Britton's last stand

Re: Britton's last stand

I didn't catch the beginning of Britton's start yesterday.

Some things that stick out in the stats:

- HR/FB% is nearly 3 times what it was for him last year, but GB% is actually better this year.
- Walk rate is almost double 2011. His command has been really inconsistent this year.

He has been unlucky with the HRs, but no excuse for the walks. Moving him down was the right move.

yea, I'm just not sure what to think on Britton right now.
He doesn't look entirely different than when in AAA, but just cannot walk people as Jordan said. Some of those low pitches he was throwing were simply not being swung at in the MLB.

Oh man, now Britton is unlucky too? He even said the HR pitches got away from him and were bad pitches.
