When Valdez comes back, Leiter will be going to the pen.

Says common sense :D .

 

Despite all the unjust negativity towards Valdez last year, he was one of the best #5 starters in baseball.

He'd be a solid #3 or 4 starter on many teams. I miss that guy.

I agree 100%. The only time Jack could use Leiter is to eat up some innings when the game is out of control. It's a real problem. If Valdez replaces Al in the rotation, then Al would only get opportunities when we need that 6th starter.

I still think the Marlins should find another starter somewhere. There's no telling how Valdez will do when he comes back. Al Leiter in the pen is a scary thought too given his walks/inning numbers.

 

I say just don't let him pitch anymore and give him his damn $7 million.

I'm sure Loria is just beside himself over it. That's $7M down the toilet. Ouch.

I have no idea what I'd do with Leiter. I sure as hell don't want him in the bullpen because one thing I cannot stomach from a reliever is walks, and Leiter puts guys on base CONSTANTLY.

 

When Valdez comes back, I'd give him a couple starts to see how he does. If he pitches at least DECENT, send Leiter to the pen & use him only in blowouts for long relief.

I'm sorry, but 114 pitches in 4 1/3 innings is horrible.

 

There are no excuses for that. Pretty much anyone in the minors right now could pitch like he did tonight.

The home plate umpire also had me and a lot of fans in my section groaning on a lot of botched called third strikes on Leiter. I'm not making excuses, I'm just saying that I feel that he had his moments where the umpire unfairly extending his work load.
