  • *OFFICIAL* 7/11/21 Big Bats Blast Baltimore SOX 7 BAL 5 Postgamer

    Every Sox run came on a home run.

    All’s well that ends well. Vaughn is a beast; maybe Engel is, too.

    Should have swept the Orioles and did just that. Let's go to the break.

      More drama than I was hoping for, but all's well that ends well...

      Surprised they didn't let Cease come out for the 6th. Nice that Crochet and Kopech continue to dominate.

      And Yes... Andrew freaking Vaughn!

        6-3 road trip, after losing 2 of 3 to the Tigers and the first one in Minny I thought this wasn't working out according to Hoyle but the team picked it up and won the last 5.
        With the Indians rained out today the Sox finish the first half with an 8 game lead.
        Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

          The number of guys that have stepped us for this team is unbelievable. Today it was Vaughn and, really in the clutch, Engel.

          54-35 to close out the first half, and right now the best winning percentage in the AL. Best record at the All-Star break since 2006.

            Shocked that Liam coughed it up with two out in the 9th, but all's well that ends well.

              Vaughn was great. However, our bullpen is my major concern. The stress of the that 9th and 10th innings was too much.

                You got that right, bullpen tried real hard to give this game away. A couple of those balls the O's hit in the 10th nearly went out. If you assume Jimenez and Robert both will be back by mid-August there's no question now Hahn has to get two quality guys in deals and jettison some of the flotsam and jetsam that is currently in the bullpen. This bullpen is just not good...period.

                They really dodged a bullet today. Come October against a team worth a damn they may not be so lucky.

                Enjoy the break everyone!

                  As a Sox fan you should know this anxiety as a birthright. When have you ever from the first pitch to the last out sat back with a feeling of this ones going to be a blemish free blowout. Even 2005 had the faithful running for copious amounts of fortitude along the way. And yes, even with all the power this team can bring to play, I’d feel a lot more secure with a lights out bullpen.

                    Yeah let's go out and get some relief pitchers. Adam Engel turning into a power hitter has been a remarkable development.

                      In answer to your question, the 1983 team from mid July to the end of the season was the best I've ever seen a Sox team play, they were a juggernaut and you had the feeling they would win every game as they won the division by 20 games.......then came the Playoffs against the O's.

                        The season that made me into a bitter pessimist was exactly 20 years later, in 2003. I thought that team had the talent to win the World Series (and they stomped the Yankees in the Bronx and the Red Sox in Fenway Park) and then I attended the Jose Paniagua game, the single event that truly created the HomeFish you all know, love, and occasionally ban from WSI.

                        As the Sox enter the all star break with a huge lead, my thoughts turn to the 2003 Royals, who also went into the break that year with a big division lead.

                          Sox swept a series at Camden Yards for the first time since 2005.

                            Let's just hope we have a much better second half than in 2006. Agree the pen is scary, hopefully can rectify that soon but really it's nitpicking considering where this team is at through all of the injuries.

                              We will all find out how good the Sox are in the second half, pretty tough schedule.
                              Things would be a lot easier if we had Eloy, Luis Robert and Grandal in the lineup even though Vaughn, Luery and a bunch of other guys have really stepped up and performed outstandingly.
