Whenever you have a pitcher working on a quick rhythm, you force him to throw pitches. These guys tend to rush and the command goes when the go through multiple pitches per batter.
As I recall that was one of the main issues early on last year. They were swinging way too early, not working the count and letting starters off easy. Well that and the fact that Gonzalez couldn't get anyone out in the ninth.

I cannot wait until the day these "take 15 seconds between pitches" type of players are out of the game.

Marlins are about to find out his 2010 was a fluke. Glad we even got Vandenhurk out of him.
