Game 64 Preview

Jon Garland 4-3, 6.19

vs.

Kameron "Roger Clemens would be proud of my name" Loe 3-5, 5.32

Although Jon's numbers look terrible, he has looked better in his past two starts. Not great, but better. If Jon throws in a steady diet of 2 seamers and sinkers and avoids the hanging change, he should be okay.

Okay, here's my guess, not having seen the game, but having followed it online:

Kong wins PotG hands down. Hard to beat a 3-run bomb when you win by 3.

But props will go to the bullpen, which was sensational. If Brandon, Bobby, and Cotts are really going to be like that most of the year then I feel VERY confident that we'll make the playoffs. That's a nasty top 3 relievers down the stretch.

And nice job by garland through 5. Perhaps he, Vasquez, and Garcia should all be considered 5 inning pitchers by now and just automatically bring relievers in in the 6th. I know it will kill us in the long run but it feels like more than half of our losses have come in that inning alone.

I agree that Kong could be the PotG on the strength of a clutch 3 run HR, but maybe a stat or label should be created for a cumulative effort by the bullpen cuz Neal is my PotG with the Hold and Mac and Jenks finished well.

I'd be willing to make a new sidebar counter. Did you have any title in mind? I had entertained thoughts of doing pitcher and hitter of the game, but there are too many instances where either or hitting or our pitching carries us, which would make it hard to name one of each for every game.

Hey James and Jonathon,

First off thanks for your consistent feedback and comments y'all are my most loyal readers.
Second, would either of you guys like to write for the site? I don't know if you have read "open invite" (it's under ChiSoxBlog Favorites on the Sidebar) but you definitely qualify under the guidelines set out. It would be awesome to have more people posting aside from me, DickDaStick and Dale. You could post as often or as little as you like.

If you're game, just lemme know your e-mail address and I'll hook you up.
