Nielsosky Posted September 21, 2003 Share Posted September 21, 2003 Ok, I know that you are going to have a lot of criticism for this post, but I'm going to say that I think we should give Dontrelle Willis a day off in the Phillies series. True, he is still considered a staff ace by some people; true, this is the most important seies of the year, but D-Train just isn't D-Train anymore. We all know that he has not had a pretty ERA since the all-star break. We all know, even if we don't want to admit it, that he has been just another mediocre pitcher lately. Are going to tell me that you are going to send him out because of the reputation he forged in the first half, that has for some reason not disolved yet? Are you going to try to win the wild card race with what he did in the first half? We al know that the only thing good about him right now is his reputation. One, if we pitch him inthe game against the Phils he is already so tired, that I do not see him doing great against the Phils suddenly alive-again offense. Two, if we do not give him some rest, he is going to be absolutely nothing by the postseason and will eventually end up in Dr. Andrews office that Aj Burnett visited. I'm not saying he isn't a good, but right now he isn't. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
