I and -- again on welcome to the MLB on fox preview presented by Chevrolet. Building the next generation of baseball memories. I'm pleased to -- -- -- foxsports.com. Senior baseball writer Ken Rosenthal who will be in San Francisco for the Giants and Dodgers. And the Giants appear to be get hot at the right time. Just as pitching rotation lined up big east though are the Giants primed for another World Series run. Tells you they certainly could be like this a lot I love what they've done in the absence of the suspended notre Cabrera. But frankly right now I'm a little bit worried about their starting pitching which of course is the team's great -- And the thing that would recommended most in a playoff run. Over the past three weeks or so the starting pitchers have not gone as deep into games as the normally do. You ERA has been up around five so whether they're getting tired whether this is merely a lol well who knows but. For the Giants to be who they are who they want to be in the post season. They need better out of each of those. Moving out of the Braves and Matt Atlanta -- all star second baseman Dan Uggla because these simply wasn't producing. The -- is still about 36 million over the next few years so what Uggla his future and Atlanta. Really good question Chelsea and this is not simply a three week -- Dan Uggla has been in this is a month. One month long it's gone back to June even date some degree. Batting average really low strikeouts tied. Is it for some power but has not been that Dan Uggla that we're constantly seeing though you ask well what happens to him down the line. I don't think anything actually he has three years -- in his contract after this season thirteen million a year each season. That's a ton of money 39 million dollars remaining on that deal. Yes I think it probably trade him for another bad contract. Maybe the Dodgers immediately that's fake and another day contract but. Right now what the Braves need is an ugly ultimately to be better when he is on the field this season and of course in the future as well. And finally the White Sox take on the Royals Chicago come up a tough stretch where they lost six out of seven and the starting rotation really struggle. Is pitching gonna be the downfall for the Sox. Chelsea is very well could be and two guys are worried about are the young guys rotation sailing -- time. Each of their last two starts have been below what they've been all year long which is really excellent. And we you have this kind of young pitching this much young pitching certainly it is always a concern. As my colleague John -- as -- pointed out in recent call with the White Sox or attempting to do here is almost distort with a number of young pitchers that they have. You know what happens young pitchers they sometimes get tired in September and that could be happening with the White Sox right now. We've got a tough task overcoming the Tigers but the Tigers are an enigmatic team as well. So really it is going to come down to pitching and there I would give the tiger's image. I can thank us now is for joining us that's gonna do it for this and I'll be on fox preview presented by Chevrolet building the next generation of baseball memories. I can't resident I'm Celtic channel banks from watching.
