Jamie Walker

I'm surprised at the lack of support Walker is getting around here. Yes, he's been miserable for the last month, but that's a pretty short amount of time compared to his long career as a very good major league reliever.

Jamie Walker is going through a bad stretch, and he goes through a bad stretch every year, just like every other pitcher.

I think he'll be fine. I cherrypicked a small sample from every year of Jamie's career that Baseball-Reference has data for:

If a pitcher is "done" after 7 poor innings, then Jamie Walker has been "done" many times in his career.
