Scott Olsen 2.0

Scott Olsen has been discussed before, but to revisit the theme discussed, is Scott Olsen to crazy competitive to be a starter long-term?

Take Sunday, for instance. He rocked and rolled through the first eight innings on the mound, refused to give up, feeling he was the best pitcher to get the final four outs. Even after McLouth homered, the game was still well in hand, with only one out need to secure the win. Olsen, though, acted as if he had just blown the game.

Before he can become a consistent pitcher, Olsen needs to learn that the game will almost never be won strictly on his terms, regardless of how intimidating or dominating he is on the mound or even with the bat.
