    CLE @ SOX, 1:10 PM Central

    It was hard to believe Ramirez was 0 for the series before that. He always hits the Sox well. Offense needs to step up. Lynn has pitched a good game.

    Who had "Eaton is involved in the first bench clearing" on their bingo card?

    That's a really nice lineup.
  4. Rodon's interview with Jason and Steve after the game was awesome. He comes across as humble, down to earth, and very appreciative of his teammates. It's just so cool to see this guy do what he did last night after everything he went through. I swear he got better as the game went on. Touching 99 mph on pitch 110 was awesome. We all talk about Abreu's play in the 9th, and rightfully so, but who knew Leury's play at SS when he snatched that hard one-hopper would be so important. And as someone else had pointed out, Moncada's play to end the game was not a gimme. That ball was smoked.
  5. I can’t stop watching the last out. What a game. Carlos was dominant all night. Collins called a great game. Abreu’s play was amazing. Mercedes is not human.
  6. COVID symptoms but has not tested positive. Keeping him away to be safe.

    And Engel, and god-forbid Billy Hamilton.

    It's a shame that the performances of Giolito, Marshall, and Hendriks were wasted. The first 7-8 innings were exactly as scripted. Giolito and Bieber were essentially unhittable, and it was a spectacular game for pitching. Marshall came in and again pitched his ass off and saved the day. Hendriks looked sharp. There was absolutely no reason at all for Williams and Lamb to be anywhere but the bench in the 10th inning. That's the most frustrating part.

    Trade Targets

    Calhoun, Marte, Polanco, Haniger, Bryant. Gallo, Blackmon. There are others who may be more likely/reasonable than others. But we know one thing so far: Nick Williams is not the answer. I'm not sold on Billy Hamilton being the answer either. If the Sox plan on competing and even making it to the playoffs, they're going to have to so something to fill the very obvious hole in the lineup.

    Sox vs Indians - Tuesday, April 13th, 710pm

    He'll have that by the end of the 4th inning.

    Maybe TLR actually forgot the lineup from yesterday. Maybe he has even forgotten that Vaughn exists. Too much alcohol does kill brain cells.

    I'm at a loss for words. I am literally having trouble typing because I can't make sense of this. Williams two days in a row. No Vaughn. No Mercedes. Jake Lamb at DH. If they win, that's great, but way too many questions as to why the lineup is being handled this way. If this is how it's going to be, Vaughn needs to go to the alternate site to play every day. Or, as someone else posted, Hahn needs to step in and take Tony's toys away.

    White Sox Winner!!!

    Soxtalk is about equality. We're mad when the team loses, and we're just as mad when they win!

    Bright spot last night was the bullpen for sure. Marshall gave up the one run, but coming into a bases loaded no out situation against a good hitting team and giving up only one run is pretty damn good. Bummer looked like the Bummer we know he can be. And Heuer was just nasty. The offense is concerning. Not getting one run when the bases were loaded with no outs in inexcusable. Through 10 games, this team has been terrible at hitting when there are runners on and especially in scoring position. That has to improve...and I'm sure it will. Moncada looked better last night, but he needs to stop putting himself in 0-2 and 1-2 holes. Even Steve Stone was getting a bit pissed about him taking good pitches. I think he'll be fine, though. Defensively, he looks really good at 3rd. He got a lot of work last night, especially when Keuchel was pitching. He's at his best on tough plays. And let's talk about Adam Eaton. I'm not sure even those of us okay with the signing expected what we're seeing from him. Who knows if this type of production will stick, but he's looked very good and has been clutch. He's already significantly better than Mazara was for us. It was an ugly way to win a game, but it's a win. And I do believe that a win, no matter how, does help with the psyche of a team.
