    Wtf. That wasn't a fucking strike. Believe me now about the Ump?

    Take him deep, Yoan.

    Giolito will be fine, he was due for a bad start.

    I have no problems with Contreras doing that. That ball was center cut, he got all of it. Tip your cap.

    I never blamed the ump for the HR. I blamed McCann. The ump thing is secondary because Lester's plate is fucking 24 inches wide and Giolito's is 16. If Giolito got half of the calls that Lester is getting on the outside none of that would have happened. I'm not complaining about the ump getting balls and strikes wrong, as much as calling his zone consistently. There are 2 different zones and that is unacceptable Sorry for any confusion. I thought the pitch selection to both Baez and Contreras was putrid. He deserved to give up runs that inning, McCann made it worse than it had to be.

    Agreed. The pitch selection to both Baez and Contreras was bad.

    I actually didn't mind him walking Rizzo. I had a huge problem with the pitch selection to Baez and Contreras. Giolito never got that call. Wtf? Don't tell me there isn't 2 different zones.

    Gameday had pitch #2 having the entire plate.

    Wrong. I looked it up he on gameday he had him struck out. Ball 1 was especially egregious. He threw him 3 strikes.

    Nope, you're wrong. The ump isn't calling anything for him that isn't center cut. He's not that wild he's barely missing.

    He got squeezed vs Rizzo and Baez I'll give you. If the ump isn't called anything but center cut pitches you're going to walk people and get lit.

    You said it yourself that McCann was doing him no favors, and that Contreras was sitting change the whole AB.

    You can't blame Gio for that inning. He was absolutely getting squeezed and McCann did him no favors. That inning was on McCann and the ump. He had to throw it down the heart of the plate to get a strike call. There are obviously 2 different zones.

    He's not looking like last year. He still struck out the side and they weren't all over him.

    There could be something to what soxfan49 is saying. Giolito's velocity is down tonight. No 96-97s like we had become used to. He's topping out at 95 tonight.

    I wonder how much the rain is affecting his grip on the ball

    He's getting squeezed

    Banuelos to IL; Fulmer recalled

    I'd rather him have the entire offseason to make adjustments to MLB pitching. He's not being challenged in AA, he's probably not going to be challenged in AAA either. Robert isn't going to learn anything else in the minors. He's ready. I'd like them to have as few question marks as possible by 2021.

    I hate the service time games they're playing with Cease and Robert. The most important thing right now is that all of the youth on the team is good at the same time. Bring up Cease after the ASB (or next week if they need a 5th starter), bring up Robert in August, Bring up Madrigal on 4/15/2020 and Vaughn as soon as he shows he's raking at AA. This offense and pitching staff needs to be firing on all cylinders by 2021. At that point they only have 3 years of Moncada and Giolito left, so they need to maximize that window and quit dicking around.
