A Little News
Toby Hall is going to test his right shoulder by throwing tomorrow in Oakland.
The last White Sox starting pitcher to win his debut was …
… Kip Wells on 8/2/99 (1 ER/5.1 IP).
Since then, we have seen eight debuts: Garland, Biddle, Stewart, Cotts, Diaz, Munoz, McCarthy and Haeger without a win (0-4, 9.53 ERA, 42 ER/39.2 IP).
For some reason (John’s performances this spring, a lefty vs. the Twins, the Twins not having seen Danks yet or just a feeling), I have a good vibe about today (also, maybe it was all the chocolate this morning, who knows?).
We’ll know by 4 pm.
