Gibson 8/24

Gibson's start was really highlighted by some shaky command. He got a lot of swinging strikes (12.6%), but he seemed to be working from behind in the count often. His 2 seam command in particular really seemed to get the better of him. While his slider did do a good job of getting swinging strikes, it was put into play often and with fair success (4 hits on 6 balls in play). He did end the game with 5 strike outs in under 5 innings, which puts him above a 9 K/9 rate, but he also had 4 walks.

More change ups. Gibby has been up and down all season. I like him when he's on and curse him when he's down. Hopefully 2015 we see a much more consistent K Gib.
