    You take out gomber’s first start of the year (yes they count for good reason but still…) and his numbers look quite good. Another ho hum boring starter.

    Last ten starts his era is 3.00

    … I’ve been more quiet about him than I was last winter… But still like him. He is boring and solid and he will make the bigs in some capacity.

    Pretty obvious he is ready for aaa … If a spot ever opens.

    There were plenty of openings at Memphis. Gomber was passed by Flaherty, Pearce and Gallen this year.

    Edit: And Hudson, too.

    No argument on pecking order… the pitching situation in the minors is exciting. Having better alternatives doesnt make you bad.

    I mostly just wanted to point out he seems to be doing well. If I had to guess… Bullpen long term but he seems to have a knack for getting outs so who knows.

    Being a lefty would help – in most organizations. However, the Cards have four lefties in the MLB pen already plus Sherriff at Memphis.

    Gomber is almost back to where he was a year ago at this time.

    Yeah there has to be some movement there this winter in my opinion.

    Lyons has one year of arb (I believe) left so it isnt a ‘trade immediately situation.

    Gomber has had some good sized bumps this season, but four out of his last five starts have been very solid. We’ll see where he stands at the end of this season and more importantly at spring training ’18.

    Gomber has plenty of talent… but the other young guys have been even better. If the injury bug should bite (ala Poncedeleon) the effect should be minimal. BTW… I think of Danny every day just seeing him on the Memphis roster with a DL after his name. Get better fast Danny. 🙂
