  • *OFFICIAL* 5-7-21 Rodon Dominates Sox into First Place; SOX 3 KC 0

    The 9th inning was a bit too interesting, but all’s well that ends well.

        Also, the Sox have been playing so solid defense lately. Just catching and throwing the ball much better than the first two weeks of the season.

          I think Rodon might be for real.

              The pitching has been outstanding and will be the key for us to contend moving forward.

                2 earned runs in 5 starts. Wow…

                  Infield defense is some of the best in the majors right now. Where groundballs go to die. TA is just on defensive fire.

                  Yeah, that ninth was tense, but they got it done. Getting a little tired of catcher interference.

                  Big hits from Collins, Abreu and TA. Eaton just missed having double to tack on to his single and walk and Yermin came inches from a huge double but still managed to get a hit by going with the pitch like he was earlier this year. Hope he finds his stick again. it would relieve a lot of pressure. Abreu starting to heat up also and that's a good thing.

                      Just want to add on that it's really cool to see Rodon continuing to excel and really nice to see Heuer and Bummer settle down and find a groove. Need to decide what to do with Kopech. If he's going to be a reliever than start using him more than once a week. If the goal is to keep him stretched out then let him start. With Crochet back and Ruiz continuing to look solid there's other arms out there, but Kopech is a lock down late inning pitcher and needs to be used as one if that's his role this year, more so with Marshall struggling.

                        Sixth shutout already by the Sox just like back in the day of the 50's and 60's.

                        Rodon is setting himself up for an absolutely huge payday.

                        Vaughn with two hits has his average up to .260 now so that's a good sign.

                        Another catcher's interference? That stuff has got to stop it'll cost them at some point.

                          Rodon and Collins having the kind of nights they'll need to have for the Sox to contend.

                            Beat the damn Royals and the Klu is soothed. Crazy couple of innings along the way, but hey...That’s White Sox baseball. Great outing by Rodon. Now let’s put some space between us and dem bums.

                              It needs to be noted the Sox are 11-5 in their last 16 games.

                              Considering the managerial mishaps, the injuries and still a quarter of the team isn't hitting (last in the A.L. in home runs) that is impressive.

                              A real throwback to the "Golden Age" clubs of the 1950's-1960's who used great pitching and timely hitting to record 17 straight winning seasons.

                              Now how long they can keep this up, no one knows... but for now they are to be congratulated.
