In response to ma6dragon9's comment:
So...you say if he was doing well, fans would want to "trade or release" him.
Exploring trade option for Buccholz is the nature of the game. Once upon a time Johan Santana, at the top of his game, almost cost Ellsbury AND Lester, or Buccholz.
The first thread is a poster asking what people think he(buccholz) is.
The second is a single post thread that got no traction because, obviously, people didn't agree.
The third: same author as the second, same number of responses - 0.
The 4th: different author, still no responses.
Did you actually look, or just grab headlines that fit your comment?
To throw a blanket statement like you did, and then use those as examples are incredibly weak.
No, I'm saying if we had a rookie that started 0-2 with a 7.15 ERA, and then had a season like Verlander did in '08, when he had a 11-17 record and an ERA of 4.84, there would be a number of fans her that would want him gone.
It's not that hard.
You want to pretend otherwise? Go right ahead...
A blanket statement would be something like "nobody".
You were wrong, you'll live...
If you'd said nobody with any sense wants any pitchers traded, I would've agreed with you.
