    ALDS Game 2 - Chicago @ Houston - 1:07pm CDT

    One thing about Kimberly that I remember with his time with the cubs was that he was bad for at least a year before he finally turned it around this year. Hahn obviously missed that or didn’t think it was important. cut the guy during the off-season and beef up the starting staff. You need at least seven starters to compete for an entire season. Having Rodon come up lame completely changed the outlook for this team.

    Lopez is pitching with confidence. He’s going right after guys.

    Burger was a high end high school hockey player. Those guys are athletes. He’s fine defensively now and will get only better with time. His issue is maybe his size. You don’t see many 6 3’ 235 lbs second baseball anymore so third is really his spot. I think yoan is terrific though I think he’s a little off this year but if yoan moves back to second then burger is in .

    GT 8/21: SOX @ TB, 12:10 NBCSN

    I understand resting position players but don’t rest them when your worst pitcher,who is likely going to need runs,is pitching.

    The ump missed three strikes on one tb batter alone when crochet was pitching. You fight all game to get in a position to win and then the guy behind the plate starts having a bad game

    Keep signing the Cubans and hit on some picks and that’s all you need to keep the train running down the track

    Micker Adolfo to Charlotte

    I agree. He’s been hurt a lot but he’s looking like he’s ready to go.

    Play a couple times a day- it’s a great sport. You can finish nine holes in twenty minutes. Cease actually throws the disc around Sox park.

    Gavin Sheets - STUD

    When he hit the FB at the top of the strike zone for the homer last night that eliminates an area that other teams scouts will try to probe for a weakness. Most guys can’t hit that pitch. Especially the upper cut launch angle guys have no chance

    The Sox could probably win 90 games on the mlb level with their Charlotte position players and their mlb staff. If they start losing pitchers they better have all their injured position players back.

    Any Sox player over the last twenty years making his debut that goes 0 for can’t hit and should be flipping burgers

    No dada should sit for ten days to get healthy so we can see how burger matches up. Not sure what Hahn is waiting for.

    Berger 3 for 3. Hahn is waiting to call him so he can cool off while in Chicago.
