  • *OFFICIAL* 5-14 DH Game 2 Vaughn Bomb SOX 3 KC 1 Postgamer

    Kopech with a nice start too.

  • #2
    Good game from the pitching all around. Heuer and Bummer were lights out. Hendriks only gave up a bunt single that should have been an out but he bobbled it when trying to pick it up. Kopech gave up only 2 hits and the solo HR while striking out 5. Sox can beat you so many different ways.

    Glad to read Abreu is day to day and unlikely to miss any significant time. No concussion.

    Let's go get them tomorrow.

      There is something going on with this team...the next man up mentality is really inspiring to watch. Seeing that Vaughn went yard and play well subbing in for Jose is awesome. I was encouraged that Jose was asking TLR to play the second game (such a gamer). I just hope he feels ok in the morning when he wakes up and we give him 1-2 more days rest to make sure. Jose is so inspiring to watch with his team attitude and what he brings to the table. I can't imagine what his numbers would be if he came younger from Cuba. Just a great player that we are witness to. He reminds me so much of Paulie in many ways.
      And Kopech has been awesome...love the progression he is showing. A fun team....can't wait for health to happen for this team. Future is good if everyone heals. Sounds like the clubhouse is a blast too.

        Glad they were able to get the split. God, I hate and despise these seven inning farce double headers.

        Vaughn is certainly coming around.

        Now keep it going tomorrow.

          I'd imagine Kopech moves into the rotation next year when Lynn and Rodon leave.

            With a 7 inning game they should change the rule about a starter going 5 innings to get the win, should be 4. Kopech had a good outing with 1 earned run and 5 Ks in his 4 innings, Heuer comes in pitches 1 inning and gets the win.
            Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

              Agreed

                Barring injury, I think Kopech is a slam dunk for the 2022 rotation, but I’d like to retain either Lynn or Rodon. Unless Stiever dominates at Charlotte this year, I don’t have a lot of confidence in any of the other upper level pitching prospects (Lambert, McClure) other than perhaps as fringy fifth starters, and I don’t think Crochet will have built up the innings this year to be a starter in 2022.

                  Phew, the Indians finally lost.

                  I don't think it's realistic to expect either Lynn or Rodon back in 2022. Those guys are gonna test the FA market for as much as they can get, and odds are their biggest offer won't be from JR. The Sox may have to trade for another 1-year rental starter.

                    Then we better hope that lots of our prospects have great minor league seasons, so that we have excess capital to trade. At the same time, once Eloy returns (even if it’s next year), we’re going to have a logjam of sorts between LF, 1B, and DH. It’s a nice problem to have too many hitters but the problem is that Abreu, Vaughn, Eloy and Mercedes are all RH hitters and none of them can play RF. We may have to trade from that surplus, plus prospects, to get both a LH hitting RF (unless Rutherford or Sheets hit their way into the job) and a starting pitcher.

                      Vaughn and Eloy are the players I keep in this scenario. Too much upside for both to let go. Abreu isn't getting younger and he's signed through next season, but after that he'll be 35 and sluggers like him typically don't age well (unless they juice like Nelson Cruz). I love the guy and would hate to see MVPito leave the team. I would also sell high on Mercedes if he keeps it up throughout the course of this season.

                        I agree. Vaughn is already punishing LH pitchers with a 1.236 OPS. He’s still struggling against RH pitchers but that’s to be expected given this is his first full season of professional baseball after a post-draft half season at A ball and last year’s intrasquad work at Schaumburg. Still lots of upside, and his play in LF has been adequate, which is exceptional considering he never previously played the position.

                          Keep an eye on McKinnon at AA.

                            McClure? Or Kincanon?

                            Unless you’re talking about Dennis McKinnon, who could lay a block better than almost any other WR, and came up huge for the Bears against Minnesota on Thursday night of Week 3 in 1985. 😜

                              Got a sweet swing, doesn't he? Some nice lift on that HR yesterday, too. And he is a real first baseman, even if he isn't in the classic lanky mold. Another Steve Garvey in the making?
