    Sox at Twins 8/10, 7:10

    Tomorrow's game is apparently a YouTube exclusive and will likely be treated like a national game. I think tonight will be the Sunday lineup. https://www.mlb.com/live-stream-games/youtube

    Sox at Twins 8/9, 7:10

    I saw your post (nicely done, btw) and understand every game is important. I also understand that AV riding the pine tonight is absolutely no excuse to lose the game. The Twins are straight garbage.

    Sox at Twins 8/9, 7:10

    A Monday game in the middle of August against a bum Minnesota team, heading in with a 10.5 game lead, and people are bitching about load management? We can, and should, win games against the Central without Vaughn in the lineup. We did it without Eloy. We did it without Luis. We did it without Grandal. A game off for Vaughn isn't the end of the world. I, too, wanted to see our entire core on the field tonight (minus Yas) but that day will come sooner than later.

    Sox at Cubs 8/8, 6:10 pm

    If he were given due credit for never really having played pro ball prior to this season, he would be the runaway favorite. Seriously, one of the most impressive things I've ever seen a Sox prospect do in my decades of fandom. Alas, the beginning of the season put him in a hole that will be tough to overcome for whomever decides on ROY.

    Are the Sox overusing their starters?

    I don't understand why people (not picking on you) have such a difficult time understanding that Kopech's job changed over the course of this season as guys like Heuer, Foster, Bummer, and Marshall proved to be wholly unreliable in high leverage situations. Think back to preseason and people were so excited to know that the pen was so stacked that a guy like Kopech would just be used as a long reliever. Instead, the first half of this season, Liam was literally the only guy who could be counted on to hold a lead out of that pen, with Crochet semi-reliable. When that happened, Kopech's role had to change for the sake of this year's road to October baseball. Will it cost us some Kopech starts next season? More than likely, but the AL central will be absolute TRASH again next season. We'll have time to build him up as the season progresses.

    Sox at Cubs, 1:20

    I like Seby's approach there. He knew Hendricks was going to pound that outside corner (and out) with the way the ump is calling the strikes, might as well sit on one out there and drive it the other way. Professional AB

    2-0 count is 0-2 without swinging the bat. This is egregious.

    Ump appears to just be guessing.

    8/1 Game Thread Sox vs Guardians 1:10

    Really need the top of the order to start producing. TA and Jose have essentially been ghosts in the lineup. We aren't going anywhere if these guys don't get it going. We can't rely on the bottom of this order to keep us competitive.

    Bus repair for the Army is definitely a physically demanding job, especially in that Western heat!

    Goodwin had a couple of fantastic ABs last night....something like 15 pitches in 2ABs. He's coming around.

    Sox @ Royals, 7/26, 7:10, Game Thread

    I'm a huge Tim fan but he appears to have gotten a bit full of himself this season. I don't know how to lookup clutch stats but it sure seems he's not near as clutch as he's been the last two seasons. He also seems streakier than he's been in the past, not to mention the absence of power. He's still a fantastic player but I can't help but look at his performances the previous two seasons and feel that he's fallen short this season.

    Sox @ Royals, 7/26, 7:10, Game Thread

    There's some strong psychology at play with this team, imo. The rallying cry since spring has been to work past the injuries and stay in contention. Once guys come back, and we fortify at the deadline, we'll be in great shape. This roster, minus Eloy, has busted their asses day in and day out to win. Now that the idea of things getting a bit easier is in sight, they're exhausted mentally. Done. Eloy isn't going to be a savior this week. The sooner Hahn makes a move, no matter how minor it is, the sooner this team will become reinvigorated. I also think that the impending roster moves are weighing on those who aren't 100% confident in their position on this team moving forward.

    WHITE SOX WINNER!

    Eloy first one back tomorrow....and we weathered the storm by going 19 over .500 and building a 9 game lead in the division. Let's do this shit

    Question on Brewers/Sox tickets last night

    Sounds like you bought from a resale seller on TM.

    Pitching worries

    I think this was likely the plan heading into this season but, with the bullpen performance thus far, there's no way you can take him out of his current role (minimal as it's been). It's been said ad nauseum, but we literally have only 2-3 reliable arms out of the pen that can be reasonably counted on to hold a lead. If the plan is to skip starts, we'd better get used to the idea of seeing guys like Steiver and Lopez start some games between now and the end of the season.

    What the Brewers Series is Telling Us

    We don't need them to all come back and be world beaters. You're talking about replacing Goodwin, Sheets/Burger, and Collins/Seby. Even decent performance will eclipse what we've gotten out of this trio. Also, regardless of how hot/cold the returning players may be, they demand respect from opposing pitchers and can drastically change the way our lineup is attacked. 2-0 count to Vaughn with Collins on deck is going to be pitched considerably different than it would with Yas/Lu on deck.
