Johnny Cueto has a 1.31 ERA, Troy Tulowitzki has a .400 batting average, Charlie Blackmon has a .359 batting average. Meanwhile, Wade Miley has a 5.14 ERA, and RA Dickey has a 5.01 ERA. Should their teams demote them? Who cares what they've done in previous years?
I'll end this now and won't post again about the starters and how they CAN'T go deep into games. Truth is in what Roch reported. You don't see it, but it's a trend for the Orioles.
Oh by the way, the ERA's of Miley and Dickey is better than Gonzalez and Jimenez. You may want to try to dig a little deeper.
