How messed up is Drew Smyly?

Forty years calling Major League Baseball games qualifies Rays play-by-play man Dewayne Staats as an expert — at least an expert that Joe gives credence.

During this quality Tuesday appearance on WDAE-AM 620 below, Staats is rather adamant that something is physically wrong with Drew Smyly.

Good listen.

    Reason to be optimistic next year. Blake Snell, giving up 1 hit in that hitter’s park, even without his curveball. He will be a building block for 2017 ! Tim Beckham, not so much. What a disappointment ! A # 1 pick that came with attitude problems. First he was run out of town for using illegal drugs (I think for a year) and then got hurt (For another year). You would have thought that when he got the opportunity to get back on the field, he’d give it his all. All we got was a lazy, out of shape, oily discharge. Didn’t the Rays do any due diligence ? This mope didn’t go from being a boy scout to a hairy turd over night.

    Tim Beckham for President ! 5 for 5 ! That makes 1 great game versus 92 shitty ones. Especially the one where he struck out 3 times on 10 pitches. All swinging.

    Yeah Darth, I keep thinking back to that Beckham draft where the Rays could have got Buster Posey or Eric Hosmer but instead went cheap and took Timmy! Bad deceision after bad decision by the Tampa Bay brain trust!
