  • *Official* 6/9 Eighth Wasn't Great Postgamer

    Obviously, potentially losing Madrigal for a while is the bigger story, but the way the whole team came undone in that eighth inning was frustrating beyond belief.

    The key play was the dropped 3rd strike. Bummer did his job against Adams, but Grandal couldn't catch/block the ball in the dirt and by the time Grandal was able to locate the ball it was too late.

      Given the pitching match up tomorrow, this was a brutal loss.

        I can’t understand why the shaky 8th-inning guys even entered the equation. Even if the errors still happen behind Lynn in the 8th, the walks and wild pitches do not happen.

          6th game this year the Sox took a lead into the 7th inning or later and lost.

          Bummer again personally responsible. That's the third one on him this year. The baseball gods are paying him back for shooting off his mouth in the spring. Yea I know about the dropped third strike but that doesn't mitigate the fact that he gave up two singles and a walk right after it and couldn't pitch around it.

          But four errors didn't help matters, just a poor performance all the way around except for Lynn.

          Now Jose' has joined the "slumping ranks."

          Try to get the series win tomorrow guys, or as Joe Maddon famously quipped, "Try not to suck..."

          At least Cleveland lost and Kansas City is losing.

            Injuries aside this bullpen has been a HUGE disappointment and has cost the Sox five games late. Bummer, Foster, Heuer, Marshall had been awful and Hahn needs to figure something out. Maybe bring up Fry and make a deal or two now before the price of poker skyrockets come the trade deadline.

            Last year I called Heuer / Foster the next "Forster/Gossage" combo...they looked that good to me. To say they have regressed and are a punching bag would be an understatement.

              These guys are all failing simultaneously. Heuer looked like the closer of the future last year, no idea what happened to him. Bummer was getting puff pieces written about him by the national media. Brutal.

                Not sure who you give up that wouldn't sacrifice significant young talent. Not a lot of options in the minors, either. I do not envy Rick Hahn having to consider this.

                    Any word how long Madrigal will be out.
                    Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

                        Unfortunately, I've come to expect the worst in regards to injury news with the Sox. Hopefully this will be the rare case of something looking a lot worse than it was.

                        Also, the play in in the 1st where the home plate umpire threw the bat and hit Jose is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen at a baseball game. That would have been just our luck to knock Jose out for significant time.

                          I fell asleep during the latter part of the game, and was hoping that i had a nightmare . i liked Madrigal right off and sincerely hope that he will be ok . what in the world is up with all of these hamstring injuries . Steve Stone mentioned that the pitchers were being injured because of the pandemic affected scheduling, and i suppose that the hamstring injuries are a part of that as well.

                            The starting pitching has covered up a lot of injuries and offensive warts all season. Not to state the obvious, but the Sox need another bat in the lineup.

                              Yeah, the only thing that was disclosed was "hamstring soreness". That could be anything from a strain to a tear. Here's hoping he only misses a couple weeks. Danny Mendick has shown some flashes in the past and he is pretty rock solid on defense. Looks like he is gonna get some more playing time unless they put Leury there and have Engel start every day in the outfield.
