    8 scoreless IP for Charlotte tonight.

    1.59 ERA in 8 starts at AAA. 2.23 ERA in 14 starts at AA.

    Combined just under 1 K per inning and just under a 1.00 WHIP.

    I love his numbers.

    Any chance he contends with Rienzo for a rotation spot next season, also completely blocking Axelrod out of the picture?

    Sale
    Quintana
    Santiago
    Danks
    Rienzo/Johnson

    Rocking the 4 lefties. :rock:

    Johnson is higher rated than Rienzo and would've gotten the call, but he was dinged up recently. He'll probably get a couple of starts in Sept. before being penciled into the rotation for next year.

    I suspect that Hahn will try to move one of the lefties during the off-season as part of a package for a bat.

    Or they could try a six-man rotation again next year in order to include Rienzo and Johnson with the four LH's.

    Why the fuck would they do that? :deepsigh:

    I didn't say they should. It's just an idea, plus they used it during Buerhle's last couple of years before Peavy's 2010 injury and when they traded Edwin Jackson for the immortal Jacob Frasor.

    I don't see that every happening in a situation other than one of a significant injury plague. Although, its definitely not a bad thing to have more than 1 potential fifth starter.

    Remember that year we couldn't find one for shit? Was that '03?

    03 was one of those years. Another was '96 which was coincidentally (as in not at all) another year they blew a winnable playoff berth.

    Might as well see what he has to offer the major league team. Gotta think they'll be starting to rest a guy like Sale who will presumably be pretty damn close to 200 IP in just two more starts.

    Or just let him go 8 IP for 7 or 8 more start cause fuck it.

    Leesman (LHP) and Anderson (C) already had been promoted. They needed another C because Flowers is having shoulder surgery for a problem that has been bothering him for at least a year.

    Has Flowers used the excuse that "he fought through the pain for the team" shit yet?

    Yup. He didn't want to make the least out of the opportunity to replace AJ.

    Welcome to the Sox.

    Yeah, he's going to miss the two better teams he's played for this year. :rocker:

    ^ It didn't go much better for him after that last update, but at least he was showing some good signs...

    I was wondering why he hasn't pitched since 8/12, then I found out he was placed on the DL at some point. :dunno:

    Yeah... I'd be interested in seeing if he was dealing with some kind of consistent injury this season. To go from what he did last year, including some impressive showings with the Sox, to this year is pretty baffling.

    Or maybe he was just shut down for sucking so much. :dunno:

    It's almost certainly some kind of undisclosed arm issue like Jones.

    Healthy young pitchers don't usually lose command and velocity overnight.

    One game at Charlotte but hopefully he's getting back on track:

    3 IP 2 H 0 BB 3 K

    Reports are that his velocity is back up.

    Rodon and Johnson to eventually replace Danks and Noesi to save the season? The offense needs to get going to have any chance though.

    Another strong start tonight. Time to fish or cut bait on Smajddffga's contact extension.

    Pulled from his AAA start today, so look for a call up on the 1st and a start shortly thereafter.

    Let's hope the SOX mix it up in September and let's see what some guys can do.

    While we're at it, let's hope Robin turns in his resignation letter and Adam LaRoche jumps off a bridge.

    Great numbers at AAA.

    Hopefully 2014 was an aberration and he can slide into the rotation next year.

    Let's see in 2 days if he is a MLB, or AAAA pitcher. I hope the first; as it would solve so many issues going into next year as well as long term.
