    I disagree. I think the dive made it closer.

    White Sox Winner! RIP Piranhas!

    Are you and others really taking his comment seriously? It was an obvious joke, and I'm assuming it was made to poke fun at the whiners/complainers.

    Straight-Line WAR Projections

    I admittedly don’t know much about WAR when it comes to pitchers, but if Rodon keeps this pace for the entire season, how is that only 6.5 WAR? Lynn has had a better full year than what Rodon’s year would look like if he kept this pace? How is that possible? EDIT: Perhaps it’s because he’s only started 5 games, but a record of 25-0 with a 0.58 ERA seems like it should be worth more than 6.5 WAR.

    I missed it. What is this in reference to?

    Eddie Rosario was the last player to walk to the plate against the Sox and then score a run. And that was on Sunday. That’s absolutely crazy.

    This. It’s so crazy to read all the complaints.

    Wow, I just looked up McCann's stats this year. Has he been brutal all year?

    A batter hasn’t scored in any inning for three straight games.

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    If Abreu is running, the throw still goes through to second.

    You need to add context. TLR was confident they would throw Hamilton another breaking ball because he looked terrible on the first two (I'm sure everyone watching was expecting another breaking ball...I definitely was). If he does throw another breaking ball, it's either low and inside, which gives Leury a very high probability of being safe, or he hangs it in the zone, which gives Hamilton a chance to put it in play.

    I'm not so sure about that, which is why I didn't hate the steal attempt.

    If that's the same breaking ball he was throwing before that pitch, I believe Leury is safe (or Hamilton puts it in play). And yes, Hamilton needs to make contact, but if he doesn't, you need a base hit by Lamb. I would want that potential hit by Lamb to score two runs.

    This is false.

    I actually don't hate the steal attempt. They were peppering Hamilton with breaking balls. Just happened to be a fastball and a perfect pitch to throw on. And it's not like it was the bottom half of the inning where one run wins the game. I was hoping for two runs. But I can't understand pitching to Winker. Terrible decision, and not just in hindsight. I was screaming for them to walk him before a pitch was even thrown.

    Lamb was up. Not Anderson.

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    Huh? Without the double switch, Hendriks would have been due up 4th last inning. Having Hendriks run was the correct call. Having Hamilton ever bat in a major league game is not the correct call.

    GT 5/5: SOX at CIN

    Why are people complaining about Hendriks running here? Would you rather have him batting this inning? I certainly don't want to take him out of the game.

    Fingers crossed that this post doesn't age well!

    Tigers @ Sox 4/29 Game 2

    I’ve been watching the draft at a buddy’s house all night. Anybody willing to give a quick summary on how Cease looks so far? I see the box score, but how’s his command?

    Luis back, Crochet IL, Mendick 27th man

    I wonder if we’ll see a couple different “back strains” this year with Crochet and Kopech. Wouldn’t be a terrible idea.

    He never said the models are a trillion times more accurate. He said over a large sample, the model will be more accurate than a scout 99.99999999999% of the time. EDIT: I'm not trying to argue the math. I'm trying to argue the context of the math.

    Texas @ Sox

    Remember that one time when Greg Maddux needed only 76 pitches to throw a complete game against the Cubs? Well the Rangers have 106 pitches after only 3 innings. Ouch.
