Gio bounced back very nicely after the Texas debacle and now has a 2.31 season ERA, 5-2 record with nearly a K/IP and for him, a wonderful 1.16 WHIP. Kid is a breakout star this season. Believe.
Gio has been awesome and I'm glad that I took a perceived reach for him with the last pick of the 10th. I did consider him to be Gallardo-lite since I thought his K's would return and he has high BB and GB rates.
And I'm having a bizarre week in H2H. Piniero (streamer), DHudson and Gio have been brilliant. but that has been countered by my opponent and he has a 13-8 GS advantage this week. My ERA is 0.71 with a 0.95 WHIP while my opponent (a lot more IP) has 1.88 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with a 16 K advantage.
