Most teams have a 5th starter that isn't very good; ours just happens to have a Cy Young on his shelf which makes it awkward to do anything about it except ride it out and hope he becomes that guy again

Also Smith is on the DL now; Reymin Guduan is coming up to probably not be very good

Maybe but Guduan could at least fill a spot for a while and might even be entertaining! That is at least worth the minor inconvenience of not having someone else.

Maybe Guduan figured something out in the last few months but his line from last year is 16 innings that featured 24 hits, 12 walks and 14 earned runs

He only gave up one homer so that's a bright spot I guess?

3.10 ERA with 10ER in 29IP, so better than last year I guess?

Still, thatís a 3.10 ERA against AAA hitters.

What are you, a White Sox fan? Hopefully you will be entertained A LITTLE but I also get your point.

Onward to pie!


I wanted to get snarky with the Cubs posters about Heyward's slash since he returned from injury so I decided to look at Gattis's stats since that same date. Heyward has put up an .876 OPS since May 18th with a .338/.361/.515 slash. Gattis? .935 with a .274/.338/.597 slash

Heyward's BABIP is an unsustainable .349 since then. Gattis? .229

Gattis's numbers are actually underperforming over the last month somehow

There was an article in either The Ringer or The Athletic right before he started this recent tear that outright said "he has to start hitting or get replaced" and drat if he didn't read it I guess

Last year his slash was .263/.311/.457 and his OPS+ was 109, this year even including his horrific March/April it's .233/.296/.444 and OPS+ is 107. His May this year was .281/.342/.609 for an OPS+ of 155. June is significantly off that so far (his BABIP is .179 this month) but its enough to nearly make him the hitter he was last year.

If nothing else he's not killing us anymore

Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.


I was the biggest Gattis hater. Glad he is making me eat my words.

Reddick, shape up buddy!

I missed the game, but it appears we crushed the Aís two innings in and my best friend Gattis crushed another baseball?

Yeah it was 10-0 going into the third and it ruled


Is it wrong I'm kinda mad that we gave up five runs though?

Kind of. 3 were a HR off Cole who had a human start for once, and Guduan ate 2 innings for us and gave up the only non-Cole run so I'm well satisfied with that.

Hopefully this doesn't signal anything weird going forward for Cole but that's the only thing I'd worry about.

I want Tony Kemp batting 9th every game. He's like Aoki when he wasn't awful!

So far it seems like Kemp has earned a long term spot on the roster. I kinda want our team to be 50/50 split between spunky tiny guys and giant beefylads.

I like this thread (it got me to post on baseball stuff - even though I suck at it) - but I buy the argument from the main thread - should we shut this down and take discussion to the main thread?
