    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    Because tanking is gods gift to GMs. It allows them to hide behind it even if things aren’t progressing.

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    Hate to tell you but it was the actual core players going forward that were the easiest outs for Verlander. 0-7 with 7k for Moncada and Eloy. The Sox approach was just fucking awful tonight.

    Awful awful game for Moncada. Abreu only one on team who doesn’t look overmatched by a fastball.

    He was always someone who would do well in the low minors. I still don’t think his stuff will work in the majors. With that said, man has the drafting been bad for the Sox. There is nothing exciting in the minors outside of Robert and Cease. I saw some highlights of Madrigal and nothing has changed. Lots of weak contact, even his double yesterday was just a high chopper.

    Swinging at sliders off the plate, taking fastballs for strikes

    Our record with Castillo catching is hilarious

    Not that it matters, but idiotic to pitch to Correa there

    Castillo’s effort on that 0-1 pitch to frame it was comical

    Castillo continues his horrible season. Can’t wait for him and Yonder to be gone.

    So Ricky got caught sleeping and didn’t have Bummer ready?

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    He’s off the plate a good amount and also pulling off the ball. It’s a bad combination and he’s been terrible against sliders and curveballs this season. I honestly don’t know why anyone ever throws him a fastball over the plate.

    White Sox @ Astros: a game thread

    As a whole, he’s been really bad this season. Not a lot of hard contact at all. I’m actually shocked at how bad he’s been. Meanwhile, 0-17 this series for the players that matter. I miss Orioles pitching.

    More outside sliders, more missing them by a mile for Eloy.

    No hit stuff tonight for Verlander

    For love of god, Eloy needs to move closer to the plate. He can’t touch any slider.

    For some reason Sox hitters always look for the offspeed pitch vs Astros
  20. That was amazing promo by Frazier
  21. Yes supposedly Montero hated him

    Teddy Greenstein said on the Score that Tribune will continue not to cover Sox games on the Score due to lack of interest. Cubs stories average 10-15 times the number of view pages as Sox stories do.

    Barons got 2 hits tonight. At some point, they have to get hot right?
