Jon Garland. NO Its not because he shut down the yankees. That is a good feat though, but he had some nice stuff today. I think hes very underrated this year and that offense is going to keep producing, and hes going to win at least 17. I know this seems like im writing this just because of his start today, but im not, through spring training hes had great stuff and hes due for a breakout!

I can certainly understand the walks, you try pitching to that lineup! Theres no way you can pitch around almost any of them, so if it means walking them instead of giving them home run pitches, oh well! H ewont have to worry about that when he plays against the teams in the central division!

Don't underestimate Bobby Higginson and Eric Munson. Those two will get to feast on Jon Garland pitching this yr :-D

Having watched the entire game, I was not impressed. Even worse than the 7 walks was the fact that he continued to issue them after he was given bigger and bigger leads. The Yankees are simply not hitting well right now and they are making average pitching look good. Not saying that Garland can't have a good year but I wouldn't take much positive out of today's performance.

We have been waiting for garland to have a breakout year for 5 years now............

His situation is very comparable to adrian beltre's..........Potential,still young,can never put it all together.........


I have no opinion on how he does anymore, i just am happy with an under 4.50 era with him..............

AJ Burnett pitched a no-hitter with 9 walks, many people dismissed his performance because of the 9 walks. Some actually said the walks made that performance all the more impressive, as he was usually pitching with someone on base. Burnett turned in a damn fine season that year.

Obviously the walks are a small concern, but you can't dismiss his performance because he walked a few guys. If he continues to walk guys, yes it is a likely problem.

He isn't hitting my roster yet, but I wouldn't ignore him because he had 7 walsk.

I agree with the Braves hater. It was, after all, a career high. He probably won't always be walking seven every start.
