Thats terrible from Hendriks 

I dont want to hear any excuses for this dude. He was paid big money but clearly his balls shrivel up in big situations. I'm fine if judge beats you with his bat, but to be a chicken shit and not even throw strikes is unexcusable 

exactly.  come in and get the job done.  do your job.

So Hendricks has to be better there, throw a fucking strike..but once again he's not putting his players in a position to succeed. 

Whatever. Bummer couldn't get anyone out. Hendricks couldn't get anyone out. Was tony supposed to go with Alex Mcrae there?

Honestly not impressed with the yankees. They needed 2 walk offs including a miracle triple play in order to beat the Sox playing their worst baseball of the year

Not impressive yet they decisively beat us and highlighted some really big concerns for us.

Sox only tested for the first time against a good team and failed miserably. Swept. Played like shit as well as managed like shit.

I don't want to hear any more about "run differentials." The Sox have proven absolutely nothing yet. They are a team looking like they will play for a weak division, not for playoffs.

They split against the Red Sox

Couldn't throw a strike anyway.  The entire pen has regressed this year. 

Hendricks was always more of a luxury than a need though. They always should have gotten a right fielder instead.

The only good thing to come out of this game was Vaughn getting a shot of confidence taking out Chapman.

The bullpen has been brutal I have no problem using Bummer there at a certain point the guys at the back of the pen have to produce.

Stop, recent history has shown unless its a blow out slot them into a position to win. TLR has failed at that time and time again. Can he go crawl back into the drunk tank he came out of?

Can't wait for the TLRstans to defend this choice to have Bummer start the 9th....and continue..

I’m no TLR lover by any means but I didn’t have a problem with Bummer there.  Didn’t have a problem with it at all

Sorry, I am not familiar with TLRstans but don't expecting Bummer to be able to pitch in the 9th doesn't seem like an unreasonable decision to me.  If you can't count on one of your best relievers in a tie game in the 9th then managerial decisions aren't your biggest issue.

Putting your closer into a game with bases loaded and one out in a tie game is not “whatever” but it’s ok if you don’t understand the game, it can be complicated sometimes.

It was a god awful signing. Oakland got everything they could out of the guy. There isn't much left in the tank.

Gallo or Haniger, a RHP reliever, and trade Gavin Floyd er.. Cease and Vaughn for a real SP and this team contends with the Yankees

Whatever,  the sox deserve to get swept.  Terrible with runners in scoring position,  shit bullpen and dog shit manager.  End of story.

Hahn is no builder of championship caliber organizations.

He's terribly miscast in the corporate world.

But then again with Reinsdorf  you"re behind the 8 ball from jump.

Who IIRC hadn't caught fire yet. Perhaps I'm wrong. 

But they played and were managed like shit the whole series. Clearly there is no real proof this team can be a real contender yet. And the bullpen problems only seem to be getting worse.

I agree, I am pretty much indifferent about TLR.  Criticizing TLR for keeping Bummer in is pretty much just going to come from TLR haters.

The White Sox do NOT have a closer.

They don't have a competent manager either.

Yep, need a quality pen to go far, the Sox pen is pedestrian.

its not all on TLR - but his moves with the bullpen continue to fail.

 

Nice hyperbole though.

At this point Liam has been a waste of money, this is why you don’t pay BP pitchers for career years. I can’t imagine how much he will regress by the end of his deal. But I also believe the mismanagement of the BP by TLR or Katz has really been putting the players in wrong time/position.

I really do believe it is partially mental still, both with the players AND the effects of TLR being the manager.

3 games under against the AL East. The Al Central is a cupcake division.
