All right, so that headline may be a bit unfair to Francisco Liriano, but Liriano has only made two starts with the White Sox, so it's too early to judge his time here.
My point is that the White Sox have gone from a regular five-man rotation to a six-man rotation and now back to a five-man rotation over the last ten days, and the truth is it's been a two-man rotation all season long.
There's Jake Peavy and Chris Sale, and then there's everybody else.
Yeah, Jose Quintana has pitched well, but he's hit a wall of sorts. He's at 97 points right now after putting up a 0 this week, but he had 83 points back in Week 13. That means he's scored 14 points over the last month.
Both Peavy and Sale had more than that in their last start.
This week Peavy and Sale combined for 34 points in their two starts. Gavin Floyd, Jose Quintana, Phil Humber and Francisco Liriano combined for 16. Of those 16 points, 17 came from two Liriano starts! Floyd, Quintana and Humber check in at -1 point!
Humber will probably put up more points from his new spot in the bullpen. Well, assuming he's there long considering Dylan Axelrod just got off the disabled list down in Charlotte and Hector Santiago is being stretched out to start.
