    Fire Tony Chant

    How do you have a first base open, but decide to pitch to guy, leading to a grand slam...? 😂
  2. It's just hard to imagine a team getting their "swag" back when we seem more worried about addressing all of the ouchies. By no means am I saying I am tougher, I get hurt sitting at my desk somedays... But sheesh... Got to hope the training staff actually knows how to get these guys healthy and confident enough in their bodies to play confidently. But I don't see evidence of our ability to do that.

    O's v. Sox, 6/23/22 GT

    Fair, I just don't think (considering how much else TLR already screws up) that we need to lose it because the guy doesn't start his first game up. He was called up because we are in a pinch. It's not because we think he will be the world's next great infielder immediately.

    Is this sarcasm?

    Mendick, Engel, and (maybe) Robert leave with injuries

    This isn't the first time Luis Robert has inexplicably not taken extra bases in his time with the Sox. It is quite strange. He really just seems to dog it sometimes, or totally forget what he is doing.

    GT 6/21: TOR @ SOX, 7:10, NBCSC

    If you can dodge a wrench...

    Is There a Good Loss?

    If we're going down this road... Luis Robert and AJ Pollock both had hard flyouts earlier in the game. 397 (.860 xBA) and 388 ft (.720 xBA) respectively. The expected BA on both Houston homers was .210. Yikes.

    Eloy rehab starts again 6/21

    If you don't want Yoan, you must not want to win this season. We are almost dead last in walks. Can't make up for that with positive attitude and fun spirit.

    GT 6/14 White Sox (28-31) V Tigers (24-36) 6:10 Chgo

    Oddly enough, Burger being out improves our defense.

    Fire Tony - Then What?

    The biggest problem with this team is that we don't seem to use even the most basic analytics tools. Ozzie might actually make that worse. No.

    And That's a White Sox Winner !!!!

    Moncada saw a lot of pitches last night, which was a bit encouraging. But he also seems to be fouling off a ton of pitches.

    Lynn returns, Grandal to the 10 day IL, Burr waived

    Why has Burr pitched less than 10 innings this year across minor and majors? Seems a bit strange. Did I miss an injury?
  13. I have yet to see proof of anything... just a bunch of jibberish on Instagram. But maybe I'm just an old man now...
  14. The text in that tweet is bordering on jibberish... I feel like we got almost the exact same rumour last season, with the same crappy quality. Have no idea how to rate the credibility of it. Maybe not worthy of Soxtalk? Just saying.

    Yoan Moncada seven years ago

    This is a good post. This team is going nowhere if we are 30th in the league in walks. I feel like we need to keep running him out there until he figures it out. This one day off, one day on stuff probably isn't helping. Unless there is something bothering him, or going on, that we are not aware of.

    TLR 2022 Thread

    Sousa is not good. So point taken... But I remember Steve and Jason saying that Sousa falls off the mound to the third base side. So making it back to first is hard for him.

    GT 6-4: Dodgers @ Sox (7:10pm)

    Well in his last 9 games he has an OPS of .355... However, in the 15 games before that his OPS was .810.

    Moncada + Grandal

    I have nothing to add. Grandal and Moncada's struggles are mystifying to me. Although Moncada's sample size is smaller. Hope they figure it out!

    2022 White Sox drinking game

    Take a shot every time Jason Benetti subtly suggests that LaRussa is doing something strange.

    Sorry I have been away. What is the deal with Moncada? Hurt?

  22. Baseball is suffering... you are right.

    FCC might get a call...

    Oddly enough, Rosario botched a somewhat similar play later.

    Cleveland at Sox-Game one, 7:10 CT

    Last year Grandal caught 12/62, or 19%, which is a pretty significant decline for his career. McGuire has caught 30% of runners for his career.

    Cleveland at Sox-Game one, 7:10 CT

    If you were wondering... Grandal and McGuire have nearly identical framing numbers according to Baseball Savant, but both are good. McGuire has one passed ball and 9 wild pitches in 126 innings. Grandal has two passed balls and 6 wild pitches in 114 innings. Grandal has yet to catch a base stealer. McGuire has caught 3 base stealers. Would be interesting to see the FIPs of the pitchers they receive, but not sure how to get that stat.
