    Honestly, if this the Keuchel, and McCullers, we get the rest of the season, it doesn't matter what trade they did or didn't make.

    First couple of starts rust. But at start number three I expected to see some measure of improvement. Here has been NONE. DK draws a sh*t team in the White Sox and they are giving him the prison shower treatment. If Lunhow is talking to Detroit he better talk harder. Once in the playoffs good pitching will beat good hitting. I don't care what kind of year all our guys are having. They are not going to score 8 and 9 runs against Kershaw, Kluber, Sale and the like. So having starters that can't be counted on is going to equal a first round exit which would = failure. I don't care if we win 104 in the regular season which with Fiers and Peacock as your studs seems highly unlikely. Open up the damn purse strings or lower your ticket prices. Decide what kind of organization you want to be.

    The rest of us who aren't buying the whole "poor Dallas, it's fine he complained to the media" bit.

    Edit:

    I'll clarify. We had a World Series rotation with a healthy Keuchel, LMJ, and McHugh. We're not accomplishing **** with those guys being broken, regardless of what Luhnow did.

    DK hid his injury last year. That was idiotic. He complained to the media this year. That was idiotic.

    I'm getting pretty tired of him being injury prone and complaining about what others are doing. He needs to worry about himself.

    This will mostly fall on deaf ears, but you couldn't be more right.

    There is no point to any of this without, at a minimum, B+ level Keuchel and LMJ.

    How I hope they can get their heads out of their asses or whatever it will take for them to get back to the preening D-bag bat-missers we need them to be.

    He's tossing the ball up there like he's a dad throwing to his kid for the Home Run Derby. I don't disagree with his post-trade deadline comment...but at least he could pull his own f***ing weight.

    Regardless of what happens the rest of the year, they need better starting pitching to support the young MVP core.

    Whitley is 2 years away. Martes is going to need time as well.

    They can't keep wasting these guys prime years without trying to improve pitching.

    The White Sox are terrible. 4-23 since AS break and yet DK gets shelled.

    This is fair. Especially in light of DK's disappearing act. For 2.5 years, this team has flown and sunk with the performance of Keuchel and McCullers. We need to step off that roller coaster.

    We don't need a big trade to augment our 1 and 2, at this point. We need a big trade to replace them.

    I won't bash Luhnow too hard for the trade situation but I think it's safe to say he's not winning Manager of the Year...

    I'm saying who cares bc at this point you're insane if you think the FO is just taking Dallas at his word on how he's feeling. They're not just waiting around for him to say something. There's zero chance they didn't notice his velocity drop in his rehab stints.

    At this point I'm more inclined to think that Lunhow and co know damn well DK is damaged goods and they weren't willing to trade any of their top farm arms bc they know they'll need them sooner rather than later and were simply unwilling to trade them for anything short of a stud MLB pitcher w control, which simply didn't exist this year. Doesn't make me feel any better honestly but that's the only reasonable explanation.

    None of the farm pitchers are going to be ready any time soon.

    Martes is the closest, and he needs a helluva lot of mechanics adjusting. None of them will ever have come close to throwing 200 innings. There's also the high likelihood that at least one of them has an injury, as is the case with most MLB pitchers.

    The staff may be ready to go by 2020...and that's not going to be the best use of Altuve/Springer/Correa cheap prime years.
