I have been saying since spring training that Tomlin should have been the opening day #5 starter, which Carlos Carrasco in the pen. I get why they made the decision that they did, but I got really tired of so many people talking smack about Tomlin. He was a really good pitcher in 2011, and in 2012 was injured. But people really loved to focus on 2012 like it was him regressing…when it was just him battling some elbow issues that would result him needing TJ surgery. I think what he is doing now, pitching 6 or 7 innings, keeping the walks and HR in check is what we can expect for the next couple seasons. He is everything you could ask for in a #4 or #5 pitcher.
