  • *Official* 5/26 Sluggish and Injured Postgamer

    I'll take this frustrating loss if it means Kopech isn't out for long. Don't want Eaton out long-term either.

    If I had to sum up today's game with the name of one journeyman backup catcher of the last 10 years, you could not do better than Jose Lobaton.

      Another stinker but too close to the last round of stinkers. Frustrating Yermin couldn’t drive in something as the ducks quacked on the pond. Get ready for the O’s, pop the clutch and get this bus moving again.

        It looks like riding the hot hand with Yermin has run its course. I appreciate what he has done; his efforts have kept this team’s offense afloat.

        But let’s be realistic going forward. He’s really just some right-handed thump for the bench who had a charmed run to start the season. Again, this is in no way blaming him. It’s just something that needs to be addressed between now and July 31st.

          Our pen is proving more and more mediocre.....hopefully Engle comes back and we can DFA Hamilton. Eaton can go too...got enough guys that can play OF and hit .198

            What happened to him, looks like he pitched a clean inning?

              At least they won the series.

              Rodon is becoming the next Joe Horlen it seems.

              0-10 with runners in scoring position is inexcusable.

              And the bullpen once again made it almost impossible for the Sox to try to comeback.

              Need to take three of four from the Orioles

              Six guys in the lineup today batting under .250

                Mercedes left 10 runners on by himself today.

                I think it's time to juggle the lineup. Grandal needs to hit in front of Abreu and Moncada needs to hit behind him. Maybe that helps get Grandal something to hit and if it he walks, there's a runner on first and it's harder to pitch around Abreu.

                I also wouldn't be opposed to seeing Eaton spend 10 days on the IL to see what Gavin Sheets can do against the Orioles and the Tigers. Let Eaton get his legs back to 100%.

                  2 out of 3 against the Cards isn't bad but now we need to take at least 3 from the O's.
                  Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

                    He landed awkwardly on his front leg on the last pitch of the inning and went down immediately. Limped off the field and went straight to the clubhouse.

                      Well...what can you say. They can't stay healthy.

                      From DVS Sun-Times post game story:

                      "White Sox relief pitcher Michael Kopech tweaked his left hamstring making his final pitch of the seventh inning, and outfielder Adam Eaton left with a tight right hamstring. Both are day-to-day.

                      “There isn’t a guy on this roster if he gets hurt, we don’t feel it or feel for him — we’ve had our share [of injuries],” manager Tony La Russa said. “But in this particular case, he’s been on top of it. So keep our fingers crossed that’s it’s not serious.”

                      They sure have had a lot of leg issues haven't they including Anderson.

                        I believe in his last two starts Rodon has allowed three hits, struck out 23 guys and had ZERO run support. Yea, that's Joe Horlen all right!

                          “Hamstring soreness, day-to-day” was the exact quote.

                            He has definitely cooled off and hard. Obviously April wasn't sustainable so June will be very telling.

                            April .415/.455/.659 1.113 OPS
                            May .264/.325/.361 0.686 OPS

                              The only problem is that Sheets is ice-cold right now. Let him work out of the slump first. I want guys to be riding high off success when they get promoted, not in the middle of a slump.
