Alright boys, today is the definition of a must win as the Sox are currently in 10th place in the AL at the 35% mark of the season and wouldn’t make the playoffs at the moment. It’s officially time to stop fucking around and being swept at home and going to two games under .500, regardless of no fans, would simply be a kick to the dick. On the mound today, we have a man named after one of the great American cities vs. some dude named after not just one but two of the lamest states in the entire US. Our boy Dallas has been as good as advertised this year, keeping the ball on the ground and working towards a 3.04 ERA and 3.48 FIP. Meanwhile, this Dakota character has only made one start and gave up 4 runs in 4.1 innings including a couple of blasts. This was also 21 days ago, so dude should be rusty but then again this is the White Sox he’s facing. Dakota is very much a sinker-slider type pitcher and I could see that poising challenges for our RH hitters. We desperately need a plan at the plate today and that is to not chase his slider down & away. It’s without question his put away pitch and our hitters need to expect it when Dakota gets a favorable count. As for the lineup today, if it were me managing I’d finally give Abreu’s ground-ball inducing ass a day-off (he has literally started every game) and go with some combo of Collins & Encarnacion at 1B & DH. I know I’m in the minority, but this is a perfect spot for my boy Collins and I hope Ricky finally realizes he does have a LH power bat on his roster not named Mazara and that it’s ok to use him in certain matchups. Regardless, let’s get a fucking win today and welcome those Tigers on a high note! Let’s fucking go!!
Ok, it’s officially time to wash away that bitter taste from yesterday and even up the series! Today we face some kid with 28.1 career innings and a Fu Manchu-style mustache. If our young studs can’t rough this douche up, then we might as well call the season. I mean, just look at this dude and tell me you wouldn’t be embarrassed if he struck you out? No doubt the bats are going to be hungry today. Keys to the game are as follows: Dallas keeps the ball on the ground and out of the stands Moncada, Eloy, Robert, & Timmy bring the heat offensively More Mendick in our lives please (sorry Leury)
