It seems he's getting it together. But the question is, where does he rank amongst Peavy, Willis, Kip Wells, Kinney and Webb?

I watched him pitch tonight. He dodged a lot of bullets. Being a pitcher myself most of my life I feel I can say so. :-)

All of his pitches were belt high. He is soooooo lucky he didn't get ripped.

I wouldn't go and pick him up yet. He should have been torn apart tonight the way he was throwing. Mid to high 80's and belt high. Pure MEAT balls over the plate.

Those are home run derby pitches.

Maybe they looked like meat balls on t.v., but with 10Ks, 1 ER, and 1 Hit, in 7.1 innings, I'm inclined to think that they couldn't have been. A dude can't get that lucky.

Look at who he was facing though. There are AAA teams that are hitting better than the White Sox this season.

I'm not buying it. The White Sox aren't the Tigers, and this performance was on the road. I only have two concerns: (1) he needs to get those walks down; and (2) 123 pitches is a lot for a rookie. Otherwise, Foppert is a fine middle of the rotation guy. Do you start him against every team? No. But against middle-to-bottom teams in MLB, I wouldn't hesitate to stick him in my lineup.

Sick of those who are spineless.
