Well, let's hope it was CBP rather than the team he was facing that led to him getting lit up in Philly whenever he started there.

Definitely a strange turn of events.  I wish Lannan the best of luck, but I hope he finishes the season with a bunch of no decisions.

Nah, I want him to do well, I just don't want the team to do well.  Their pen can blow games just fine.

No decisions can actually be wins for the team. My version ensures losses for the phillies.

Yeah I don't want John Lannan to do well even though I've always liked him.  He's a division rival now so I can't root for him.  I'll give him a friendly round of applause the first time he comes back and then that's it.

It's interesting to be in John's shoes. He was the only "reliable" guy we've had for years. Then all of a sudden he was replaced in an instant and was sent to the minors. He was then allowed to walk and sign with our division rival. From that aspect, it's like "F.U. John Lannan!" But it's baseball... the guys getting paid some great money.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for him.  He was paid $5 mil.  He seems like a decent guy and I rooted for him when he was in DC as kind of the underdog overachiever - the #4 going up against other teams' aces every time out. 

I will, however, save my pity for the Philly fans as we crush their souls this season.  Little Billy on South Street needs to be ready for severe disappointment again this year.
