    Can this offense wake up already? Another solid pitching performance wasted.

    It must have been hard on morale when the fans didn’t show up at the ballpark after that six-game road winning streak. I think attendance is actually down since last year.

      You're killing me recently. Great stuff.

      For me I have to look at this last week as bad but some of it has been fun bad. I mean when's the last time the team gave up to inside the park HR in a week of games or less.

      Not worried. It's a crazy season and the team isn't 100% either in terms of expected personnel for now or for what comes and it's being compounded by slumps and injuries. Just going to enjoy some baseball and hope for the best.

        Big innings and hibernating bats.

        As Duncan Keith would say, “wakey wakey.”

          Keuchel is already calling out the team. https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/wh...rt-loss-tigers

            I don’t want guys leading us to be okay with the play out there. Reinforcements can’t come soon enough.

              Coming into tonight, the Sox had a slash line of .201/.266/.333 since coming back from Milwaukee. Including tonight, their 11 runs are the fewest in the AL during that span. Bad, to say the least.

                The bright spot of not having power until 9:00 last night was I couldn't watch this,

                I saw a tweet from Merkin that in the last 7 games they're hitting .091 with RISP and have stranded 53 runners.

                  Given the current state of the rotation, Sox can't afford to lose many games started by Giolito or Keuchel.

                    Interesting.

                    Hopefully it was nothing more than a letdown after losing that game Sunday night. Something like this forces me to remind myself that this team is still awfully young.

                    That being said, I can’t really begrudge Keuchel here. The guy has been busting his ass, doing everything in his power to stabilize a rotation in disarray. If he thinks that ruffling some feathers will keep things from getting worse, then he should go right ahead and do it.

                      Some say they look bored. I don't see how that is possible, Maybe stunned to realize that just about every major league pitcher can apparently shut them down with breaking balls.

                        If this were a 162-game season it would be so much easier to shake these kind of skids, because every team will go through them. It's a lot harder to do that in a 60-game season. The offense looks putrid, but obviously they're missing several guys though they're still getting good production out of the replacements. I think the inconsistent strike zones, which have been happening across the league, aren't helping matters, especially with Robert.

                          Are the strike zones really more inconsistent or is there a difference in the video framing? So many times the spot appears out of the zone, but the traced path of the pitch passes through the zone, or vice versa. It is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional trajectory through a three-dimensional target. The umpire presumably sees all three dimensions. Will that be the case for the soon-to-be-introduced electronic system? If so, bring it on. If not, why not? And if the players expect millimeter precision in the umps' calls, maybe they should talk to Yoan Moncada.

                            Good. Nice to see a veteran leading here which is something this team needs. Apparently the manager isn't getting through so hopefully a veteran does.

                              In the case of the Sox, this crew just sucks. The Sox have had this crew every series except for the Twins opening weekend and this past weekends series with Cleveland.
