  • *OFFICIAL* 8-28 From Goat to Hero; SOX 6 KC 5 Postgamer

    Yasmani atones for his bonehead fielding play with the walkoff HR.

    Hey, whatever works. We're tied for first now.

      Nail biting, remote control throwing type of game.

        I feel like previous Sox teams would have allowed the Royals to score 5 more runs after that defensive miscue.

            It’s fun to watch this team again, thank goodness; it’s been a while.

              Great thread title! I was so pissed at Yaz and then I thought "he's not so bad after all." I still am shocked at our defensive metrics. I would be lying if I said I agreed that we have a good defense. But its no time to split hairs. September is approaching and we are in first place. Maybe this will be our year.

                  What an emotional roller coaster game. I feel like spent time watching Abreu making throws from his butt. Grandal just showed he knows how to take ownership of his actions. This such a great team to watch. I’m so happy my 11 year old is watching this. This team has made baseball a must watch event for him. Seeing the laughing and true team play has been amazing. Ever since Keuchel called them out, they have responded. Thanks team for moments of joy in crazy times.

                    Wasn't purty. Didn't have much of a personality either. OK, I did like the way Lopez battled, not giving up on him yet. Colome looked like a closer that hasn't had enough work to keep him sharp. He battled too, gotta like it. I'm impressed by the vocabulary of the TV announcers. So are they. If they'd get it under control just a bit it would sound more like a baseball game and less like a college lecture. Just a suggestion, Jason and Steve. While I'm at it, the postgame guys don't do much for me either, One's hard to comprehend and more of a clown than an analyst and the other makes me pine for Leila Rahimi.

                    Thanks to Yasmani for making none of the above matter. Did you notice the subdued walk-off celebration? They learned something from Eloy almost ending his season during the last one. Easy does it.

                    Best reason Rick Hahn should be out of work? Statistics.

                      Lopez is maddening to watch, but he made some big pitches to get out of his jams - which is a commendable trait. I understand that he had some luck, but both sides stranded them. His sporadic control of three pitches (that I like) gets him into trouble. He can groove and have some hot runs and he is still fresh off rehab. Keep building him up.

                      Shame Foster's run came to an end. I think their plan is clear that he's going to keep stretched out for a two inning role. Oh well, hitters win a quarter of the time - shake it off.

                        Wasn’t purty as has been said, but nothing is better than beating them damn Royals. I could get used to that on a regular basis.

                          Don't stop now. The next two games against the Royals are going to feature pitching matchups that favor us, especially if it is Dunning on Sunday. I hope this team can get to 10 games over .500 before they go into Minnesota. I guess Giolito is being saved for the Twins.

                          Fangraphs now gives the Sox a 99% chance of making the playoffs.

                            What an emotional game. I’m really glad Grandal was able to redeem himself. Hopefully now that he’s had his “moment” in a White Sox uniform he can get on a roll moving forward.

                            Lopez has some shaky moments but he made some big pitches to limit the damage. I wonder why Gonzalez didn’t follow him? Maybe Renteria is saving him for Dunning’s start.

                              Not exactly sure when i went from depressed and despondent, while watching this team, to excited and hopeful, but it sure feels good.
