Hahaha. 

Hilarious. 

Would be even better if the Dinosaur was replaced by Eeyore with the raincloud over his head. 

Can anyone make that? I'd love that to be my signature. It would be hilarious. I don't know how to do it myself.

Wasn't sure where to put this because it's media related but I thought it would be OK here. Sports Business Daily came out with RSN ratings for the first half of the season and this should come as no surprise but the Sox are next to last (Both Fan Graphs and ESPN had stories with ratings in previous seasons...) Next to last is actually an improvement as they were dead last the previous two seasons.

"On the other end of the coin, the Oakland A’s and Chicago White Sox remain baseball’s lowest-rated teams. A’s ratings on NBC Sports California are up 12% to a 0.67 rating this season, while White Sox ratings are down 1% to a 0.83 on NBC Sports Chicago, possibly representing the absolute low point for that franchise’s ratings."

I guess it doesn't matter that much, but why is Rodon getting the 5th turn in the rotation? 

He needs to pitch after missing so much time

Slick Rick Hahn: You still holding any Lucas Gioltio stock as we enter the 2nd half or has that ship sailed? 
Keith Law: I’ve seen enough signs of progress in the last six weeks to still think he’s going to be a good big-league starter.

Interesting from Law. 

His last two starts before the break were downright encouraging, and one was against the defending champs.

We have seen some pretty solid progress from him over the last month or so.  The good news is that his ERA/WHIP has come down every single month so far this season, so he is making progress as the season moves along.

With 65 games left, he’d probably get 13 starts either way. Tyler Danish is destined to start game 162.

I wouldn't listen to Law on Gio, at all.  Law had him way ahead of everybody else back when he was a prospect and has never let go of that projection.  Law had Gio the top prospect in the game two years ago.  LUOLZ.

Kopech pitching on cable right now. Three plus scoreless and a few hits.

Paw Sox with Brandon Phillips, Adam Lind and Mike Olt on their roster.

It's almost like Lucas is a young kid learning how to pitch.

 

Frankly, much like fathom, I was glad to just see his velocity come back. Erratic pitching is a lot easier to stomach at 95 than 91.
