    4/25 Games

    Also pleased about the two BB for Adolfo, after a string of multi-K games.

    4/24 Games

    MLBFarm doesn't seem to be working today. Just says no games scheduled. Here's the scheduled games: http://www.milb.com/scoreboard/index.jsp?sid=milb&org=145&ymd=20180424

    The downside to Avi's injury is that the OF depth was already bad and Engel will get more time. The upside is that Avi wasn't playing much better than Engel, so maybe he'll come back better.

    What Can Be Done to Fix this Mess?

    I agree that it will get better. This part of the process is like a pointillist painting - get too close, focus on the details of every game, and it looks like an unfixable mess. I would say that the only player in Charlotte of consequence is Kopech. Most of the "guys" are in W-S or on the DL.

    Good thing you aren't Hostetler then.

    What Can Be Done to Fix this Mess?

    Yeah basically the record means nothing. The sloppy play isn't good, but we can't know what steps are being taken to address this behind the scenes. The team will probably cycle through some peripheral guys (pen and bench depth) to try and keep fresh while the regulars struggle. My biggest concern right now is the effects of 4/5 of the rotation being unable to go more than 4 innings.

    The problem with keeping Gio up at this point is that he is taxing the pen badly. You can only get so many innings out of the long relievers. If they insist on keeping him in the majors, maybe it would be better if he worked out of the bullpen this season.

    Mostly agree, but it is hard to build chemistry when you're losing 10-0 every night.

    Gio looked good in ST so its rational to expect improved performance. He's going to have to be optioned, I think, not only for his sake, but to preserve the rest of the pitching staff.

    Tim annoys Verlander

    This dude, who has won every award and prize under the sun, getting peeved that a young player on a terrible team is trying to bring some excitement to the losing side of a drubbing, is a good example of what scholars call "bullsh*t".
  12. I smoked some of that Astro shizz and now i'm surfing on a rocket! Just kidding! I came to watch baseball, not do drugs! Happy Friday ya'll

    Sox at Oakland 2:35 CDT: Fulmer versus Triggs

    I hope we can all look back at the Oakland trip as the point when Yoan put it all together.
  14. QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 08:59 PM) These double plays are insane. We must lead MLB so far this year. I was curious so I checked - after that one, we have 14, which is tied for first with a lot of really bad teams that have played more games than us. So yeah, it's bad.

    White Sox @ Twins 4/12

    I am somewhat concerned that Yoan does not understand that pitches in the strike zone are strikes and will be called against him. He spends a lot of time admiring them, perhaps enjoying the arc in their motion, or the whizzing sound as it passes by, and very little time swinging at them.
