5/10 - White Sox @ Rangers Game Thread

Recommended Posts

It sort of seems like you want Rodon to struggle.

I really, really do not. I think long term he's gonna be a very good 2, but the Sox have higher aspiration in 2016 than "develop Carlos Rodon".

I'm going to keep saying until you people stroke my ego and acknowledge it:

 

1 Sale

2 Q (but really a 1)

3

4 Latos

5 Miguel Gonzalez/Carlos Rodon

 

There's a glaring hole on this team.

I agree with you. I would say he is a number 4 though, with Latos out best number 3. Everytime I see Rodon pitch he has very poor command, and gets behind in the count more often than not. Wastes a lot of pitches, and when he misses his spot he really misses. However when he hits his spot, he definitely hits it. It just feels like every hitter gets into a 2-1 or 3-1 count though.

Can't walk a struggling LH. Rodon has so much to work on

 

He's lost his dominant slider by seemingly not using it enough

Keeps throwing 92 right down the plate

Slider is flat too. Where is the 96 he was throwing out of college?

Rodon has been garbage.

I wouldn't say garbage quite yet. I would say ineffective however.

What happened to Rodon? Such a disappointment so far this year.

I believe its all in Rodon's head. Whenever anything goes wrong behind him he immediately falls apart.

 

Sale rubbing off on him

Rodon has not looked the part lately. Lack of control is really concerning.

Rodon has been pitching like a guy starting his 30th big league game. He'll be fine.

I think he will get better as the season progresses like at the end of last season
