GT 6/25: BAL @ Sox (1:10pm)

Recommended Posts

Today is a must win game.  It’s really that simple.  Win today or blow this shit up.  Let’s see what these guys are made of coming off an embarrassing performance yesterday.  If they have any heart, they come out and beat the fuck of these Orioles.

Also, we better get Sosa in the starting lineup.  My pitchfork will be ready & waiting for that lineup card to be released.

Have tickets for today’s game. It has to be delayed right? Rain from now until about 2 in forecast.

This Orioles pitcher has 24 career outings, a 6ERA this year, and his 1.7 WHIP matches his career 1.7 WHIP precisely. His K/9 is 4.2 and his K/BB is 0.93. In his last start in May he gave up 3 runs in 0.0 innings. This is not very good.

But he’s right handed so…

Team calls up young blood.

La Russa: You'll get Leury and Gavin Sheets god damnit

Ha ha.  From not playing to hitting lead off. WTF?  Naturally, Sosa can’t play instead of Leury, he has to supplement “the Franchise.”  Anyway, I hope the kid can get his first hit before they send him back down.

Is La Russa actually insane?  Like I’m super happy Sosa is playing but why does he need to hit lead off?  I thought Tony said he was trying to take pressure off the kid like two days ago?

I'm beginning to understand what happened to Rick Ankiel.

Fingers crossed Sosa mashes.

Not sure if this is the right thread but man oh man Steve Stone is such a tool. Sad to see what he has become, used to have a lot of respect for him.

 

Saw this and it‘s really pathetic.  He’s going to carry that water until the very end.

Do you think it’s possible Hanh said quit fucking around and play this kid we brought up and Tony is being petty and making him lead off

One more thing:  if Sosa is enough better than Leury that he hits 7 spots ahead of him, doesn’t that imply he should get more at bats on a daily basis?

It honestly seems like this may of happened.  I could see Tony batting him lead off and hoping he fails to help his case to play his shitty vets.

I definitely think this is possible

What’s funny to me is you have this completely lifeless, underperforming team and as manager you have a chance to insert a young exciting player into the lineup and possibly revitalize the club.  Instead, we got to give at-bats to Leury Legend and his 25 wRC+ because reasons.  Hopefully Sosa takes advantage of this opportunity because he may not get many more shots to claim a spot on this roster.

With the added salt in the wound of playing Leury for the third straight game.  Leury is 1 for his last 20, 4 for his last 29.  It's wonderful

I called this yesterday in the game thread. I had a feeling Garcia would make is way in at SS and that is when Sosa would play.

Pathetic that Garcia continues to get at bats over and over again

Breaking News: After expressive extreme disappointment in the way Leury Garcia had been utilized, prior to an afternoon game with the Baltimore Orioles Rich Hahn announced the Chicago White Sox have Designated him For Assignment. When asked for a comment Hahn simply stated, “Ask the Hall of Fame Baseball Person in our dugout.”
