling for LaRoche's head after a single game.
To be fair, he was total dog poop and not even warm dog poop in his first game. He had ZERO pitch recognition, it was ugly.
Laroche himself said he just couldn't see the ball coming out of Dempster's hand - but, I think it's clear that he saw the pitches the other two days.
Can't use 2011 as an indicator of anything really, he was injured.
Let's hope games 2 and 3 so far are more indicative of who he really is. Remains to be seen
