Most dominant power pitcher in the game? The kid is good, but he isn't that good, yet.

And its clear you didn't watch his starts towards the end of his season. Not that dominant. It was the kids first full season in the majors, coming off TJ surgery at that, sitting him was the right decision.

And spare me "If you sat him in the middle of the season to save him..." crap. You don't break in a young pitcher into his first full season in the majors by sitting him half way threw it,, and then start him back up. Ah nevermind. Pointless to argue.
