Sox haven’t fared well in Oak the last 3 years but it’s someone different.  It won’t be more Minnesota or Cleveland misery.  Oakland is the lesser of those three evils no doubt.

Easy to stay dispassionate when I didn’t watch (for a change), but seems like a pretty good day.  We avoid Cleveland.  We get a lefty starter in game 1.  Our offense woke up and battled back again, scored 8 runs (sounds like overcame some bad calls too), and we lost because a guy who will not be starting in the playoffs anyway gave up a bunch of runs.  Yes the division would’ve been nice the playoffs are the real show.  Am I missing something?

Is he even pitching the first two games? 

Oakland's rotation is not good. Manea's ERA looks bad but his peripherals are actually really good. Bassitt has been good this year, but he doesn't have impressive stuff. Luzardo isn't great yet, but he has great stuff. They have Fiers and Minor as the back end of their rotation.

Oakland doesn't have a bunch of impact players after they lost Chapman, they have solid players everywhere and that adds up. Their backend of the bullpen is also lights out with Hendricks and Diekman.

Yes.  This team has lost 8 of its last 10 games.

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.

...all after clinching a playoff berth and continuously throwing crap at the wall like It was spring training (which it may as well have been).  New ballgame now.

This team doesn't have an on/off switch.  Momentum matters.  We are playing the worse baseball out of any team in the field right now.  Its nothing to be happy about.

On the bright side, Oakland might be the only team worse than the Twins when it comes to winning playoff series.  1-11 in their last 12 playoff series, with the one win being against said Twins.  Lol.

Hey, at least we will not be travelling a whole lot if we win the series with Oakland. Only a short plane right or they can drive to LA. The Sox should’ve won the division. The Cubs were practically handing them the division.

Not a fan at playing at the House of Horrors for Sox historically.

That's why Engel needs to start in CF, Robert in right, Garcia in LF, and Eloy as DH.

honestly...Eloy slightly tweaking his ankle may be the best thing to happen to the sox. Eloy as DH and Engel in LF makes the sox so much better as a team. We wont have to see EE except for a pinch hit and the defense will be NAILS

Grandal will be at DH. McCann is catching Giolito game 1.

then expect Eloy to miss the first game. NO WAY they are putting him in the outfield there.

The Athletics are about to play the only team in major league history to go undefeated against LH starters in a season.  I feel sorry for them. 😁

Oakland, huh?

That's an amazing match up.

Cleveland would have sucked, big time, with their pitching staff and how we have been playing.
New York would have been OK, but their hitting is scary and I think would decimate our weak SP.

Oakland really doesn't have shit. Their offense is not good, their pitching has outperformed their skillset. 

Honestly, I'm super happy with that -- I think the White Sox will own this.

I do have them losing to the Twins in the next round tho.

This one hurts only because a win would have led to the perfect first round matchup - Astros

We don't have Geoff Blum to rely on anymore

Runaway MVP. It won't be close.

If he is MVP, get the statue ready at The Cell or whatever we call Comiskey Park nowadays.
