6/17 G/T White Sox v Houston 7:10 Chgo Time lift off

Recommended Posts

Wait, you're telling me that Giolito threw Gurriel a slider that . . . sucked? 

When you're talking about $100 million contracts for starting pitchers, I tend to like the guys who can throw more than 2 pitches.

This has been a 3-year problem for Giolito. He can't control any kind of effectively moving breaking ball. That just isn't gonna cut it.

It really wasn't like this last year. He was also the only starter who actually gave them something close to an acceptable start in the playoffs too. 

If I remember correctly he didn't even get through 5 innings and gave up 4 runs. 

That's not close to acceptable.

You should see what the other guys did.

Gio owned by Houston

More like the White Sox pwned by Houston, especially in Houston.

Dusty Baker has a schematic advantage over Tony La Russa.

4.28 ERA is not going to get a premium trade package in return like it did with Quintana…

I wonder how big of a contract he gets after next year

Just checked the score.  I hate to be a jerk but I'm getting a little sick of our Ace not stepping up when we need him to do so.

Has Gio even thrown a change up, odd choice to scrap it early in this game

Kopech is the Ace. Not Giolito. Not Cease. 

Cease is turning into Rich Harden.

Gio definitely isn’t an Ace this year

I really want another full scale rebuild. I want it torn down to the studs. Watching young kids is better than this.

That’s what Celtics’ fans tried to tell themselves yesterday…

Apparently one of the two white Sox wins against Houston last year was a Giolito complete game.

I hate that we basically aren't competitive with the Astros in Houston. There was 1 competitive game in Houston last year and that was cause Rodon had a no hitter through 6 innings.
