Recommended Posts

Ok Sox fans, I am ready to watch our ace Ace wash away a disappointing deadline, shut down the homer happy Twins, and put the team alone in first place.  

Lets Do This

No Grandal either is kind of annoying. Can't he play 3B? :P

He should be DH'ing over EE.

Grandal had some ugly ABs yesterday, so I'm not too upset that he's sitting out.  Lets hope EE sees Hill very well tonight.

Can this be the point in Nelson Cruz's career where he finally starts sucking?

He is the most godlike elder ballplayer I've seen in awhile.

I‘d be content if the Sox win a game this series. Anything more than that is a bonus in my book.

Same, but given how much the Twins have been struggling, it'd be nice to kick 'em while they're down. 

Donaldson is still hurt, but he could be back later this week.

I hope this is the series we finally stop pitching to him. 

Minnesota's lineup used to be completely stacked, but due to injuries, he has much less talent surrounding him in the order right now. Hopefully that means we don't have to throw him anything good to hit. If I'm Gio, I don't throw Kepler or Cruz any fastballs in the zone.

Like Tim Raines sliding awkward so as not to break the vial in his back pocket.

That's 2019 mentality right there.

The Sox are better than the Twins.  Time to show it.

With Gio and DK going only taking one would be a huge disappointment.  I expect Wednesday to be a bloodbath so taking the first two is a must.

Just stick Moncada on the IL already. Stop with the "day to day" bullshit. He's likely missing most if not all of the Twins series anyways. Mendick continues to get ABs, Madrigal is back, Yolmer>Goins so the depth is fine, etc.

40 year old lefty... Sox are going to tee off on Hill

Hill has a ERA over 6 in 19 innings against the Sox in his career. 

Not sure how many of those innings were before he got good.

You beat me to it.  We should not "expect"  to lose.  I get a little shakey on 5th starter days but that's about it.

I know the Twins are struggling but it seems like they put 10 up against the Sox in every game. I hope they don't have something on us.

Welp, here we go! Looking mad forward to this game, just got off work, making some dinner (Fresh walleye + roasted potatoes + peas), and looking forward to seeing if the White sox are for real or not.
