Hmmm... But his WHIP hasn't been bad though -- nothing special, but not exactly bad. I doubt he'll hurt anyone's WHIP much today, especially against these limping Chisox. Problem w/ him has been the HRs in most cases (especially on the road) and a tendency to give that one big bad inning in some games. But his overall WHIP has been ok though way below par for him.
I don't think he's put together 2 quality starts in a row yet this season...... and his last start was about as close to quality as he has been.
Huh? How do you define quality start? I know people debate about the 3 runs in 6IP definition, but Big Unit did have 2 straight where he allowed <=2 runs just before the most recent 2 bad games. If you go by the loose definition of 3 runs in 6IP, you'll find quite a few times where he strung together 2 or 3 games like that.
Anyway, for me, if he only goes 3 runs in 6IP and gets the loss, that's a bad thing since that's a below average start in my points league.
Well, looks like Konerko's playing, and I've decided to just give Big Unit another try today. Hopefully, Konerko's not quite 100% and won't go yard on RJ.
