Fair enough. I just expect this board to judge players on their own merits, not on something out of their control. Not to mention Anderson Espinoza started this year on the 7 day DL with forearm tightness and minor ankle discomfort. He should be good to come off the DL today and it was mostly precautionary. Sounds like Pomeranz opening the year on the DL with forearm issues.Isn't the "hatred" linked more to giving up Espinoza for him? If you give up The Next Great Starting Pitcher you have to be getting back a currently great one, right? Not just a pretty good, controllable, cheap but frequently injured and not clearly established one. Or so the thinking/kvetching goes.
