And some thought that it had to be the Bucco pitching coaches who couldn't get consistency from him . . .

The Buccos did get consistency from Ollie. It was just that he was consistently bad....

It really doesn't seem long ago that the names "Oliver Perez, Randy Johnson and Cy Young" were all used in the same sentence.

Of his 55 starts as a Pirate 30 of them came during his stellar 2004 season where he posted an ERA below 3.00 and struck out 11 batters for every 9 innings pitched. During the other 25 starts he posted an ERA just below 6.00. Sounds rather inconsitent to me.

I think that Willton was making a joke . . . and commenting on OP's disastrous ending in Pittsburgh.

His problem has to be his unwillingness to change what he is doing. What things aren't going right you have to listen to the coaches and change your stuff and he wont. He would rather kick around a laundry cart.
