Rodon is just stupid this year, crazy to see this version of him.

Fully agree.  There is still time, but as each day passes it just seems like they want to keep him a high leverage, 1 or 2 inning reliever role.

Don’t see that changing for him or Crochet until Tony bites the dust.

Now that the game is over, this Astros team had been struggling hard at the plate. Correa and Alvarez are both 0 for their last 20. We caught them at a good time. We probably could have swept this series, if Leury didn't leave his brain at home on Friday.

If he'd have been this guy the whole time, he'd have been traded by now.

More like defend your guy’s dumb ass decisions regardless of how dumb they may be.

Sox have more than two relievers who can hold a four run lead, it’s asinine, especially with a DH tomorrow.

I would argue beating the Astros and a series win was more important  psychologically for the team. We may not even need a closer tomorrow!

Great pitching. Would have really loved Lynn to have started the series and swept these cheaters, but its great to see them dominant to end their time with them until October

Wow! One hit combined shut out against one of the best teams in the majors. A dominating pitching performance.  Strong message sent to Astros and other top teams that Sox are indeed a top team to reckon with.

Rodon has given up more than 4 runs, ONCE all season.....amazing to see the turnaround in a guy, that was amazingly close to being cast off for good, from the organization.

HUGE series win only because the Sox needed to know that they can beat this team. They dominated them these last two games.

I am going to date myself big time, but this reminds me of the great pitching the 1967 Sox had. Only that team didn't have any hitting while this one does. Looking forward to my trip to the park tomorrow.

It's July 18th,  Kopech has 36.1 IP and Crochet has 27.1 IP. That's asinine. 

It's about right for Crochet.

I know that isn’t the plan tho. He’s in this rotation next year. He has to be. Just sort of curious management of him all season. He’s not ready to throw 3-4 innings right now tho so im mostly indifferent about tomorrow’s start. But this 1 10 pitch inning BS needs to stop. He needs at LEAST 6-7 full blown regular season starts the rest of the way. Innings need to climb.

Not miserable... trying to field the best team possible come October. Im sorry some fans live game to game like that matters. This season has and always was about getting Kopech ready to be a starter for October and next season. Especially if you are going to lose Rodon as a FA. 

Not saying they'll do this. What if they give Kopech some spot starts while skipping starts for rodon?

The Astros vs. White Sox paradigm has shifted 180 degrees. These 2 wins and the Lynn signing has really made for a great week end.

Not saying today’s game isn’t important.

Have confidence in others holding onto a four run lead. Want Kopech stretched out either today or preferably tomorrow for 2 + innings. Jose Ruiz is more stretched out at this point.

Being prepared for October far more important than fretting over a four run lead in July. Then he burns Hendriks, with a DH tomorrow.

I’ll say it again, Hahn needs to get seven new relievers by the deadline if the Sox can’t trust a single one of them with a four run lead for an inning. They were all available, Friday was the only day anyone was used in over a week.
