    White Sox/A's-- Pre-series Discussion

    Dallas is a Playoff veteran and Giolito is not. Do you start Dallas in opener or figure their lefty will get hit and start Gio against him and Dallas to follow

    9/27 GT: Cubs @ Sox (2:10pm)

    Draw is good but I don't like having to go and play in Oakland. Hottest AL teams coming in are Rays and Indians so the rest are all .500ish.

    Twins will walk it off in bottom of the 20th and be totally exhausted on Tuesday.

    Ron Roenicke will not return to Red Sox in 21. Supposedly Bloom prefers a replacement with the same initials...........................

    Mistakes like this will get you a seat next to RR

    Maybe I posted too soon. The way the Cubs are swinging, we may have some by end of game.

    Kind of sad. We are losing 9-1 and the Cubs don't have one guy in lineup hitting at least .250.

    Which postseason opponent would you prefer?

    Seems like very few Covid issues the last month or so. Any new cases could really affect the playoff teams if they lose a key player.
  9. Not really. Offensively most of them didn't show up tonight.

    Fire Ricky

    Actually Boylen was probably used to offset the salary impact. They had to pay Hoiberg $5 Mil in 2019 and 2020 so they hired Boylen and he got $800,000 each year. Now they can pay Donovan big bucks
  11. But I will again ask the question, who makes these decisions. Does RR make the bullpen decisions , does Coop make them or does the front office "stats person" make them?
  12. One of the worst managers in baseball hashnis team playing with the 3rd best winning percentage in baseball. So maybe managers don't make a difference, but the team's performance in this shortened season means they do belong in the playoffs. Added to the overall youth of many starters on this roster, this team has put on a great showing. How is your favorite team doing ?

    I agree with the Big Hurt about Robert

    I agree on insults but why didn't you include the person who sent it to him as well???

    I agree with the Big Hurt about Robert

    Robert is hitting below .200 the last month and agree he usually does not have solid protection behind him. But Moncada is also hitting below .200 for the last month and he has had very solid protection. Sometimes the protection is not the problem. Players get into a slump and they have to fight their way out. Hopefully both will have a surge in the playoffs.

    Sox vs Twins. 9/16 - 7:10

    As Meatloaf said, "2 out of 3 ain't bad"

    Sox vs Twins. 9/14 - 7:10

    That leads me to our bullpen. I know bullpens are used differently these days. It is getting normal to see teams roll out 3-4 innings for the 6-9th. But I still think the percentages make it more likely that a reliever can blow a game because he is having an off-day. We used to see a starter go 7 and a set up man do the 8th and the closer the 9th. Now instead of 2 "relievers" we often see 4. Last night we saw Heuer stumble but Marshall saved him. But Rogers stumbles and blew the game. I think overall we have seen our pen use multiple relievers in close games and overall they have done a very good job. specially when the starter is out in the 5-6th inning.

    Just put Moncada on the IL already....

    That makes no sense. The Sox have a Trainer and Training staff. They along w some input from the player would decide if a player should be in the lineup, on the bench or on the IL. I don't think the FO would allow the manager to use a player if the Trainer feels they should not.

    The grandal hate is vastly overblown

    Grandal should not be hitting 3rd, Robert should. He is struggling w the bat and he strikes out at a high %. The lefty/righty lineup construction does not work if the lefty is struggling while Robert is exploding.

    The grandal hate is vastly overblown

    He also has a history of struggling in 2nd half of the season. Now this year is totally different with only a half-season and he is splitting catching time w McCann. But unfortunately he has started slower than he normally does so it is hard to predict how he will finish.
  20. I think the combo of Giolito and Keuchel should prevent that

    9.1.20 GT | Sox @ Twins | 7:10PM CT

    I would also say 2/3 of Minny's lineup are automatic outs.
