Tough loss. In other news, I can't wait for Carson Fulmer to go away for good.

Lopez isnít much better thatís for sure! He has regressed this year and at this point he can hardly be counted on more than a number 5 at best!

Lopez is almost consistent with his inconsistency of late alternating good and bad outings punctuating an inconsistent season.

Maybe some believe Lopez will simply find it as Giolito did, that Cease will just fine it, as Giolito did. Between the surgeries and the inconsistencies, I don't see this rebuild developing anything close to a solid starting rotation.

Living up here in Wisconsin, i also follow the Brewers . they must be kicking themselves right now that they didn't go get Jose Abreu . another possibly prodigious run producer in Jimenez, who has 8 rbi's in the last 2 games . count me as one of those people that is worried about the pitching next year . a lot of things have to go right for a strong staff to develop.

Lopez is fine for a 5. He's Jekyll and Hyde. Just can't be slotting him any higher than that (at this point) if you intend to compete.

It will all come down to consistency with him. If he can figure it out he's a #3 or higher in terms of stuff.

I never liked the idea of slotting arms by numbers, like #3 or #5. Get the best 5 pitchers you can get with the resources you have available. Even if we call Giolito a #1 now, does that mean we should set our sights lower on a free agent acquisition? What if we got MadBum and Giolito, and the Mets want to cash in on Thor before he loses more value? Do we pass up the chance to go get him because of the presence of other #1s on the roster?

The Astros had a need for starting pitching at the deadline. Even though Verlander and Cole were already there, they went for the jugular and got the best arm on the market. The White Sox should do the same whenever possible.

There is no such thing as having too much quality pitching.

The numbers for me are just a way of saying "he's got better than average stuff, awesome stuff or average to below average stuff".

He kind of reminds of me of Edwin Jackson in that you can tell by the first inning what kind of night he will have.

Either Reynaldo Lopez just gave up another home run, or I was having a napmare.

Carson is maddening with his command. I mean, just spin the ball in the zone to get ahead of the hitter and trust your ****. Still, I’m not ready to give up on him. This article pretty much sums up how I feel about him.
