I know this isn't very PC of me, but…

I’m just not a huge fan of DiceK. I never have – and though one can never rule out the future, I don’t see myself feeling all warm and fuzzy over him.

He’s a good pitcher. Absolutely.
Is he the “second coming of (fill in the blank w. your choice HERE)” as we all thought he’d be? Hell no.

I know his season’s been great, statistically. However, it’s games like last night when you really need him to be able to make it out of the 5th inning…..he seems to fall short. I just don’t get it. Is it that he’s not great under pressure? I don’t see how that can be, seeing as he’s always got two men on base, no outs – and seems to make it out of an inning. If that isn’t pressure….

But it just seems like he is such a short distance pitcher. If you get 5 solid innings out of him, you’re lucky.

Maybe it’s that he’s a frustrating style to watch. Maybe we’ve been spoiled to some extent by having some really solid, consistent pitchers. I just don’t get that, “whew, DiceK’s up tonight” feeling.

Don’t paint me a flipping picture for God’s sake — just strike the guy out!
