"He Was Still Throwing The Ball Great"

Apparently, Jim Tracy has already figured out what to put on the headstone at the end of the season. If Erickson was still throwing the ball great, how do you throw the ball badly?

UPDATE: I'll take this opportunity to again repeat that Steve Henson is the only writer at the Times with a clue. Erickson was lucky through the first six, he was obviously tiring, he was obviously wild and hanging pitches, and rather than take the cheap way out (like Plaschke would have) and obsess over Choi's defense in the eighth or Buddy Carlyle (which got their due mention -- they didn't help), he focused on the key issue -- Tracy put us in a hole.
