Former Wolfpacker (as if there was such a thing…I’m looking at you Russell Wilson), Carlos Rodon has spent his relatively short professional career

No link to link to, but the fantasy baseball note next to his name says Carlos Rodon will start Saturday against the Reds. Yes, he’s on my fantasy team.
Wufpacker EDIT – Meant to get this up, in fact. Thx for the reminder 🙂
Throwing it up on the main blog to increase visibility.

He can thank Samardzija for the opportunity. Hopefully he makes the most of it.05/07/2015 at 8:04 PM #86176highstickParticipant
Move this to a Russell thread if you’d like…I’m still laughing though!

Sure am glad they didn’t try to force Rodon to pitch a couple of weeks ago in Chicago…Sure was cold and damp and WINDY…sounds like Chicago weather…

Are the Sox secretly a little happy about the suspensions cuz it forces them to see what their future ace can do? We are of course.05/08/2015 at 9:04 AM #86190
Thanks Wuf! Looking forward to this. All the fantasy advice says don’t start him against the Reds, but my ERA and WHIP are shot this week anyway.

I wonder why the fantasy advice is not to start him? In my many years of only half-a** paying attention to baseball, I’ve noted a trend that big league hitter tend to fair badly the first few times they see a good (<– note, I said good, not mediocre or bad) pitcher.
You can see many cases (Dice K, Strausberg, etc…) where a pitcher absolute destroys the competition until there is enough scouting and tape on them that the hitters can adjust.
Based just on that, I just bet the entire amount of my mortgage on Rodon getting the win tomorrow.

Well, the “experts” say the Reds have a powerful lineup, Rodon is inexperienced, and the Chisox ballpark is hitter friendly.

Line on Rodon so far tonight (thru 3.0 IP)…2 runs on 3 hits, 4 k/3 bb.
Game tied 2-2.05/09/2015 at 9:54 PM #86220
Thru 5 Rodon now has 7 k’s, fastball still in mid to upper 90’s. Pitch count at 91 so probably another inning, 2 at most.
But he’s thru 5 and Sox now have a 3-2 lead so for the moment at least, he’s in line for the W.05/09/2015 at 10:35 PM #86223
Final line on Rodon tonight…6.0 IP, 2 runs on 4 hits, 8k’s/4bb’s.
Sox have a 5-2 lead in the 7th.05/09/2015 at 10:36 PM #86224
Make that 6-2.05/09/2015 at 10:44 PM #86226
Make that 7-2.
