He has the pitches to dominate in the majors, but I just dont get why he can translate this to the Majors???
Because he allows any negative media and pressure to get to him, which ends up affecting his pitching. It's as simple as that. He doesn't have to deal with any of that in Indy, so he can go out there focused and relaxed, and you see the results. When he gets back here, he needs to do the same thing - tune out the media and the fans and just pitch. He'd be much better off for it.
