Oh, don't worry that wasn't rude at all :-t. When Willis falls flat we'll see who the "morons" are.

Willis sat through a 1 hour rain delay, then went back out to pitch. That isn't very easy to do and a lot of pitchers wouldn't even try to do it.

I can't believe how many people think Willis is done, because of a rain delay. That's crazy talk.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

One bad start and all of a sudden Willis is done? I think you guys are a little too hard on him. Most people don't steamroll through the league like he has. I don't expect him to start going downhill after this start, or after this season. Batters and coaches are saying that it's not only his delivery that is hard to find out, but also his pitches. When he has 2-3 bad starts in a row, then we can start talking negative about this kid.

all this talk of morons and idiots and dontrelle trains are not necessary. so what, he wasnt getting his calls and it rained. Im sure he'll go back to his normal phenom self when he pitches again. I mean he's dominated the braves, for pete's sake. Lets not forget that. The kid can flat out pitch and yes, there will be games where he might screw up, and thats what rookies do. I guarantee you he allows 2 or less earned runs next start.
