    That's a big ol' CGSO winner!

    That was a masterful game Giolito threw. He's completely turned himself around thanks to that high school coach of his. To get a split in Houston was impressive. Now we'll see what happens in Minnesota. The Twins clubbed eight home runs again this afternoon in a slaughter of the Angels. Second time this year they've hit eight in a game.
  2. Have that game in my library. Joel Horlen threw a complete game in a 4-1 September Saturday win if I remember right. It was NBC's Game of the Week.

    Giolito, Jose and Anderson. Jose will start.

    How about Dallas Keuchel in a White Sox uniform?

    Saw some stories at MLB.com where they are dropping hints he's going to sign with (who else?) the Yankees right after the draft. Guess they no longer give a damn about the Luxury Tax threshold (which they are already over...)

    Time for some changes, Rick

    At MLB.com they had some updated stats on the Central teams and this stood out to me about the Sox: "The Sox are in a four-way tie for the worst strikeout-to-walk ratio, have the second-to-worst WHIP in baseball and the highest walk rate in the MLB (10.6%)." Normally I'd say, "Coop will fix em'" but I have to cut him some slack since he doesn't have a whole lot to work with.
  7. When Ed was doing nothing but color he was terrific. Go back and listen to the 2005 broadcasts for example...it was uncanny how often he'd predict something a pitch or two ahead of time and it would come to pass. But he is completely out of his element as a play by play guy...but JR likes him, so there you go.

    Speaking of "dumb" I've seen White Sox ownership do a lot of dumb things over the decades so I put nothing past them. And thanks for the "courteous" reply.

    Balta: By the way have you seen what Frankie Montas has been doing this year for the A's?

    Sox @ Astros 5/22 Gamethread

    Well they won't get swept. Nice game all around except for Vieria.
  11. Part of it was because Rooney wanted to go back to St. Louis, part of it was because the radio station wasn't willing to meet his salary demands.

    I have to agree with Balta myself. I see very little in the system that inspires confidence. Or as I have put in in the past, a bunch of "retreads, no-name's, has-been's, cast-off's..." Basically four A stuff. Burdi is about the only one who I think can make an impact. The rest are all flotsam and jetsam.
  13. Maybe constantly being on a losing, disorganized team was getting to him?

    True although they ran him out there constantly trying to salvage what they could and it costs them games. I guess my point is they don't do it regularly and it takes an extreme situation for them to go that route. Maybe it will happen with Alonso but at this point I have my doubts...Ricky remember continues to bat him fourth even though he's hurting the team. They keep trying to salvage some face with his trade / salary.

    I may have forgotten them but can you give me examples. Did they cut Dunn? LaRoche? Keppinger? et al. Not trying to be snarky just can't think of anybody off the top of my head save for Santana and they only owed him peanuts.
