Through 4 innings, he had a good line: 4 inn, 2 h, 1 er, 2 bb, 3 k, while throwing ~66 pitches.
The 5th was not good, as it went:
P-4 (out 1)
SAC (out 2)
3-run HR (on a 3-2 count to Biggio)
K (out 3)
His final line was bad. Still, he was one strike away from getting through 5 solid innings and Minute Maid Park is a right-handed-hitter's HR heaven, with the short porch in left.
Obviously, if you have a better option, dump him. I'm going to hang onto him for a little while longer, though.
Thanks for that levelheaded analysis. I needed it after furiously clicking through my SP free agent list looking for a replacement for Reyes
There really isn't that much out there in the FA that had the ability to 1-hit the ChiSox, so maybe I should stick with this guy for one more start.
