Cmon Carlos!

It’s only the fourth inning, but Carlos Carrasco is out-pitching Ubaldo. Carrasco has the arm to be a good pitcher, but so far he hasn’t proved that he has a brain to be a pitcher. If he can be turned into a viable starter, then the Cliff Lee trade is no longer an unmitigated disaster.

And by the way, Ubaldo gave up a three run homer to the other Carlos (Santana) in the first inning.
