League minimum must've gone up considerably.

None of them are eating cat food. 

An aside: anyone hear the story about Sammy Sosa getting busted in the clubhouse eating cat food?

Still got 3 more years before they need to even think about it.

WBC screwed him up.  Pitchers are at risk when they sign up for that joint.  I'm not surprised by this.

Needs to go on the DL for a few weeks.

How much longer do they keep trotting him out there every fifth day?

Probably the rest of the season. They don't trust anyone to take Ross place and he has been terrible.

Drew Smyly, Danny Duffy, Sam Dyson and Mark Melancon also come to mind.

Who knows if that's the cause though, because Stroman is as good as ever, and so is Givens.  But if the Home Run Derby can mess up a batter's swing, there shouldn't be any surprise that a big deviation from a training program (like the WBC represents) could possibly mess up a pitcher's game.

Non-signing of Melancon could make Rizzo GM of the Year.  :lol:

Lugo was not only an over-achiever last season, but had a partial tear prior to going to the WBC
Smyly got hurt pitching. Probably happens at any time, especially given his history.
Danny Duffy was pitching fine until he strained an olbique.
Dyson is a reliever, so they're expected to self destruct. Who predicted Blanton and Kelley would pitch like crap?
Melancon has been due for regression for a while now. It's why I didn't want to sign him in the offseason.

Yea, but that's negated by you trying to say Tanner Roark was better than Max Scherzer

Should be on next plane to Syracuse to try to work things out down there. Can't afford his rehab up here. WBC is a convenient excuse. He's been bad before (in other years). Right now, he's throwing BP.

He has no options, so unless he's hurt, he isn't going down.

We can absolutely afford to rehab him up here because of an 8 game lead in a terrible division.
