OK, 3 starts, 3 losses.

When do we become concerned?

Not quite yet, but I haven't been impressed with him dating back to last season when he went on the DL. When he's hitting his spots, mainly when he's getting the low strike calls, he's tough as hell to hit...when he's not, well...

Look at it this way though: Keuchel is basically our worst starting pitcher right now. That's how good our rotation is! Having Verlander and Cole sure does make a difference!

He is a FA after this year, and at this point I won't worry if he isn't here next season. By that time, hopefully Whitley or some of the other arms in the minors have emerged, and I have faith in Luhnow to find pitching via trade or FA as well.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

Yeah, I think that FA is looming over him. I expect him to shake it off, but I don’t know if he’ll get back to Cy Young level.
