Yeah, 5 starts is a great basis for judgment, especially considering the offenses Gausman has faced.   

I am going to go crazy with people posting this stuff every time Gausman has a good start.   We won’t have any basis to judge this until Gausman has pitched a full season for the Braves.   

Way too early.But better then Archer with over 6 ERA with Pittsburgh

I see that Christian Walker is up with the D-Backs and getting some at bats as a pinch hitter.   He had a .922 OPS in the PCL this season.

Big game against a tough team. Typical Gausman.

Both the good and the bad games are typical Gausman.    He’s been all over the lot during his time with us.    He pitched well in a lot of big games down the stretch in 2016.   He was lousy other times.   As I’ve consistently said since he was traded, it will take at least to the end of 2019 to know if he’s become a diffferent pitcher for Atlanta than he was with us.

I have to think the end result will be somewhere towards the median. His Orioles career was so frustrating because of his flashes of brilliance and dominance (“How about Kevin ******* Gausman!”, in Tommy Hunter speak), followed up by a guy who nibbled far too much, had no secondary pitches working, and then got hammered when he was forced to throw a pitch down the middle.

I never thought that Gausman would not lose another game.  He has done well in Atlanta so far with a 2.32 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP.

But offensively, he did K twice last night.  His beard is spotty also.  SSS

I gave Gausman what seemed like way too many chances to get on track and stay on track while here. Wasn't he the guy that lived on donuts before and during his starts in college? Fine ! Everybody has some quirky habit it seems in sports.  Didn't they take that away from him? He always seemed like a guy who was satisfied after every start even though he knew he pitched lousy. He always would say I have to do better the next time out and then when traded even admitted he didn't do a good job while here. To put it mildly I am not what anyone would consider a tough guy although some might think I am. I told friends at many Orioles games I saw him pitch and games on TV I wish they could toughen him up. Give him some edge or attitude. In other words don't act wimpy (is that a word?) or soft all of the time. I'm not the only one that felt that way.  I've always wanted the Orioles to trade for Archer every time his name came up in trade rumors. Personally I think Archer is the better pitcher and his contract made him even more appealing. If you polled any AL playoff contender manager or GM and asked them who they would want to start in a key game for them I think the majority would say Archer. Will Gausman improve in Atlanta. Of course he will. His won loss record has to improve it's so bad. Even if they move him to the pen. He threw too many pitches in four or five innings almost every time out.  I think everyone will see we got the better of the trade in the next year or two.
