Framber is fantastic

The White Sox will hit Framber. He isn't the perfect match-up against the Sox as McCullers is.

He's fine. He's not intimidating or dominant.

LOL, Houston has one really good starter and he's pitching today.

Get off the ledge everyone, my goodness.

And how many good starters do the Sox have, right now?

I know. I was replying to those who were complaining about AJ.

Just. Split. In. Houston.

That is all.

This is really the main point. Results of today’s game doesn’t matter 1-0 or 11-0 if they win tomorrow.

Am i the only one here who feels embarrassed? Doesnt look like we even belong.

Same here. I turned it off. Switching back and forth. I don’t need to see the corpseball ABs for another three innings

So glad our manager decided that home field didn't mean a whole lot.

The Sox should look at every starting position player on their roster and ask would this guy start for the Astros, Rays, Doders, Giants. etc. Engel and Leury are resounding no's. Same (obliviously) goes for Cesar and he was their plan A plan at 2B for this year and next, which obliviously isn't good enough.

Same with Sheets

Giolito was the reason I was pretty confident they would split in Houston.  That is still in play.

Perhaps we need to advise this rookie Lynn it’s not a good idea to walk the first batter. I guess it’s a good thing it’s three of of five. Tomorrow we start even 0-0

I'd love it if Eloy was left handed. He doesn't even have to be as good as Alvarez.

Eloy is a bad first week of April from his career wRC+ dropping below Madrigal's. Maybe he'll get there, but expecting Eloy to be a great hitter does require some wish casting, at this point

Framber gets grounders 70% of the time. We love hitting grounders. Feels like a strength vs. strength matchup. It just depends on how may grounders find gloves with men on base.

HFA was a must.  We overdid the resting, particularly if we don’t get by the Astros.

What would HFA had done vs McCullers? 

You could play this game on the moon, we aren't hitting him. 

Series would be 0-1 anywhere we'd play it.

Yup, this was never a favorable matchup on paper, but tomorrow is much more promising.  Zero reason to lose faith even if it sucks being in a 0-1 hole.

man, the talent gap is enormous

Weird, the Sox were more banged up than Houston and yet... they had more team WAR. Weird for an "enormous" talent gap. Any other incorrect statements you want to make?

Sheets is useful and necessary depth, but he shouldn't be plan A for next season anywhere on the roster

Why does Dusty wear black gloves

didn't want to scratch his hands up burying the body of the 2021 White Sox.

Our Sox are very good to great at home.  On the road, not so much.  

Thankfully they considered HFA wasn’t worth fighting for. Why bother when we can rest our roster in preparation for a game 1 beat down!

They need to go out and fill those holes that the board has been talking about and for free agents that are really good and with playoff experience. I’m talking Kris Bryant level. Now will they do that is the question? That remains to be seen.

it's less about the talent and more about the coaching and training staff imo, they've hired a bunch of overpaid interns to run this team apparently.  night and day compared to the cre of the AL

The umpire’s zone sucks, but he’s not the one walking guys, giving up home runs, walking the first batter and allowing them to score or really just pitching like shit. Offensively they need to wake the fuck up too. If they play corpseball this entire series then the .500 record since the break will be telling.
