7/18- Astros at White Sox, 1:10

Recommended Posts

With a lefty on the mound for Houston, I'd expect the lineup to look something like this:

TA 6, Moncada 5, Abreu 3, Vaughn 7, Engel 8, Burger DH, Hamilton 9, Mendick 4, Zavala 2

That was awesome!

Do it!  

Let's see if he can play right too! 

Disregard.  I forgot Engel was on the team in my Burger sweats.

They don't need him in right.   They need him to replace Leury who was seen trying to hide in that trashcan

Love the new look today of Abreu, Vaughn, Moncada, Burger batting 3 through 6. Be interesting to see how that plays out.

Vaughn just missed a couple last night, could've easily had 2 dingers but for a fraction of an inch on contact

Valdez has actually been better against RH hitters, in the last couple of years. Not by much, but enough to make an all RH hitting lineup, less than optimal. I would go by who are the better hitters, regardless of handedness. Wow, that will probably shock some of you. At the least, I'd rather see Goodwin instead of Hamilton. As I've often stated, I prefer a balanced lineup. If they get into the Astros pen, there will need to be a lot of substitutions, with Moncada being the only one who can bat left handed.

Don't forget the  "and die" part.

Awesome Lineup! No Collins for Rodon the only concern, but Zavala had time to work with Rodon since Thursday/Friday, so it should work out.  Valdez is tough, so should be a nice low scoring pitchers duel today (Sox -130 / 8 under -110).

2021 OPS Splits vs. LHP: 

  1. SS Tim Anderson .695
  2. RF Adam Engel .819
  3. 1B Jose Abreu .908
  4. LF Andrew Vaughn 1.036
  5. DH Yoan Moncada .708
  6. 3B Jake Burger .347 (only 9 PAs vs. LHP)
  7. CF Billy Hamilton .925 (Should play every game vs. LHS)
  8. C Seby Zavala None (First game vs. LHP)
  9. 2B Danny Mendick .504

Burger with the 321 wRC+ against RHP so far is very nice. A couple more big hits today and it starts to be very interesting if it isn't already.

His strong suit was against LHP so would be great to see him pound Valdez who is a quality pitcher.

He has a 60 wRC+ against LHP in his career over 895 PAs, I’m not sure 33 PAs this year should change our opinion of him.

I like Hamilton as a role player, but maybe look at the 862 PAs against LHP coming into the season before saying that.  Goodwin has historically been leagues better against LHP and it’s not even close.

This seems extremely dumb.   The bullpen had an off day yesterday. If they can't hold a lead without Kopech why are they even on the team.   

Kopech needs to start that DH not Reynaldo

Have to also consider Hamilton's incredible defense vs. Goodwin's terrible defense.

It's the short side of the platoon (1 in 4 games), and only until Robert returns, so we're talking maybe 5 more games, and then perhaps 3-4 more games the rest of the year to give Robert a breather. Sox pitchers love seeing Hamilton in CF.

I have Vaughn hitting a wall-topper today. Vaughn is ready to graduate rookie status and be an anchor in the lineup.

Long time lurker.  I usually read all of the non-game threads.  Was 12 years old for the 59 go go sox.

Not all the games are of equal importance the way the division has shaken out.  Beating the Astros matter.  Potentially losing a game to the Twins has no importance.

I was originally critical of the lineup roulette we saw from TLR early in the year, but I do think it's helped a ton in keeping bench pieces ready to go and able to contribute.
