Referring to the recent rants by Chris Bassitt and James McCann about the haphazardness of the baseball, Ken Rosenthal writes today...

Bravo! Except for one thing. Not all pitchers agree the ball is a problem. Some believe the introduction this season of an official rosin bag is helping alleviate the grip concerns caused by the crackdown on illegal sticky substances that the league initiated last June. The 8-ounce Honduran Pine rosin bags manufactured by Pelican are subject to strict chain-of-custody protocols and are the responsibility of a specific clubhouse staff member at each major-league park.

“I like it. There is a noticeable tacky difference,” Phillies right-hander Kyle Gibson told The Athletic’s Matt Gelb. “I’m obviously the outlier, it sounds like."

I happen to be painfully aware that Gibson's season took an abrupt downturn last year when they started checking for the sticky stuff.

Kyle Gibson (P) PHI - Apr. 25

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=10945

Gibson (2-1) yielded two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.2 innings Monday, striking out four and earning a win over the Rockies.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Gibson was taken deep twice in Monday's win, with Connor Joe and Randal Grichuk hitting solo shots in the first and second innings, respectively. The veteran righty then retired nine straight Rockies and didn't face much of a threat for the rest of the outing.

I was interested to see, helping Peter with some proofreading for the Guide last night, that Glenn Colton and the Wolfman actually targted Kyle Gibson last year in Tout Wars AL. Or so they claim.

First, we got behind the numbers on players like Patrick Sandoval. His stat page showed an ugly 5.65 ERA in 2020. We saw something different: A pitcher with a gaudy 16 percent swinging strike rate and even gaudier 65 percent ground ball rate in September 2020 (given that the season was only two months long in 2020, September carried more weight with us than other years). For that $1 investment in Sandoval, we got 94 strikeouts in just 14 starts to go with solid ratios. We also dug deep into the non-numerical information and homed in on the fact that Kyle
Gibson’s 2020 was affected by his bout with colitis. We looked 
at his combined his return to health, new cutter, and history of strong ground ball rates, and saw a bargain. Yep. For just a reserve round pick we were rewarded with a 3.71 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 155 strikeouts. 

I believe them about Sandoval.
