Rotation after break

Recommended Posts

Looks like the starter next Friday will be on schedule to pitch in Iowa on August 12. Kinda feel like Giolito is owed it after last season’s cancellation.

Giolito, Keuchel, Cease, Lynn, Rodon

Good?

I would skip Lynn from pitching against Houston, he always sucks against them. If both Lynn and Rodon pitch in the ASG, they should be on regular rest by Sunday. I'd go Giolito, Cease, Rodon, Lynn, Keuchel.

There is a DH vs MIN on Tuesday and an off day 2 days later, so the Sox could go with two regular starters for the DH or they could use Kopech for one and give everybody an extra day's rest.

I'd lean toward using Kopech.

You can't really predict who's going to be a starter for a game over a month away

Sure you can. And then you adjust as you go.

Gio doesn’t deserve shit. And it’s a game over a month away.

I will say this...while that game will be of interest for some pretty cool reasons...there are much bigger things to focus upon when lining up the rotation!

Yes, i like the Giolito, keuchel, cease for the Astros series. The doubleheader is actually Monday so lynn and Rodon could both go in that day if desired. Kopech could go then either one of those games or the Tuesday.

Couple little tweaks:

1. Spiderman, 2. Kopech (for Keuchel), 3. Dunning (trade Cease, Crochet, Sheets for Dunning and Gallo), 4. Lynn, 5. Rodon

Boom

I think the rotation will be:- 

1) Giolito

2) Keuchel

3) Cease

4) Rodon (Pitching 1st game of DH) Kopech pitching 2nd game of DH

5) Lynn

 

I reckon Rodon will be out for the lower innings game and go 5 innings or less to conserve his arm.

I’d love to add a swing guy and move to six man rotation before the playoffs. Not sure our bullpen can handle it

Normally I would kind of laugh at this, but with Cease, Rodon, Kopech, and Crochet up against some pretty serious innings history a swing man AND a long reliever to suck up innings is a really good idea.

I'm going to the game Sunday, and I honestly don't know who I'd like to see pitch.  Probably Rodon since it's against the Astros.  Normally, I'd love to be at a game when Lynn pitches, but he's struggled against the Astros.  But, if Lynn and Rodon pitch in the all star game, I could see a rotation of Giolito, Keuchel, Cease, Lynn, Rodon to start the second half.
