"Full blown Tomko territory"

A Giants Win hat tip to Paulie at Give Em Some Stankeye for his very apt description of the lousiness that is Todd Wellemeyer in post titled The Five Stage of Petco Park Death. Here's part of the post --

All right, let's just get this out of the way. Todd Wellemeyer sucks. Every Giants fan in the world was willing to put their better judgement aside in hopes that Wellemeyer would grab the fifth starter job by the barrel and reign fiery hell upon with NL hitters. As Rod Stewart's "Reason To Believe" was played repeatedly on iPods in Giants fans' living rooms everywhere, Wellemeyer's pitching history was subsequently ignored and his poor stuff was glossed over.Well, after three starts of batting practice, Wellemeyer is in full blown Tomko territory. The guy was marketed as a control pitcher, but he's walked 11 batters in 14 innings.

I saw that too made me laugh, he is moving in that direction.

I tried to drink the kool-aid on him but it tasted like the persperation of Livan Hernandez. Yuck.
