Everybody loved him when he was winning game after game after game.
Everybody loved him when he pitched a no hitter.
We have a great team of over acheivers, a season, no one expected or saw coming ( the experts, anyway).
They disposed of Tampa Bay and the great David Price and Evan Longoria.
They disposed of the Detroit Tigers and the greatest starting pitching staff on the planet, the world's greatest hitter ( sarcasm).
This board loves to kick players when they are down.
Case in point : The "get rid of Napoli" threads mid summer when he was slumping. After the Detroit series ....anyone wish Napoli was sacked?...I didn't think so.
How about we stay positive in this most refreshingly incredible of seasons?
Do you people constantly need to look for the negative? the guy who's hurt or slumping?
It's clear that Buchholz needs to work on stamina and conditioning. It is also
clear that he is a pitcher with great stuff. How many "great" pitchers are there in MLB right now?...not that many.
Where are all the Lackey haters?
I'll bet all the people who bash struggling players constantly were the drunks who got cut from their beer league softball teams because they tripped over firstbase everytime or the dweebs who couldn't make the team in Little League.
