This is a move I really don't like for the 2nd starter spot, but in reality it's probably not much worse or better than any of the other bums.

His numbers were actually better than I thought last year. Oh well, hope he’s the 2nd arm we get.

hahah

I was literally about to post the exact same thing. His numbers the past two years are WAY better than I remembered. In my mind he pitched 5 games for the Yankees and gave up 50 runs. In reality, he pitched zero games for them lol and was actually solid in Milw.

Felt like he was wild all the times I watched him, but he really wasn’t

His FIP's the last three years:

4.04, 4.16, 3.93.

He's actually fine as the second acquisition. I would have preferred a higher ceiling younger guy, but I get banking on the safer veteran to fill a hole for a few months.

I'm excited to finally see him pitch in a Sox uniform.  No problem with this as one of the moves for SP.

We could do far worse from a hopefully fifth starter

I like the move, as Gonzalez is probably the best backend starter still on the market and gives us a left hander in the rotation. Should not be more than a reasonable one year deal.

Nice - totally cool with Gio as our #5 for the first couple months. 

I agree.  As a 5th starter this is a very good signing.
