Well that's good news. A healthy Contreras changes the outlook on the rotation a ton.

Contreras will probably wind up being the ace of the staff for the rest of the season.

I sure as hell hope so. They need him to be what we all know and have seen he can be for the rest of the year.

Guillen is quoted in the article as saying Contreras looks his best since 2004? :scratch:

I doubt that little bit of time off is going to make THAT big a difference. Here's to hoping, though.

If he's throwing so great, how about just skipping the unnecessary rehab assignment and get to winning baseball games for the White Sox?

Agreed. If he looks good, pitch him Sunday in Kansas City.

I heard he only walked three and gave up two long balls, a marked improvement!

Contreras came here in 2004. He's saying Contreras looks his best since he's been here.

I don't buy it.

This guys a headcase.. I have no confidence in any of this. We've heard this noise before as it relates to him.

He went from "I feel fine I dont know whats wrong" to the DL in like 3 days.
You will never know whats youre getting from him.

He's as Bi-polar as Pitchers come.

You can say that again. Jose with pinpoint control, a mid-90s moving fastball popping and disappearing forkball would be like getting a new starter at the deadline.

(Contreras of high 80s fastball, inconsistent command and flat breaking ball before he went on the DL, on the other hand? Not so much.)

Wasn't Jose's injury the result of getting hit by a batted ball in the first Cubs series?

Maybe he just needed a little time off to get that healed. He wasn't too bad before that happened.

Guess Jose wasnt a headcase when he won 17 straight decisions in 05-06.
Bottom line is that he pitches bad when he is hurt.
If he is back to the health he had in April and May..we are back in business.

What were Ozzie and Coop suppose to say?

"He's done and we can't trade him. It's offically time for all Sox fans to jump off that ledge."


Do you think any Cub fan had confidence hearing about Wood and Pryor's "simulated" games?
