Jenks has looked nasty the last two days. Maybe the shoulder just needed a little WD-40?

GAS.

At least his speed picked up, I was worried for a bit but its good to see him back in form again or at least close to it

Jenks didn't look too hot yesterday. Crede bailed him out twice.

Today - different story!!

It takes time to build up arm strength. You can't just walk on a mound and hit 100 on the gun after a winter off.

The strange thing with Bobby is that his control gets better as his velocity increases.

I like Jenks. I really hope he does well. Still, I remember the home opener in 2003 when Billy Koch, after looking awful in his debut in Kansas City against the Royals, struck out the Tigers in order in the ninth for the save.

Some of us thought Koch was back. We were wrong.

According to today's Cubune, he still doesn't have the gas yet and maxed out at 96 on the gun yesterday. I haven't seen him on tv this year, is that true?

According to whitesox.com he maxed out at like 98 or so yesterday but was consistently at 95-96. In Kansas City he was consistently at 98-99mph. I think the whole velocity thing in ST was overblown.

There was absolutely no evidence that Jenks had lost his "groove". It was through Spring Training, in which absolutely no one knew how long it would take him to get his velocity back, except the Sox and himself. It was total speculation.

On the other hand, Koch totally lost it, and it was apparant by comparing season to season.

It's almost like no one wants to see Jenks succeed, and it pisses me off, show them up Big Bobby.

Koch just sucked all around. Maybe he wore his socks to high and affected his balance? :?:

I feel like Jenks will always be one of those guys who has to pitch himself into shape. Yeah, i'd like to see him not come in 25 pounds overweight (and by overweight I mean more than last year) but in terms of getting his velocity up yeah i think thats just gonna have to come with him loggin innings

i'll tell ya what... say what you want about billy koch, and it would probably be accurate, but he was a stand up guy, took the heat and responsibility for his poor performances. it was a refreshing thing, in the day and age of primodonna athletes passing the blame, and making excuses.

Ya, that is one thing I will say for Billy Koch was that he took the heat and did not pass the blame on others like a majority of ML baseball players do. He made me sweat though. Jenks is looking good and is coming to the form that he needs to be an effective closer. He just needs to continue on locating his pitches effectively and he will be alright.

It's gotta be Jenks. He seems to have his groove back. Hopefully, this won't turn into another Shingo story.
