Sox just lost most embarrasing DH in 120 years of MLB

Recommended Posts

"That's just the game of baseball, folks."   Predictably will be uttered post-game by RR.

"Don't know what happened with the pen today, we have a lot of faith in our guys coming through, didn't get 'er done.   Need to get on the road and bounce back quickly tomorrow."

 

Oh, and we still haven't even faced their far and away BEST pitcher in Jack Flaherty, Giolito's high school teammate at Harvard Westlake.

I missed the second half of game two, but this team doesn't deserve to be a playoff team.  I still think they'll get hot at some point, but the measure for error is shrinking by the day and I still don't see a sense of urgency from the coaching staff or players.

are they really that much better than they were first half of last year?

If they get swept this series, Ricky should get fired. He won't...but this is pathetic. Zero preparation from their offense is just sad and completely on the coaching staff.

Did Abreu really say Keuchel's speech was unnecessary?

This has the potential to turn really ugly.

YES Abreu is part of the problem.  We signed him thinking/ hoping he could be the “Big Papi” for these young WSOX players.   Instead hes setting an example swinging at a bad 3-0 pitch and grounding out meekly to the pitcher.

You don't think David Ortiz ever did that? Abreu isn't the problem.

I'm really not liking Nomar Mazara at all.

Abreu loves playing with zero pressure. He doesn't like the pressure Keuchel put on him to win. It's pathetic. The guy has never been on a winning team and it doesn't seem like he cares to be on one. He just wants to be the "leader" of the team, joking around and having a jolly old time on the field while having zero expectations.

Like Guillen said in post game.  Cards organization is built to win thus seemed to not miss a beat.  The white sox too often just appear to not be ready or prepared.

They’re not just a bad team but a bad organization that up against Cleveland and Minnesota will never win because Reinsdorf refuse to make the necessary Structual changes in the front office. There is a lot of talent on the roster but it is vulnerable to right handed pitching and plagued consistently by a rotten defense. And they have terrible luck with free agents in part because they always reach for the middle shelf for players that seem to be on the downside of their careers.

If he did say that, then fuck him.  He's part of the problem too.

That 1st inning in game 1 and 5th inning in game 2 were two of the most demoralizing and disgusting innings I have seen as a Sox fan in awhile, but that may be the Star Chicken Shotgun IPA talking.

This was a really brutal double header on many levels.  That said, salvage the series tmr and go from there.  The most disheartening thing is realizing Renteria has at least the rest of this year.

Ricky is going to ride Grandal and his sub .290 SLG% hitting 3-4 the rest of the season, as if he's got 140 games left to turn it around. 

The sense of urgency is so aggravating. 

1000% Hahn will BS us this next off-season using the COVID shortened season as his and Ricky's crutch on why we shouldn't judge the team by this season's results.

If the Sox miss the playoffs in a season when 8 teams in the AL qualify, Hahn should be fired.
