    5/21 vs Dodgers

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 21, 2011 -> 03:25 PM) Eh...he still hasn't looked great against the fastball, last night's HR was against a hanging curveball. When he "Turns it around" he'll be lining the FB the other way. And that'll happen when he learns a new stance and approach. It's so frustrating to see him set himself up for failure when clearly the tools are there for him to become a good player.

    QUOTE (iamshack @ May 21, 2011 -> 03:21 PM) How has Beckham looked the last few nights? Does he look like he might be getting his s*** together? Looks the same.

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 21, 2011 -> 03:19 PM) He needs to be in the lineup against LHP every game He needs to be in the lineup everyday.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 21, 2011 -> 01:50 PM) Had we walked Kemp, that identical ground ball could have been a get out of the inning DP. Instead, it's an RBI groundout and a free run. Did Mattingly and Ozzie agree to give each other a gift run before the game or something like that? That was incredibly dumb. Ozzie Ball.

    Hawk needs to shut up. No way any 2b covers first on that with the defense we were in. I guarantee Paulie falls back to cover 1st on that and we get the out.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 21, 2011 -> 01:40 PM) The stealth elf strikes again. He has clearly been playing too good when given a chance. He better not see that lineup again until june.

    QUOTE (BigSqwert @ May 21, 2011 -> 01:17 PM) Adam Kotsay doesn't scare you? The only thing scary about Adam is how royally f***ed this organization is with that god awful contract. At least Stone had a good line about the cubs that made me laugh.

    God our lineup is scary bad.

    Are you frightened? Or excited?

    QUOTE (greg775 @ May 20, 2011 -> 11:48 PM) I don't understand the posters who want Lillibridge to start. Guys, he's not a starter in the big leagues. He's a damn fine utility player though. Um, because he has earned the right to at least be given a chance considering who we have playing in front of him... So far this year he has looked like a much better baseball player than Juan, Gordon and Rios.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 20, 2011 -> 10:23 PM) Really? Humbers a Dfa candidate until at least next year. No one is giving you anything based on 3 months Playoff contending teams are always looking for starting pitching, and if Humber can continue to do what he has, plus with him being cheap... It's not outside the relm of possibility. Now the question is if KW would trade him and take the risk of becoming a stud for someone else?

    If we give up this season, and Humber continues to deal, I'd definitely look to deal him. I like him but he is 28, has a screw in his elbow, and clearly pitching over his head. With him being cheap and performing good, we might be able to get a decent young player for him.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:59 PM) So who told me that Sergio could go 1.2 innings earlier You could say haha if his stuff turned flat after 1 inning. But the case is that his fastball has been flat all night and he keeps throwing it.

    I just laugh at these so called major league hitters. You consistently stand there looking at borderline pitches with two strikes, then complain when you get rung up. Grow up and become professionals. Really wish Beckham got tossed there, Lillibridge actually has an approach at bat.

    God Beckham is so f***ed up at bat. He has no chance vs any decent fastball.

    QUOTE (Princess Dye @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:43 PM) No evidence points to this. Evidence is he has fallen off physically. Why didn't he fall apart last year when he was given a career high in save opportunities? He hasn't lost any velocity and last year he was never anything more than a set up man. This year though, he was anointed closer from the beginning. Quite a big difference there.

    QUOTE (Harry Chappas @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:42 PM) another case of a s*** player beating the Sox do they even employ a scouting department? 90% of the league does what Mitchell does there with that count and that pitch. Hell, people on this board can hit that pitch hard.

    I have a feeling Thornton will be back to his old self by July. It's obvious now though that making him closer was not good for his head.

    Konerko is in a real funk this week. Missed a lot of pitches this week that he usually drives.

    Alexei needs to shut up. Man that irritates me. Not only was it a strike, but it was close enough with two strikes and he got called on a lower pitch earlier so it shouldn't surprise him.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:25 PM) 5 outs is a lot for a regular closer. You don't do that against the dodgers in may. Not to sound like a grandfather, but if you said that to any reliever 10 or more years ago, they would laugh at you.

    QUOTE (greg775 @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:23 PM) Santos is our closer. He can't pitch this early in the game. Yeah, because relievers can't go more than 1 inning, right?

    Dodgers @ White Sox, 5/20, 7:10, CSN

    Thank you Don for giving us the 2nd out.

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:10 PM) Morel doesn't have enough opposite field power to consistently hit the ball over the right fielder's head. I like his swing more when he tries to pull the ball. How about this crazy idea... Go with the pitch and adjust your swing depending on the situation!

    QUOTE (southsideirish71 @ May 20, 2011 -> 09:02 PM) I love watching the sox in pitching duels with hot garbage. A near 5 era in the NL and we are clinging to a 1 run lead based on beck's jack. The greatest weakness to the Greg Walker offense is soft tossing lefties.
