Sox Scoops 46.003: Pitcher Bernie Stuart Named Newcomer of the Year

The Chicago Black Sox this weekend named bright young pitching prospect Bernie Stuart as their “Newcomer of the Year” for the 2045 season.

Team officials conceded that All-Star catcher Pedro Gomez was the obvious choice for the honor, but decided to acknowledge the importance of Stuart’s contributions down the stretch when No. 2 SP David Bates went down with an elbow injury.

“Given that Pedro won the Hitter of the Year, we thought it was only fitting that we honor Bernie, too,” said Sox manager Julian Negrete. “Bernie stepped into the rotation without missing a beat, and helped carry us across the finish line to the playoffs. Without him, who knows what happens?”

Bates went down for the season with elbow inflammation on Aug. 20, and Stuart came up to the big club the next day from AAA Carolina, where he had put together a 13-4 record with a 2.99 ERA, 10.1 K/9 and 4.7 WAR.

After his call-up to Chicago, Stuart went 3-0 with a 2.37 ERA, 11.6 K/9, and 1.5 WAR.

“He was outstanding,” Negrete said.

Now, although Bates has recovered and rejoined the team, it’s widely thought that he’ll drop to No. 3 in the rotation, with Stuart taking over as No. 2 and challenging Amayas Moelling for staff ace going forward.

“Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves,” Stuart said. “It’s nice to hear things like that, but Amayas and David are established stars and I’m just a noob. But, tell you what, I’ll definitely work my butt off to help make all those nice things come true.”

When I coached High School basketball 10 years ago, I used to look at my team and think we weren't that bad. I could see the growth of our players and was optimistic about our chances. Then we'd play games and get destroyed because I wouldn't realize how good the other teams were because I didn't see those guys on a regular basis. Sure, my guys grew and were getting better, but we weren't as good as other teams.

That is just how I felt looking at Stuart. I think Portland has some good pieces coming then I look at Stuart and say "Fuck, we aren't that good!"
