  • *OFFICIAL* 8/8/21; Eloy Thunder Takes City by Storm SOX 9 CUBS 3 Postgamer

    Now that’s the kind of offensive output we’ve been missing.

    Back to 20 over .500. Division lead is 10.5 games.

    Swept those bums like they should have. We don't sweep on the North Side very much, so this is a moment to be enjoyed.

      Well that was fun . Tim Anderson, Andrew Vaughn and Eloy Jimenez all with a big night . how long before Andrew Vaughn is an all star . Renaldo Lopez looked sharp . the broadcast itself, seemed pretty strange.

        Now that’s more like it. The Klu is sweetly soothed. I love them big numbers.

          Excellent game, strange broadcast team though. Made me long for some 'Sox Math'. LOL

            With the exception of Cease's shakiness in the 2nd and 3rd innings, this was a very enjoyable game to watch - weird broadcast notwithstanding. It also felt like the most complete TEAM win (offense, defense, and pitching) in a very long time.

              Here are our remaining 50 games (23 home, 27 away; 28 v non-contenders: 22 v contenders):

              MIN: 3 away
              NY: 3 home
              OAK: 4 home
              TB: 3 away
              TOR: 4 away
              CUBS: 3 home
              PIT: 2 home
              KC: 3 away
              OAK: 3 away
              BOS: 3 home
              LAA: 3 home
              TEX: 3 away
              DET: 3 away
              CLE: 5 away
              CIN: 2 home
              DET: 3 home

              Is it too much to ask to finish 30-20, and wind up with 96 wins?

                It is a pathetic broadcast. To think they interviewed Al Michaels too who is one of the all-time greats and then the world is left to sit through that clown show of a broadcast....anyway the more important stuff was fantastic! Cease scared me but held it together just enough. Robert back tomorrow. Good things coming.

                    It was awful. They were way up their own asses. At least Al Michaels did play-by-play while being interviewed.

                      Great game tonight. Dylan had me worried for a few innings, but he settled down in the end. I got tired of hearing about how we're supposed to cry for the ****ing Cubs because of their "Fire Sale". Eloy's a beast. Luis is back tomorrow.

                        Again, I couldn’t spot any differences between the photos…

                        This was just a typical ESPN ****cast, just on the parent channel.

                          I appreciated Matt Vasgersian's Dan Pasqua reference. On the whole though, I think I like it much better when national media ignores the Sox. Alex Rodriguez hurts my ears. We'll get punished more this week with ESPN game tomorrow night, YouTube on Wednesday and Joe Buck on Thursday night. ESPN 1000 will look mighty good for those broadcasts.

                          Andrew Vaughn has obviously put a lot of work in the outfield. Thinking longer term, it may not be a bad idea to give him more time in RF and make LF the spot to platoon/match-up.

                          I also think it's good to see Reynaldo Lopez pitching with a chip on his shoulder. He's channeling that in a good way.

                            Who were the announcers. I watched the game on mute.

                              You can't have a much better weekend than this gang...now no letdown in Minnesota please.

                              By the way the three first inning home runs on the road is a franchise record.
