With lots of boxes checked this offseason, the bullpen remains an area the White Sox still must fortify.
This kicks off a mini-burst of bests and blursts this week at South Side Hit Pen. Today, Lenny G gets things going with his highly-entertaining look at his most and least favorite games of 2019.
The entire class of free agent and trade acquisitions for the White Sox in 2019 contributed just 3.9 bWAR.
No, that is not a typo.
Metrics don’t take kindly to pitchers like Colomé. Despite a mostly solid relieving career to date in which he’s posted 126 saves, he’s amassed only a 6.7 bWAR. With that said, there’s something to be said for Colomé being a relatively calming influence in the clubhouse.
An 18-act play? Nah. Nine acts? Nope. Stream of consciousness centered around SoxMath and meatball takes? Sure.
Simply put: heartbreaking. The White Sox twice rallied for leads in extras, but managed to lose.
Is Lucas Giolito the unluckiest pitcher in the league? Will he ever reach 15 wins?
