He hurts himself mainly by getting behind in the count on most batters...

then does a decent job of working the count back sometimes, but just has to throw too many pitches...then often either walks the batter or they get a hit. The few times he does get ahead in the count, he usually gets a ground ball out (or an occasional strikeout).
Hopefully he can help us some, whether shorter starts or even in relief.
As discussed, was hoping Spivey would be a 4th or 5th starter...for various reasons it hasn't worked out. A lot of the times he encounters tough luck when he pitches (defensive error or a weak hit ball that ends up an infield hit), but he just has a hard time working thru tough situations....often hits a batter or makes a wild pitch or a bad throw to 1st etc. Hopefully he overcomes those issues, and get his confidence back...his stuff looks good.
Just glad Saylor performed so well his last outing, and has some confidence now...with the stuff he has. I have a feeling we'll see plenty of Saylor and Mayhue next Tuesday.
