  1. I wasn’t watching when it happened, but from reading the comments here, it’s anything from a cramp to being done for the year.

    Ti’Quan Forbes promoted to Charlotte

    Great post. Thanks for the update and the details.

    Dallas Keuchel has a problem with outfield positioning

    Interesting that you could read those comments in context and say that he was bitching. I have no problem with what he said.

    7/5 White Sox @ Twins 6:00 CT

    Good lord, their lineup is AWFUL without those two guys. No excuses, Dylan.

    7/5 White Sox @ Twins 6:00 CT

    Coming into the year, what were the odds that Brian Goodwin would be batting clean up on July 5? The crazy thing is that I actually like this lineup, other than that oddity.

    Burger called up

    Huh? He was asking for clarification on the last sentence of your post. What did you mean by “LHP”?
  7. How great would it be if Sheets keeps hitting all year to the point where we need his LH bat in the playoffs? Vaughn and Sheets in LF/RF and Eloy as the DH, with Engel and Hamilton available for pinch running and defense late in the game. Or perhaps Eloy in RF and Sheets at DH.

  9. And he has playoff (World Series) experience. If he’s 100% healthy, I like him as our RF, especially if a righty is on the mound.

    A lot of solid takes in this thread.

    Eaton to IL, Burdi up

    Eaton to RF and Sheets to DH against righties?

    GT 6/30 Twins @ White Sox 7:10 PM CDT

    I can’t remember if it was you or @Chicago White Sox who kept telling everyone to calm down because Grandal would probably end the year with the same numbers he does every year…which are the same numbers he put up last year when people were complaining about the signing. Well done. Thanks for being the voice of reason.

    GT 6/30 Twins @ White Sox 7:10 PM CDT

    That would be incorrect. I remember a Cleveland/Seattle game several years ago where I believe Cleveland scored 3, 4, 5 in the last three innings to erase a 12 run lead and ended up winning the game.

    Giolito has thoughts about Donaldsons comments

    My guess is that Josh went out there and told Lucas that he’s there to say it to his face. Lucas didn’t have much to say and just smoothed it over. Then Donaldson probably complimented Gio and the Sox and all was good.

    Bummer, Marshall to IL; Kopech back, Fry up

    This is going to be a shit show of injuries all season long, right up until the playoffs. Then everything will come together perfectly for a deep run.

    A little Love for Ryan Burr!

    Interesting mix of capital O’s and zeros.

    Bump. Another solid effort from Ryan in a big spot. Love it.

    If the over/under for Yermin’s hits today was 0.5, I’d be taking the over!

    Sox @ Astros, 6/18 7:10 Central

    My first thought after reading the initial post was, “Wow, this is a @Chicago White Sox style game thread. Let’s f***ing GO!”

    A little Love for Ryan Burr!

    The most impressive thing is that he has an ERA of 0.0 AND 0.38. That’s tough to do.

    White sox winner!!!!!

    Big win. If you could go back and change the final score of the game to 7-3, where our bullpen shut them down, would you do it? Or would you rather have it play out exactly like it did? I guess it’s a question of which is more important: Confidence of the guys in the pen or excitement/momentum that a game like that can give our club moving into the next series.

    I don’t think that scenario is very plausible. With 55 hits, I don’t think there’s any way that only 5 are of the extra base variety.
  25. Agreed. I think there’s about a 30% chance he calls it a strike. Either way, awful pitch to swing at in that situation. I just posted it in case people were curious exactly where the pitch was.
