Damn, I did not know that. That's rough.

He must have had at least 1 opportunity to see his girlfriend (and she must be going OK and it not distracting him), because his last start was workmanlike, and it looks like he was DEALING today (not that I could see it).

GBs and Ks FTW. Go Gio I've always believed in you. ;-D

Very good start today. I picked up GG on a spot start whim in my H2H league and don't think I will let him go now, curious to see if he's got his command issues under control and if he can turn into a real nice fantasy SP. He'll go against TB/Price this coming week, which isn't the greatest of matchups to say the least, but when the Oakland pitching coach says GG has the best stuff of their crew, maybe it is time to give GG some due.

This start against TB should test his mettle. :-L
I'm being forced to start him in one league to make up innings, so I'm aboard the roller-coaster :-S :-D

Go Gio go ;-D

Gallardo and Gio look awfully similar when you look at K, BB and GB rates imo. It wouldn't surprise me if Gio is getting drafted in the top 100 next year.

I'm on the fence as to whether to trot GG out there for the start against Tampa. The Rays are a beast.

I really like him, but not against Tampa. I'd play him against anybody except them, the Yanks, and maybe the Twins. Any team that has patience can give him trouble.

Exactly, unless you really need the innings I'd stay away from him tonight if I could. On the other hand, if he's able to put in a quality start tonight lot's more people are going to be jumping on this wagon.
