Guillermo Turnbow 2

In the month of July, Guillermo Mota has faced 17 batters and given up 8 runs. He entered tonight's game with a July ERA of 18.00 and it went up to 24.00. He's getting some very bad breaks from the defense, but he's also throwing a lot of batting practice pitches right over the heart of the plate. The Brewers are going to need him down the stretch and it seems like he's totally out of gas right now. At his age, I wonder if a trip to the DL would do him good. If he went on tomorrow, he would be eligible to come back on his 35th birthday.

UPDATE: I see that someone is taking a little harder stance on the issue than I am.
