  2. “If you have a couple of good starts, people think you’re great. And if you have a couple of bad starts, they think you’re terrible.”

    Welcome to the fickle world of the masses!

  3. Excellent interview. Very thorough and it avoided the typical clichés. Congrats to both Mr. Laurila and to Mr. Britton.

  4. These Q&As are some of the best articles on Fangraphs. Great questions and extremely informative. Keep em coming, please.

  5. Good article, but I have a problem with this: “…but only if he can recapture the worm-killing magic that led to the hype.”

    Man, that’s pretty tough. The dude would’ve had the 14th highest GB% rate among starters if he had pitched enough innings to quality – and he was just 5.2 innings away from qualifying. Sure, we expected that he could post rates in the 60’s, but let’s not get down on the kid for being among the top 15 wormburners in the majors in his age 23 season.
