What's Wrong With Gorzelanny?

I agree with Wilton - it's time to get Tom Gorzelanny to a doctor. The velocity isn't there, and the control certainly isn't there. His stats so far this season are astounding - 22.1 innings, 13 strikeouts and twenty-two walks, plus an 8.46 ERA. Those are so bad they can't possibly be flukes; there's something seriously wrong. At any rate, he's hurting the team - at the very least, why wouldn't the Pirates at least skip his turn in the rotation a couple times, give him some bullpen sessions to sort things out, and let John Van Benschoten pitch for a while?

And yes, I just advocated replacing Tom Gorzelanny in the rotation with John Van Benschoten. This team is in trouble.
