Default In depth piece: Giolito breakout?

This piece looks at the possibility that Giolito is ready to blossom. Enjoy.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."

Very nice. As painful as things have been, overall the season is promising in terms of what matters which is the performance/prospects of young players rather than the W-Ls(although the way they have lost has been basically demoralizing).

If GIolito maintains his last couple starts, Lopez can get back to what he was doing a couple starts ago, and Moncada/Anderson/Eloy maintain (even though Yoan and Tim are slumping in May so far), it will be a hugely successful season independent of record.

(But that said, hoping for some better pitching and Yoan/Tim to get back in gear which IMO can lead to .500.)
"You don't quit. You don't go home before it's time. You don't come out of a game, even if you are in pain and feel as if you can't go one more step"
"Never give up, Never, never, never give up."

I hope this is right but I remember reading a similar piece at the end of spring training last year and then another one in the second half. So, I hope he's figured something out but I am going to need to see more evidence.

Go Sox!!!

Itís amazing to behold the muscle memory of a professional athlete. That plot of changeup release points boggles the mind.

I love Gio, he is one of my favorite players, but I worry sometimes he gets himself into analysis paralysis
