  • *Official* 4/27 Error of an Evening Postgamer

    Most frustrating loss of the season so far. No excuse for this game to play out the way it did.

    *** did I just watch. I usually don't let individual games get to me but that was just awful.

      This really is the worst loss of the season thus far. Good teams find ways to win games and bad teams find ways to lose them, I am just not sure where the White Sox fall in that group right now

        This is all on Tony. Beyond obvious that Giolito was losing it. Should have pulled him with 1 out still up 2-1, to leave him in even after that game tying double to let up another hit and a bomb is just terrible managing plain and simple. Giolito was pissed after his horrible outing in BOS and needed confidence and a good line after this effort, not a 6.1 and 4 runs.

        Tim running with no outs down 2 in the 7th made no sense.

        Not pinch hitting with Vaughn for either Hamilton or Leury was troubling.

        Not scoring more with all the bad Tiger defense really hurt in this one. But Tony ****ed this one up bad. Needed Heuer in within the first 3 batters of the 7th, no question. Everyone could see that.

        At least the Twins suck currently, and lost again.

          Well...at least the Royals lost.

          How does a team make five errors and you only score two runs? Simple...you go 0-13 with runners in scoring position.

          4th game this year the Sox took a lead into the 7th inning or later...and lost.

          At least this one wasn't on the bullpen.

          Regarding Giolito...could he be missing James McCann?

            Nah, I don’t think he had anything in Boston and if Tony pulled him after the 6th we wouldn’t be talking about Giolito at all.

              Giolito was fantastic all game until the 7th. This loss was not on him.

                Grandal has turned into a 3 true outcomes player. Walk, strikeout, or GIDP. It's like he forgot how to hit the ball in the air.

                  Statistically it is. I realize it wasn't his fault, but he, not a bullpen guy, gave up the lead which is why I stated it as I did.

                    Maybe this is a convenient excuse but could that knee still be screwed up somehow?

                      There's plenty of blame to go around. I've never seen a team squander so many gifted scoring opportunities. But yeah, just an awfully managed game from La Russa.

                      The worst decision to me was not pinch hitting in the 8th for two of the most anemic hitters on the team, in what was clearly going to be their best chance to come back. That's the exact scenario when you play for the game-tying HR. I have no idea what La Russa was thinking.

                        Okay La Russa just told reporters he was "looking for a single there" in the 8th. Down by 3, with the tying run at the plate. I'm at a loss.

                          He dominated the game for 6 innings, and then was gassed. It happens. The manager has to take him out.

                            Chi: I'm seeing folks comment on Tony talking about leaving Giolito in, did he really say he thought he could get the final out in the inning? Did he mis-speak or did he not realize there was only one out? Just wondering if you heard anything along these lines.

                              Ugly loss. So many opportunities to blow the game open early and nothing went our way all night. From both Jose and Yermin yanking 3-run bombs foul to Yoan overrunning the foul ball right before the 2-run blast, to Tony leaving Gio in too long to all those double play grounders.

                              Just not our night, dust it off and go back at it tomorrow.
