If you watched this series in its entirety and didn't come away thinking that there's something absolutely, criminally wrong with the way this organization evaluates pitchers, then you should probably go to the doctor, because you might be retarded. The Devil Rays are one of the worst teams in baseball, and the four guys they threw out on the mound are better than any non-Felix starter we have in the system. A team with this many resources at its disposal should never find itself in this kind of situation, but here we are, and honestly, I don't see any imminent escape.

Bill, you tried guys who pitch to contact. You tried guys who pitch to the defense. You tried guys who pitch to the ballpark. Now how about some guys who pitch with ability?
