Baseball's Coming Back

Recommended Posts

Earlier today he allowed 1 run in 7 innings to get the W in his first career post season start against the White Sox in game 2 of their playoff series.

 

It seems the A's have found their ace.

 

I wonder what it would take to get him back for a game before he reports to Spring Training the last week of February? The A's don't play in Cleveland until mid August.

Chris was named the game 1 starter in the second round of the playoffs. The A’s play the Astros at 4:00 Monday. The game is in Oakland and is onTBS. 
 

I’ll be DVR'ing it and watching when I get home from work at 8:00ish.

Very Zip-centric article from the San Fran Chronicle here with stories from his Akron teammates.  Apparently he was an early-day Rec Center Wonder of the hoops.

 

"A second-team All-Mid-American Conference closer, he was drafted in the 16th round in 2011 by the White Sox and debuted three years later as the fourth Zips player to reach the majors. He also flashed his athleticism on the rec basketball court, where, Romick confirmed: “He can throw down.” "

385 pitchers pitched in the AL this season. That puts Chris in the top 2%.

The 8th best builder in the Universe Championships would not make the finals, but with over a thousand professional body builders the 8th best builder would be in the top 0.8%. The Universe and Cy Young are similar in that nobody other than the most diehard fan is likely to remember who finished anywhere other than 1st in either event. Being ranked in the top 2% of all pitchers in the AL isn't bad and he didn't have to wear a skimpy bathing suit to accomplish that ranking.

I'm a Zips fan, and take pride in their accomplishments. Especially those who overcame a lot in their pro careers.

 

Even if they are not GOAT.

I'll bet just about everyone on ZipsNation takes pride in the accomplishments former Zips even if the former Zip didn't have to overcome a lot.

Go Zips.

I vote Zipmeister for Mr. Olympia. He's got guns and all. 🏆
