A blooper and then a single in front of the plate. But Mills gets out of it.

Mills threw a ton of pitches, but the 5th and 6th helped. Will he go out for the 7th?

Heck of an outing by Mills. He’s been very damn good in his 2 starts.

Interesting to see one of the Cubs who faced him in ‘spring’ training mention the difference in speed of his pitches. Tonight in first inning there was 28mph diff from fastest to slowest.

Q should be put in the pen when he's healthy. How can you drop Mills out of your rotation? They need a lefty in the pen as well. Brothers is awful, Ryan mediocre and this kid Steele who's ERA was 6 in the minors.

In a 162 game season, I could see Q getting his job back over the ‘unproven’. But even though it is twostarts, no way I want to move this kid out of the rotation for unreliable Q.

i think you’re right. Q in pen could be a plus

the way Mills and Chatwood are pitching, you can’t take them out of the rotation. Either go with 6 or Q to pen.

Not six. Pen. Good ‘problem’ to have. Especially when the penis so weak.
