Is It Time For A Pink Slip Floyd?

Keith SavageContributor IMay 29, 2010

Losing To the first-place Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Thursday is hard enough. But losing to the perfect model of what the White Sox thought they were heading in to 2010, well, that’s downright depressing.
Even though Sox starter Gavin Floyd pitched seven solid innings, he continues to get rocked.
Tampa bay’s Carl Crawford belted a solo homer in the first,  and All Star Evan Longoria hit his 10th homer of the season in the sixth.
Gavin Floyd seems to be coming out of his disastrous six-week start, but that doesn’t change his 1-4 record and 6.67 ERA in five road starts.
Even if Floyd were pitching better, his record might not be much different. He has received one run or fewer of his support in five of his starts.
Floyd needs to take the crew to his house and have a big dinner and bullwhip them into processing runs so his record can improve.
He struggled to live up to the expectations after being drafted fourth overall by the Phillies in 2001, just ahead of his high school teammate Mark Teixeira.
