View Full Version : Does Contreras' Streak Scare You?

Even though I believe Contreras is one of the best pitchers in baseball and how he's playing should win a lot more in a row, do you get worried sometimes when its his turn to pitch? I ask this because last night I was afraid he might lose his streak and get a loss. I feel ancy when I watch his games now, basically the same way when Buehrle had his streak going until that ejection. I don't want him to lose his streak. I trust he won't for a while, but does anybody else feel this way when he pitches, praying he doesn't do anything bad to lose his streak.

Yeah, I absolutely HATE it when my pitcher wins a whole bunch of games in a row.


Edit: Just givin you a hard time. I know what you mean, but the alternative is losing games, so why would I want it any other way? I get nervous anytime one of our pitchers goes out because I want them to do good, and it has nothing to do with a streak.

He's the best! A guy who can mix it up like that keep hitters off-balance can only be an asset. He may not win every game, but when he's on the bump, the odds are stacked in our favor.

I should have changed the title. It doesn't scare me as much as making me ancy everytime he pitches. I just hope for the best. Sorry. :smile:

I love that we HAVE a pitcher that has the opportunity to "lose" one game. Sure beats 3-5 on the DL with "mysterious" arm problems.

Did you see his quote today? "My team must really love me, they don't want me to lose.". That's why I love this team.

That's fantastic! Isn't it nice to know that players love being on the White Sox? Eat your heart out Mr. Steinbrenner!:smile:

To tell you the truth, I've begun to see him as almost invincible, and even if he doesn't get a decision, I feel like any game he pitches is an automatic win. I felt the same way yesterday even when we were down by a couple.

I think I would feel that way if a White Sox hitter were to close in on Dimaggio's hitting streak, but I don't think Contreras's streak is a big deal. He'll lose a game eventually. What's more important is that he keeps pitching well enough to keep the team in games and keep pressure off the bullpen. Doing that will help the team win the division regardless of whether he loses a game here and there.

This is like getting a good buzz and dwelling on the come-down rather than just enjoying the buzz.

Maybe they should just shut JC down for the rest of the year to guarantee he doesn't lose a game.

I agree and that's why I loved the contract he received. It doesn't matter that he's probably closer to 44 than 34. He's a machine. He's probably in the best shape of any of our pitchers, despite his age.

It reminds me of Carlos Lee's hitting streak a couple of years ago. It just adds to the experience of watching Jose pitch. All streaks are going to end, and Jose's going to have a game where he slips up or the opposing pitcher is going to have a night. It doesn't hurt that Contreras is usually facing a second, third, or fourth starter from the other team.

I love the way the team picks him up, though. It's so nice to have an offense!

I may be wrong but, I think what the original poster means is, That Jose is on fire right now and everyone hopes that his streak lasts for as long as possible but, no one is perfect and it has to end sometime. Jose will cool off at some point this season.

I'm not saying he's going to lose a bunch of ballgames either. He'll just cool down to a great pitcher instead of a super-human one like he is right now.

My point is, what if he cools off later in the season/in the playoffs when we need him the most? The longer the streak lasts the longer it puts of this "cooling off period."

If it came down to it, I'd rather see him on fire like this in September/October. I think it scares some people because it has to end sometime. Hopefully it doesn't end in Sept./October.

Sure it will probably end eventually, but I look forward to Jose's starts more than anyone else in baseball because when he has everything working hes truly unhittable.


Have no fear enjoy the ride

Jose showed a lot of emotion after being pulled while trailing. He seems to care about the streak.

That's good. He's trying to win every start. We've had too many pitchers who would go out there and not give a damn. It may have cost us the playoffs in 2003.
