Chicago White Sox

ALDS Game 4 - HOU @ CWS - 1:07 pm CDT

Recommended Posts

The earlier start time has motivated me to take off the entire day and meet up with people, who are now going because of the game being PPD, and tailgating beforehand.

Good call

The guy he had start game 1 is fully rested. The guy he should have had start game 1 is fully rested for game 5. The only way this makes sense is if Rodon is suddenly back to his version of earlier in the season. If he is not, they are starting a guy who almost didn't make the roster over the guy they thought gave them the best shot at winning, and Lynn would be pitching at home.

Sure, but there may be a difference between the move that ensures internal logical consistency and the move that is best for the team based on what we've seen so far.  Are you confident running out a guy who has gotten lit up time and time again by this team, game 1 starter or not?  I'd rather roll the dice with Rodon--Lynn is waiting in the wings anyway if things go south.

If Rodon is throwing 90, the Sox are in trouble.  And Lynn in the wings? If Lynn is good enough to be next up or start game 5 in Houston (I hope it's Gio, who actually had great stuff his last start), then he should start game 4 at home. If Rodon has his stuff, then starting him makes a lot of sense. But the Astros aren't the Reds a day after being eliminated.

He did this 3 starts ago against Boston. It's definitely possible that he can bring this type of stuff again.

Get to the game however you can. You may never get another chance.

If Rodon really is back in form, he's the guy I want pitching in Houston.  
 

If he's in form I want him tomorrow against their Ace. Gio did good enough last time out and inspires confidence in a GM 5

Yeah...I don't think I want Lynn pitching against Houston anymore. Bullpen or otherwise. Plan ahead and save him for the ALCS and have him start game 1 against Boston or TB.

We even sure what the atmosphere is going to be like tomorrow at 1pm on Tuesday with a make-up game time?  I'd be shocked if the crowd was even half as rowdy as last night. 

It will be rowdy. No doubt about it.

If Rodon can only go a couple innings, its pretty much necessary. I'd prefer Lynn over Reylo.  If pen needs to eat 5-7 innings, Lance is going to be needed.

Hopefully TLR's comments that he was "in pen" last night is indication that a potential game 5 is Giolito's for sure.  With TLR, I don't take what appears to be common sense thinking for granted.

I think there is a definite advantage to the Astros throwing out McCullers but I'm not sure Baker will make the gamble.  Because it suddenly turns Game 4 into a must win.  And as we saw in Gio, there is no guarantee that he will pitch this well.

it will definitely be rowdy, but a 107 start time is a slap in the face to White Sox fans attending, and all fans who want to watch. They were going to have multiple games being played at the same time today. I don't know why they couldn't do the same tomorrow. The only thing I can think of is traveling after the game.

Same here.  When we named him our Game 1 starter, I didn't realize how much he'd struggled against HOU.  Last handful of starts (going back to his time w/ TEX too):

10/7/21 - 3.2 IP, 5 ER

6/19/21 - 4 IP, 6 ER

9/24/20 - 5.2 IP, 9 ER

9/3/20 - 6 IP, 6 ER

I'm fine not seeing Lynn again in the ALDS.  Save him for Game 1 in the ALCS if we advance.

Just wait for the expanded postseason next year. More of the same for another round.

Unfortunately may need him to throw a couple of innings if Rodon only goes a couple.

Thank goodness it's postponed. Would have been agony with rain in the area and Tstorms. Now pitch whoever is ready, win and bring it to Houston. ... Should be interesting to see if this cheaters story progresses with a full day to fester. No reason for the Sox to go there. Think it ... don't say it. It's bad for baseball and very stupid to pretend motivation this way.

I don't see how anyone can look at this years final standings/playoffs race and say "expanded playoffs is the answer!". Really hope they don't forever dilute the game with more expansion.

Definitely agree with all this.  Personally works out nicely for me since I’m already off tomorrow and gives me sometime to rest up before I commute back to STL but having it at 1:07 just blows for most people. 
 

Also, I highly doubt it’ll match the craziness of last night but it’s still going to be rowdy there.

As for the game itself, as I said before I hope they pitch McCullers tomorrow but in no way is it a must win for them if they do.  No matter what we still have to find a way to win in Houston which is an issue.
