He must have done something to you, personally..because he's doing fine this season.

Traber is a situational lefty, and a very good one. He is living on borrowed time pitching extended periods where he needs to face righties. Some poor pitch selection to walk Jones to get to McCann who is the most dangerous hitter on the team. Once Traber got behind him, it was clear that McCann could sit on the curve until it fell in the zone. Ultimately, his fate was sealed with the choice to limit Bergmann and going to Traber for more than an inning of lefty work.

Coming into tonight he was:
.405/.455/.568 against RHB
.143/.194/.250 against LHB

Could it be more obvious?
