It’s like once they see a RHP starting, they lose all focus

Blaming our best pitcher for the predicament we are currently in is ridiculous.

At least the Twins lost. That's about the only thing that's gone right today.

That team on the north side is shitting their pants as well.

Is that 9 straight? 

18 straight playoff games without a win.

Dunning has looked real good most his starts, he should get the start with a short leash tomorrow.

I agree, he is the best choice of the triple A pitchers in our rotation.

The Astros' bullpen strategy is super interesting. They used all starters except for 2 innings in their 2 games.

I know Kuechel had a bad day but it is irrelevant.  The hitting is pathetic or I guess I should say lack of hitting. 

when the starter gets lit the fuck up like a Christmas tree, it certainly has an effect on the offense.  that game vs the cubs is the exception not the rule.

The White Sox only have ONE starter remotely close to money.

How on earth did they think they could go far in the 2020 playoffs?

Or maybe they did know and just didn"t give a damn.

Relying on bludgeoning teams into submission every game is not a winnable formula to insure an extended stay in the post-season.

And please, no more comparisons to 2005.

Although that team was a one-hit wonder (because the owner either couldn't or wouldn't take the organization to a sustainable level of excellence), it nevertheless placed itself as one of the best postseason teams in MLB history.

Jon Garland finished with more career wins then the current playoff starters combined. It will take time and development, and another veteran starter or two.

Wish they would replace Cooper with the SF Assistant who coached Lucas, especially if they lose McCann.

9 in a row retired by Bassit he may go the distaance.

Got hit Eloy and Mazara for Leury or ee just to see what he can do Leury and ee are worthless right now.

I know your point. It is easier to claw back in a game against scrubs. That comeback was nice, but isn't a big deal because of the competition. 

Nothing is easy in baseball.
 

Also, the Cubs were first in a division with four playoff teams. The A’s were first in a division where they were the only team over .500 so yeah, competition. 
 

Let’s all be positive, we have a sick offense that can put runs on the board.

Guess I am not following what you are saying?  We can hit left handed pitching and like he said when the opponent throws a RHP something happens to our hitters and it's not good.

Bassit completely shutting us down...Keuchel giving up homers.  Not good.  Hoping for some late magic but the A's bullpen is awfully tough even if we start to get to Bassit.

Mendoza using words like “sick” and “dirty” over and over again trying to be hip....then drops a “Grease” reference. 

I will not stand for Grease slander on the board

Twins now 0-18 in the postseason. 😂😂😂

Since 2004, we are 13 games better than the Twins in postseason play. I really want to advance, but the Twins losing combined with knowing this division is pretty much ours from here forward, makes me OK with whatever happens.

Although I’m getting to a point where I want Little Dick Nick to go away.

Ricky really throwing in the towel with Cordero followed by Fry. Didn’t he punt the game against the Cubs then we scored 8 late?
