  • *OFFICIAL* 9/14/21; What Bullpen Problems? SOX 9 LAA 3 Postgamer

    Bullpen threw 5 scoreless innings. Sheets with 4 RBI; he and Robert both doubled and homered. Magic number is 7. Division lead is 12.5. Still on pace for 93 wins; one game behind Houston for the #2 seed.

      Now get me a win for (most likely) my final regular-season game tomorrow night.

        I like today's lineup a LOT - even with Leury in RF. With Seby sent down and Vaughn taking his apocalyptic slump to the IL, this might be the first lineup we've seen in a long time where no one feels like an automatic out.

          Wish Giolito had been able to pick up the win but his pitch count was getting up there with all the strike outs.

          Nice solid win.

          Sheets looks like he's going to be a factor with this club in the coming years.

            Nice night on offense. Just keep putting up runs until LAAAAAAA cried uncle. Everyone but Abreu had a hit and Jose walked 3 times and got HBP.

            Mostly the backend of the bullpen did a fine job giving the main guys another day off. Fry striking out Ohtani was kind of the cherry on the sundae. That slider for the swinging strike 3 was NASTY.

              Jace is creating a problem. His old self has returned. I did think the wipeout pitch was a curveball. Does he have a slider that does that? Could he be eligible for the post season? Anyway the kid's a troublemaker.
              If it's up, put it down. If it's down, put it up.

                For a 6 run win it felt a little more stressful than necessary with the pen loading the bases seemingly every inning. However great job for them to make the pitches to get out of it and save the "A" crew for another day. Really was concerned that Eloy had knocked himself out with the catch in LF but thankfully he was okay. So critical to stay healthy now.

                  This is an excellent point. Kopech, Crochet, Kimbrel and Hendriks are all rested and ready to pitch.

                  Kopech in particular can probably pitch two innings tonight to relieve Keuchel.

                  And if there is a blowout, or extra innings, based on pitch counts Tuesday night Burr and/or Fry could probably pitch an inning as well.

                    How great it will be if Sheets is the real deal, the kid is a beast and could wind up becoming the best lefty power hitter and home run leader in the history of the franchise, Harold Baines had 221 in a Sox uniform. BTW, Robert is no slouch either.

                    Too bad Giolito was pulled after 4 innings but can someone explain how of the 5 relief pitchers, Bummer got the win, just curious.

                      In the situation like last night when the starter doesn't go five innings and the Sox never gave up the lead, the "winning pitcher" is left to the discretion of the official scorer based on relative effectiveness. Normally Wright would be the winner since he entered and finished the fifth, but the official scorer must not have deemed his performance to be win-worthy.

                        I was thinking along those lines that it was the Official Scorers decision so I guess there is no steadfast rule anymore that the pitcher of record would be the guy that finishes the 5th inning.

                          With the team that they have built here, it sure looks as if the powers that be, really know what they're doing after all, and it seems like the White Sox could be one of the powerhouses of baseball for years to come.
