Is diversity in baseball a threat to the new membership club?

The Mariners found their guy in Jerry Dipoto, and he found his guy in former catcher and Angels executive Scott Servais. The Phillies found their guy in that same Angels front office, hiring Dartmouth grad Matt Kentak. The Angels found in Billy Eppler their guy to replace those guys. The Brewers made fresh-faced Harvard man David Stearns their fresh-faced Harvard man.

Two-pitch pitchers can succeed, but not when they work like Taijuan Walker has.

So far the Mariners have been one of the season's biggest disappointments. At 15-17, they sit closer to last place than first—a position echoed by their -13 run differential, the second worst in the division. Naturally, Seattle's roster houses numerous underachievers. Felix Hernandez and Nelson Cruz have been excellent, but haven't outweighed the slow starts of Robinson Cano, Austin Jackson, and Fernando Rodney, nor the struggles of Mike Zunino, Brad Miller, Kyle Seager, Dustin Ackley, James Paxton, and . . . well, just about every non-royal homegrown player on the roster.

Taijuan Walker's performance might be the least fulfilling of the drafted-and-developed bunch. After six turns through the rotation, Walker has the highest DRA among big-league starting pitchers. His Game Scores have been (in order): 7, 29, 60, 67, 12, and 49—or more bad than good, and more scattered than fixed. Old stats tell the same tale. Walker has not flourished like a cockatoo in a birdbath; instead he's languished to the point of allowing 27 runs and 39 hits in 27 2/3 innings.
