    The consistent hard contact, poor command, and lack of whiffs is alarming. Even during bad starts the last 2 years this stuff didn't happen.

    The strike zones have been consistently bad all series.

    Mendick has looked like a natural in RF so far.

    No command and lack of a quality 3rd pitch really hurting him right now.

    There is literally no catcher in baseball people would be happy with if they don't like Grandal. His track record is as good or better than any catcher in the game.

    Pitchers are treating Grandal like he's Barry Bonds in 2001. This is amazing.

    I'm fine with being as rigid as possible with Kopech's usage. Keeping him on a schedule that's similar to that of a starter seems like the surest way to keep him stretched out while making sure he's building up innings. If they don't use him tonight, and Gio goes ~6+ tomorrow, it becomes a slippery slope where Kopech could go too long (imo) without pitching.

    Grandal sustaining this walk rate given how poorly he's been hitting is one of the most inexplicable things I've ever seen.

    That's going to be true for every team across baseball. 5th in runs per game (entering tonight), 3rd in wRC+, 2nd in position player fWAR, 7th in team OPS. It's definitely been frustrating at times, but I don't see how you can make an evidence based argument they haven't been one of the best offensive teams in baseball. This team has lost a ton of close games, but I think that has significantly more to do with the manager and an underwhelming (so far) bullpen than the hitting itself.

    It's interesting that Soxtalk is one of very few places where Benetti isn't universally beloved. Non White Sox fans who regularly watch out of town baseball rave about Benetti and Stone + the media coverage of him is all overwhelmingly positive.

    That's one of the worst missed strike calls we'll see all season. The strike zone in both games of this series has been atrocious.

    2nd in wRC+, 4th in runs per game. But obviously the offense falls off a cliff with Leury in for Robert.

    If he were healthy, I'd be fine with giving Luis Gonzalez a shot in CF. You can't keep trotting sub replacement level players out there and expecting better results.

    Tauchman would have been a game changer for this team. Just anything to avoid the black hole we'll get from Leury and Hamilton, please.

    The best healthy CF in the organization is 1-2 with a 2B in Charlotte. 2B, BB, & SB so far for Jose Rodriguez.

    Going from 92 in inning 1 to 97 in the 3rd is Verlander stuff.

    Robert either would have caught that or had the ball bounce off his head. You aren't wrong.

    Rodon falls behind 2-0 and calmly pulls the string on a nasty change... my how times have changed.

    I know you're joking, but John Olerud would be a fantastic outcome for Vaughn's career.

    Vaughn is so late on everything. I don't think there's a pitch he could consistently drive to the pull side for power right now.
