The Red Report 2020 - Sonny Gray, fresh off receiving NL Cy Young Award votes last year for his brilliant work https://www.redreporter.com/2020/2/21/21141082/cincinnati-reds-sonny-gray-preview?utm_campaign=redreporter&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter …
Larry Rothschild: “What was that Sonny?” Sonny Gray: “I think I should go back to my old pitch mix. What I’m doing isn’t working out.” Larry: “Nah let’s get this over with and put on some Netflix. Gotta finish Stranger Things.” Sonny: “I’m starting...”

Sonny Gray. Oh wait, Larry Rothschild ruined him to the point the media used the intangible narrative that he couldn’t handle NY, even though he shut down a team that was cheating IN New York, and forced to trade him where he finished in the top 10 of the CY Young race

Exactly. Some guys never get a chance at the playoffs, much less a chance at a pennant or a championship. That was their chance, and they were cheated out of it. Guys like Ronald Torreyes, even Sonny Gray - will he ever be on a championship contender again. Maybe, but maybe not.
MLB P FaBIO Evolution: Sonny Gray, CIN. Refound BATTED/GB success in '19 after escaping Big Apple & reuniting w/ D1 pitching coach. Meanwhile K Rating spiked to highest mark (91) by comfortable margin since '13 debut. Could make run at NL CY w/ return of '17-'13 CTL if K holds.
The 2nd spot in the @Reds rotation should be Sonny Gray. In 2019 Gray went 11-8 with a 2.87 ERA, pitching 175.1 innings in 31 starts. He K’d 205 while walking only 68. Gray had career highs in WAR (5.6) & ERA+ (158) and was a serious contender for NL Comeback Player of the Year!
