    I'm sure he's penciled in to break camp in the MLB rotation.

    That's why they promoted him all the way up to AAA this year and shut him down when the MiLB season ended.

    Team sucks cocks so bad, we have to rush him up early, in what's most likely a lost season anyway, and lose a year of control.

    They wouldn't be that stupid would they? I thought I heard May 17 for the extra year.

    I'm sure he'll have quite a few chances to pitch tomorrow and Tuesday. Trotting out the near automatic losses in Danks and Noesi--not that it's entirely on them. Bad fundamentals and seemingly non existent bats when a pitcher not named Sale is on the mound is a rather large factor.

    I think they're fine in terms of years under team control, but with this early call up, he'll be designated as a super 2 and he'll get four years of arbitration as opposed to three.

    Thought that may have something to do with super 2. Good enough.

    His extra year thing is no different than Bryant and Cubs. Friday was the day.

    Hopefully him in the rotation can turn the season around. Fuckers need to start hitting though

    He should get put in the rotation right away. Giving Rodon the Buerhle and Sale timetable doesn't work due to the fact that his agent is Boras and most importantly any start he doesn't make goes to Danks and Noesi. If he's needed that badly one of those pieces of shit needs to come out of the rotation for him.

    Make him a starter, and be done with it. Cut ties with Danks and just eat the contract.

    I say give Rodon a few weeks of shit bullpen duty, then let his starter boner unleash itself onto the world.

    I would rather him be in the rotation. But, if they're trying to cap his innings then I guess a short stint in the bullpen doesn't hurt too bad. But then you have to re-stretch his arm out.

    With him and Petricka coming back to Chicago, who's gone? Drabek? Phantom DL stint for someone?

    Rodon is almost certainly on an innings cap. I'd guess 160-180. You don't want a Strasburg situation where in the middle of a competitive run to the playoffs you shut him down. Nationals fans and players, rightfully got pissed when that happened as would Sox fans. Of course, this team has to first get to the level of a playoff team.

    There was some great comments on Facebook last night; to paraphrase one of them:

    Do you know who got sent down?

    I think he's just going to the bullpen so nobody.

    Thanks; that's what I thought.

    I got a bad feeling about this. It's not often I'm a dark cloud when it comes to the Sox I just don't get on the hype train. Two pitches an MLB pitcher does not make.

    Two very good pitches and one meh pitch are more than most MLB pitchers have.

    Should've picked something unusual like 10 or something. Why do pitchers never go below 20 again?

    Probably somewhat due to the old Yankee (and others?) tradition of numbering position players 1-9, and maybe more due to the fact that so many teams have a few of the single digits retired already. A lot of teams probably only have half of them available now anyway.

    whitesox901 Banjo and Kazui's great adventure

    2, 3, 4, and 9 are retired. And 1, 5, and 7 are used. And 6 isn't used because of Charley Lau.

    I guess he could have had 8.

    I really hate when receivers in football wear like 17. It was cool when the first guys did it; now shit is played out more than Cheeses butthole.

    They've had to expand numbers for a few positions. TE can do 40s and LB can do 60s.

    Back in the day 1-9 were reserved for position players. 11-20 isn't common but a decent number of pitchers have those numbers (usually starters)

    I like the trend of position players wearing hockey numbers like 66 and other high stupid numbers.

    College needs to get rid of the dumb 0-5 digits only rule.

    Because it's so difficult for officials to signal a number higher than 5.

    Rodon to start again this Friday; assuming this is to cover for Sale's suspension?

    sycked If you loved me, you'd all kill yourselves today.

    Sale will be back before then--should be starting Tuesday at Milwaukee. Started the game this past Wednesday and then started to serve his suspension on Thursday when the Sox finished their set with the Tigers.

    It would appear that he'll be filling in Noesi's spot, possibly due to injury.
