re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
A little weary of how suspect the Sox starting pitching is. Humber is a minor league player or career journeyman, Floyd has a propencity to give up too many HR balls and is generally hit or miss, and Danks has been wild this year. No questions about the capabilities of Sale and Peavy, but two starters won't get the team through the season.
Quintana has been serviceable but the rotation is in shambles. Worse off, there's nothing in the farm system to cure the problems. With the attendance problems on the South Side, Kenny will probably restricted and won't be allowed permission from Reinsdorf to go out shopping for another piece or two.
And that's a shame because this lineup is stacked. They've led the AL in offense since May 17th in just about every offensive category.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
