    Can't win if you don't score, and you can't win when making boneheaded decisions either.

    Just because you CAN double switch, doesn't mean you have to!!!!!

      DJ was beside himself with Garcia trying to steal there. Just kept muttering "What are we doing?" And it is a very valid question. This is the kind of stuff that wasn't supposed to happen with Ricky gone. Extra inning games come down to execution and our team blows at executing. Classic White Sox offense to score 9 then get blanked. Hendricks seems like a waste of a huge contract too. Not at all impressed. What a depressing couple of days.

        Mike Ferrin on Twitter said the rule makes it seem like the Sox didn’t have to use Hendricks as a runner, which is not a great look for Tony. https://twitter.com/mike_ferrin/stat...237043206?s=21

          Fegan just asked Tony about this and cited the rule book from MLB.com, Tony didn’t know the rule.

            Couple of days? Did we lose yesterday?

              I'd like to know if Leury went on his own or was told to and not impressed with Hendricks.

                Yeah that was a bad example of how to manage an extra inning game under the new rules. More so if indeed they could have put Abreu on 2B to start the 10th, but even so you've got Leury and Hamilton coming up and no bunts? Love or hate bunting, once Grandal walks, that's a no-brainer and then to let Leury try to steal?

                TLR ****ed that up bigly...

                  Running in that situation is just the dumbest thing you can do. Unreal.

                  Umps squeezing our pitchers didn't help either, but they got to get runs across. Bad loss, but the offense was asleep so can't expect to win.

                    Tony's decision apparently.

                      Loss Sunday, injury news Monday, plus bad day today. Last night was great but it feels like it is a tease of what this team could be if healthy. Find it hard to believe they can sustain that type of performance with the lineup as is.

                        Abreu needs to step it up. I love the guy but with Eloy and Robert done for maybe the year, he has to be good let alone just not totally sucking. Same for Grandal who is just stealing money from us.

                          All I can add is that the Sox are now 1-5 in bastardized extra inning games going back to last year. Fundamentals count folks and the Sox are brutal with them.

                          The only extra inning game they won was when Robert hit a three run home run vs. Kansas City.

                          Regarding TLR, I said this was either going to work out very well or be a disaster, there would be no middle ground... it appears disaster is too kind of a word.

                            On the bright side, the Sox just held one of the best lineups in baseball scoreless through 18 innings this series.

                              A first place disaster.
