Chad Billingsley looks to prove his doubters wrong and get back on track. Since the All-Star Game, in which he allowed one run in one inning, Billingsley has posted a 3-6 record and 5.49 ERA. While his overall numbers on the season still look fine on paper (12-10, 4.05 ERA in 31 games, with 165 strikeouts in 184 1/3 innings), they haven't looked quite as rosy in real time of late. While many fans seem to think this start will make or break Billingsley's postseason rotation chances, I'm a bit more optimistic about him.
Like anybody else, I'd love to see him get back on track with a nine inning shutout or something of the sort, but I'll settle for a solid outing of any kind just to get him back on track before the playoffs.
