Instant Rationalization – Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Floyd continues to master inconsistency

Instant Rationalization – Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Floyd continues to master inconsistency
If the goal for pitchers was to be as inconsistent as humanly possible—to dominate batters and make them look silly one game and then get shelled like a batting practice pitcher the next—Gavin Floyd might have four or five Cy Young awards by now.

Monday, August 15th is the birthday of former White Sox team owner, and former stadium namesake, Charles Comiskey.  I don’t imagine there was much celebration, because it tends to damper birthday celebrations when the guest of honor isn’t there.  Especially if he isn’t there because he’s dead.
