    I don’t think so. This is the Stripling they acquired. He had good-great numbers in LA. Something went wrong with his mechanics. Walker helped fix him. I trust him over Matz.

    Isn't Ross' montly splits over 4.3 era except for his great June?

    Bith are back end starters. Servecable but given that we have 4 guys in front, makes morr sense to put Ross in the pen as he has experience.

    Since Pete helped him fix his delivery, I can only recall one bad start over the past 13. He looks pretty solid right now. But he still might be back to the bullpen if Matz stays on a roll.
    If you dig deeper in the sample size, it gets a bit more shaky. Since May 24 is averages out but that has a June month with 3.18 ERA and July of 6.30. They average is good but its 2 extremes baked into the avg so I need a bigger sample size.

    That one game when he didnt make it out of the first probably tanked his July ERA.

    I think the other numbers weren't so hot even without that Boston game. 9 XBH in 4 games compared to 6 in 5 games, less Ks, more walks, etc.

    I normally dont like isolating bad games out though without also isolating out the good game to make it even.

    Here's the real numbers:
    The bad - July 19, Boston .1 ip 6er's, July 10, TB 4ip, 4 er's, June 11, Boston 5 ip, 4er's. His era average was 14.82 over these three starts and 8.5 really bad innings..

    The good - May 24, TB 7ip, 0 er, May 30, Cleveland 5 ip, 1 er, June 5 Houston 7 ip, 1 er, June 16, NYY 6.2 ip. 2 er, June 22, Miami 6 ip 1 er, June 27, Baltimore 5 ip 2 er, July 3, TB 5.2 ip, 1 er, July 25, NYM 5 ip, 1er, July 30, KC 5.1 ip, 2 er, Aug 5, Cle, 6 ip 0 er. Strips pitched 55.5 innings of 1.78 era baseball in these 10 starts. That's outstanding!

    Summary: Since strip and Walker fixed his delivery the results have been outstanding in 10 0f his starts. Even the best starters get knocked around once in a while. The 3.39 era over the 13 starts since May 24 tells me that his resurgence is real.

    Define “real”.
    He could keep it up this season, but would you consider giving him a contract based on the expectation those numbers will continue beyond?

    I personally need more sample size. He makes me nervous when he’s up there.

    I provided the factual results. 10 starts, 55.5 innings, 1.78 era. his 13 starts incuding the 3 bad starts still 3.39 era. His results are better than Matz, although it wouldn't surprise me if Strips goes to the pen when they go 5 man rotation. I believe he's arb 2 this year and I'll be glad to see him back next year.

    Eovaldi giving up 7 tonite shows that even the best pitchers can be hit around. What an inning! 9 spot, how often does that happen?

    I don't totally disagree with you. I hope that what were seeing is how he performed with the Dodgers when he was an all-star.

    I still find that to be too nitpicky given the small sample size. Granted what I did was also nitpicky but the splits was a bit more standardized (per month). I dont mind givjng a longer leash buy Im not buying a fix in delivery makes him a brand new pitcher, especially when baseball is a game about adjustments. I mean it wasnt so long ago Grich fixing his swing made him a supposedly great hitter.

    Something like 43 games with 10 or more hits. That’s nuts.

    Finally Montoyo put Gurriel and Kirk where they should be imo, that was a lethal 1 - 7 last night and Grich and Valera had good games as well. Nice to see Espy starting today.
