Lucas Giolito Chicago White Sox

I'll be happy if he earns a buck this year. I need the innings.

And an AL leading 12 passed balls.

Remember his classic rain delay antic. Sammy Stewart mocked Jim Palmer modeling in an underwear ad.

Hard to see how you justify keeping him at $10.

Mike Dean TMU2009

He's sitting on my farm right now. I have until September 11 at noon to activate him unless he's sent to the minors between now and then (he won't be). That's an easy call.

The difficult call is whether or not I should keep him at $10 next year. I probably won't.

At least I also got Devers in my farm draft this year.

Catching isn't the issue. His framing metrics this year are positive - and the scouting reports back this up. He also has a good arm/can throw runners out. It's his game calling/pitch selection. that is in question.

So I was intrigued and pulled the boxscore... John Wettleland pitched the last 6 innings for Montreal and got the win.

Not in today's baseball....but I digress.

28 years ago today, Rick Dempsey hit a HR off Dennis Martinez in the 22nd inning and the Dodgers beat the Expos 1-0.

I remember that game...Hershiser vs. Pascual Perez, they both pitched great.

And the only time a mascot was ejected from an MLB game (Youppi deserved a better fate).

The Dodgers seem to have that magic this year...despite the injuries, they just continue to win games late. It just feels like it's their year.

He can hit....too bad he cannot catch. That's the issue the Yankees need to deal with.

Doug Fister Boston Red Sox

Ha! I activated Giolito in CBS too, Alex.

I dropped Fister in my home AL a couple of weeks back. I knew he still had some good starts in that right arm when I FAAB'd him.

Gary Sanchez New York Yankees

A single, two homers, four driven in, two scored last night in Comerica.

He can hit.

Doug Fister Boston Red Sox

I activated Giolito, reserved Fister for games yestedray.

I can't quite quit you, Stage Two.

Yoan Moncada Chicago White Sox

A pair of doubles yesterday, continuing in the two-hole. He still hasn't earned a nickel in either format but it feels like he's finding his mojo.

Thanks for being my eyes, even though it's painful. Great description.

. . . and Gibson promptly pitches his ass off.  This game.

Mike Dean TMU2009

An interesting day (for me) in NL2 ...

So they left him in.  Mauer doubled over Garica's head in left.  It might have been catchable had Garcia ever seen the ball.  Then Rosario hit a HR.  Oh, let's get someone up in the pen.  It's kind of incredible how foolish managers are.  He's scheduled to go 100 pitches.  Let's ruin his good outing by sending him out for the 6th to make sure he gets his work in.  Kid is 23, had a rough go in the majors last year.  Was traded.  Lost his top prospect ranking.  Started the year off terribly.  Maybe keeping his confidence up would be part of the plan of bringing him along.  Nope.  It's not.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed

Only 81 pitches through 5 IP, twice through the lineup.  Two solo HR against.  Two singles.  No walks. 3 Ks.  He looked like he was laboring from the first inning.  Either he's very tight because it's his debut, or he is a high stress pitcher who just is never relaxed on the mound.  He's hard to watch for that reason.  He doesn't have fine touch on his fastball, which looks like it is a problem long-term if he can't gain some more control.  His breaking stuff is over the top, so it's more of a downward plane, but Steve Stone noted in the 5th that he lost the feeling for it and it broke more sideways.

We will see if he comes out for the 6th, but I would shut him down and consider it a successful debut if I were the White Sox.

32% and 3.3% for last year.
