    6/23- Sox at Rangers, 2:05, WGN

    I disagree. An important part of the QS is that a pitcher has to go a minimum of 6 innings---very important for a team without a deep bullpen. It's true that if the pitcher gives up the maximum of 3 ER and pitches the minimum of 6 innings, his ERA for the day is a pedestrian 4.50 (which would be great for a Sox pitcher not named Giolito). I would venture to say that most quality starts last more than 6 innings and fewer than 3 earned runs are allowed. If you want a garbage stat, I've got one for you: the Hold.

    So 8 plate appearances is enough of a sample size to determine a player needs more work?

    Sox sign Hector Santiago

    Hahn should be known as "Mr. Waste Management" for all of his dumpster diving.

    Is Ricky the worst manager in White Sox history?

    Maybe the question should have been " Worst manager in your lifetime as a Sox fan" or "Worst manager of the last 5 Sox managers". Obviously, there are no living fans who can truly answer the original question since the team goes back to 1901 (I think).

    Do you know this for a fact or are you assuming PED use because of his rejuvenation? I ask this because there was an excellent story in Sports Illustrated a couple of months ago about how Houston is on the leading edge of the new analytics craze. Since he was traded to the Astros, Verlander has spent countless hours delving into all the new-fangled stuff such as how to increase spin rate, etc. I say that's the reason for his second life.

    Is it against the law for a switch hitter to bat left-handed vs. a LHP? 😏

    Or the 76-year old Tommy John.

    Why? Does he have a wooden leg and won't be able to get to the ball? (Jimmy Stewart in the Monty Stratton Story).

    Glad that we're not in that group anymore.

    Harry Caray Book...

    My favorite Piersall comment during a game: a very slow Sox runner (Konerko?) was trudging around the bases like molasses, trying to score from 1B on a hit in the gap. Piersall asked, "anyone catch the brand name of the refrigerator that (the runner) has strapped to his back".

    I've got an opening for a "middle back injury". Any takers?

    I think this is a first for Renteria: the 3 worst hitters in the lineup are batting 7-8-9. Nary a one of 'em in the cleanup spot.

    I believe they also took the season series against the World Champion Boston Red Sox last year---with a 100 loss team!!!
