Garbage. Absolute garbage. This better not be how this season ends.

If it does this better be the swan song for a whole lot of folks in this org.

But when your biggest problem is in the owner's suite, it's almost impossible to realize significant change.

How the hell do you into your first post-season in 12 friggin years with 2 starting pitchers ????

The Sox will need at least 8 runs to win today.

JMO - this game will now come down to what Cease can give the White Sox. He's the only one who can hold this together and give enough to keep the back part of the pen available.

Montas looked nearly unhittable. But he just had to sit down for half an hour.

At some point a pitcher is going to have to step up if we want this. 

In the meantime the offense needs to go to work.l,

Throwing hard is good when you get it over the plate. Otherwise not so much

PEOPLE - THIS TEAM WASN'T EXPECTED TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR. The team did great and the future looks great. They may lose this round, and it'll suck. They will be even better next year. They may win still. The bullpen meltdown is just unfortunate.

 

Some of these takes in this thread would get a guy like me banned!

This game is far from over, but no idea who is pitching these last few innings.

It has to be Cease. Give him a long warmup and let Foster throw a little more if needed. He's the only guy who we've got who can give us 2+.

So who was he gonna put in? Fry? You would have complained the same

Start with foster instead of rodon.  That's who.  With bases empty maybe he's less nervous.

Anybody mad at Ricky is a human piece of shit

I am mad at Ricky, I was suspicious of pulling Dunning so quick but once he pulled Bummer I knew he had no idea what he was doing. Once Dunning is pulled you have to expect our best bullpen arms to go at minimum 2IP. A couple guys on should not result in Bummer getting pulled in the 3rd. We have the entire game ahead of us and a limited selection of good arms. He is managing the early innings like we are in the 7th.

Funny thing is Ricky is following this board’s advice.  This is not on Ricky.  Guys have to perform.  Let’s go bats, and hope for Foster, Marshall and company to right the ship

Well at least we pushed our young pitchers a lot and might be dealing with a catastrophic injury

Offense needs to step up in a BIG way right now, and we need a pitcher to go more than three batters.

I’m swearing it right now, I will not watch next year if Renteria is still managing.

Theo knew he was not the guy and moved on immediately. If Hahn, KW and especially Reinsdorf doesn't see it, then for the next 6+ years we'll always be the "good but not good enough" team.

Has to be Dylan Cease I'd imagine

This clown is talking about the intentional walk. That was the smart play. It was Rodon facing a righty. One of the better outcomes would have been walking him anyway.

Seems our pitchers are constantly behind the count so to intentionally load the bases is the thought process of an idiot.

That IBB was idiotic. Honestly, he should have been fired on the spot. It was Chad fucking Pinder! Skip him and load them for Canha, just to get rid of a fucking schmuck who shouldn’t have been pitching in the first place??

Not happening, we are going to make Montas with his 5.60 ERA look like a Cy young winner.

Bummer was done.  He was missing by a lot.  Same with Heuer.
