8/27 Chicago Cubs @ Chicago White Sox 7:10 PM CDT

Hopefully this will be like that 2003 game where we were down 8-0 and win 14-9

Meanwhile, in "I should be the 5th starter" land...

Lemme guess, Dallas . . . the heat? The day of the week? Grandal being back? The position of the outfielders? The infielders? The Cubs fans? The Sox fans? 

Whose fault is this one, Kuechel?

My guy Dallas!

 

keep him in to eat innings. Don’t blow through the bullpen for no reason. 

The bullpen would give up just as many runs with how they've been pitching lately

If Dallas is DFAd, and a team picks him up, are the Sox responsible for the remainder of his contract, PLUS the 2023 vesting Hahn handed him if he pitches 160 innings next season?

well they gave up 13 runs last game.. lets hope we got something.

 

this team continues to be unimpressive in the 2nd half of the season.

Hes got negative value. They have to attach a prospect to him, maybe the Cubs would take his contract off us.

He's likely motivated given he'll be a free agent.  I think the right team would take a flyer on a guy who two years ago was in the top 10 for cy young votes.

One time my softball team scored 9 runs in the top of the first and gave up 9 runs in the bottom.  So there’s that.

There is a reason most of the board had Keuchel as like the tenth option in the 2019 offseason

I'm just glad Keuchel is doing his part, to make sure he doesn't pitch far into this game. He is only trying to make sure he doesn't hit the innings threshold in the contract.

Keuchel is the worst starter in the AL, you can't convince me otherwise

Some of these Hahn moves were eventually going to bite the team on payroll flexibility.  You’ve now got Keuchel, Kimbrel and Grandal if he can’t stay healthy.  And Moncada needs to put up at least an 825-850 ops to be worth $20-25 million, etc.

The problem with Keuchel is he's useless if he isn't starting.  I wouldn't put him in the bullpen.  I honestly think Tony has the guts not to put him on the postseason roster in the first round if he keeps pitching like this.

Seriously, is Keuchel's contract over after this year, or does he still have another expensive year left with the Sox?

Another very expensive year.  Maybe I’m missing something, but is his season next year the most expensive starting season in Sox history?
