8/24 White Sox at Blue Jays Gamethread, Cease vs. Berrios, 6:07pm CDT

Recommended Posts

Dylan has been much better at home (.628 OPS, 2.61 ERA, 3.48 K/BB) than away (.727 OPS, 5.86 ERA, 2.92 K/BB) this year.

I foresee calls to demote Cease from the playoff rotation (at least until Dallas’ next start) and pages in the game thread with complaints regarding pitch framing.

Feel better about Tim’s future availability:

Tim Anderson described his issue as hamstring tightness. He said he took ground balls yesterday and ran, and will do both again today. He said he wants to be out there, especially with recent losses but is “just being smart. We all know what the ultimate goal is”

I've had enough of Gordon Beckham in the booth, so tonight it is White Sox Baseball, the mute button and this....

Goodwin is a solid .1 war player who rarely makes good contact. I would promote him somewhere out of harm's way.

It would be swell if Cease had a good night and the guys at least get him a field goal.

Dare I dream a touchdown?

The field goal feels like dreaming at this point.

This is more a lineup that illustrates bad trade deadline roster mgmt than anything else

The only hole in the Sox lineup when healthy is backup C and MAYBE a part-time DH if you're not comfortable platooning some combination of Vaughn/Engel/Eloy covering RF, LF and DH.  

You don't trade valuable assets in year 1 of a multi-year championship window for bench players, especially for what it would cost for a reliable power bat that can play the field when needed.  

I'm frustrated as all hell, too, but injuries aren't Rick Hahn's fault.

 

ETA: You could say we could've used a second baseman at the deadline, an upgrade over Hernandez, but I'm struggling to find an option outside maybe Kris Bryant, who would have cost the farm.

Tony has enough sense not to play Lamb in the OF in a meaningful game barring a roster catastrophe. Fear Tony will sit Vaughn / Engel to get Goodwin's strong side platoon bat into playoff games, poor defense be damned.

The Jays are 3-7 in their last 10. Ridiculous to think we can't beat them with this lineup.

The Jays are a decent team not a playoff team. Should be able to beat them once.

Enough of this shitty offense, time to get things back on track. Lineups will be posted when they are available, and they will 100% contain TA, willing it to happen!

Leury is back, thank goodness....at least Hernandez gets a day off. TA, still on the side of milk cartons.

Nonetheless, 5-9 Goodwin, Leury,Lamb, Mendick, and Collins batting back to back is brutal.  And will not even mention their D.   Got to be our one of our worst overall line ups of the season.  I am concerned that we may be getting used to losing.

Oh I would be stunned if Goodwin was healthy and wasn't in the game 1 ALDS lineup if it's Greinke or McCullers out there.

Is he better than Sheets?  Sheets should be brought up. Our bench now is horrible.
