There's a reason not many Rule 5 draftees survive on a Major League roster all season, they're usually just not that good or not nearly ready. Case in point- David Herndon, today's loser. Many relievers have high ERAs early in the season due to a bad outing or two and limited innings, so 7.04 isn't anything abysmal. Delve into the stats and you will find horribleness though, like a 2.61 WHIP. Now, before someone goes and cries "unlucky" on me, I will just kindly flip them the two-fisted middle-finger salute and headbutt them into understanding things my way. See, Herndon has allowed 18 hits and 2 walks in only 7.2 innings pitched. That's bad, no defending it. He's out of his league. When Brad Lidge returns, it should be Herndon going to the minors or back to the Angels if they want him. The David Herndon experiment has failed, so please end it.
