What's happening with Jo-Han?

Commanche Jim

Recommended Posts

He hasn't looked to hot lately.......7-5 and ERA approaching 4.

Is he hurt?

He's definitely not the same as he has been the last few years, I don't think his location has been that great... he has been leaving alot of pitches up in the strike zone and he seems to get rattled much easier than last year.... kinda like Lohse.

jim are u trolling like windy?? lol only in illiNOISE... Johan isnt as sharp as he has been but i will still take him over freddie garcia or anyone else on the whitesox staff even Buhrle. Everyone knows Johan is a 2nd 1/2 pitcher has always been that way.. look for the win total to go up and the era to go down... and as windy would qoute a totally overrated broadcaster,, YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD,,,YES!

Man, I really can't stand Hawk...........getting really old.

You know what I really hate............ "Stretch....stretch........" Wow that's bad. Like Harry....."Long drive, deep drive....caught by Ryne Sanderson at second base".......

Just bad TV.

Hawk and DJ must go!!!!!

What I heard is that the pitching coach changed some things in his mechanics. They did this so he would not tip off his change-up. I don't think it's working too well. The other thing is, maybe the scouting reports have caught up with him, and batters have a better idea of what to do when they face Santana. I still think he is an above average pitcher, and feel confident they will win when he takes the mound. More so than Radke anyways.

If you compare his numbers with last year they are about the same. I have confidence that it is going to be just like last year. We were down by 7 at the all-star break and came back and won the division by 9 games. A sixteen game swing after the all-star break. I know that they are different teams now, but it is going to happen.

Anyone put any stock into Redman calling a bad game yesterday? I don't know, maybe yo-han is having trouble pitching from the stretch. He seems to be doing well then all of a sudden a 2 out rally. Its either mental or mechanical because his arm still seems lively.

I personally think he's going through his dead-arm phase a little later this year. He'll be back.

Also, you've gotta realize that he would be 10-5 this year if Gardy wouldn't leave him out there all night long. I understand that he's your best arm and in many situations you let him work out of jams, but why not go to the pen in the bottom of the seventh with one out and runners on the corners. You've got a guy in the pen who has been lights out all year; you've gotta use him. The exact same thing happened a couple weeks ago in Milwaukee. The recipe that has won us three straight titles is: starter goes six, then two releivers and a closer. We still typically do that with anybody else but Jo. I think Gardy counts on his starts as bullpen rest days.

Yes, compared to last year he's WAY off.

Through 18 starts this season, Santana is 7-5 with a 3.98 ERA, 26 walks and 143 strikeouts.

Through 18 starts last season, Santana was 7-5 with a 3.89 ERA, 29 walks and 125 strikeouts.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
