    I hope I’m wrong but watching him in depthly has brought me to this conclusion. He has no absolute no business being a major league starter. Two pitches doesn’t cut it when you see a major league hitter more than one time through the order. That being said he is a marginal at best reliever. Only my opinion.

      I’d totally agree, he is not a starter by far. As a starter, he just doesn’t have the stuff, in the reliever role he seems to have thrived a little, but like you mentioned, in that role the hitters don’t see him more than once. If they give him a spot(I hope not!) He better have a great spring and I mean great!

    I would also really like to start for the Cubs.
