White Sox v. Oakland A's

Even 2007 had the entertainment of Fields, Owens, Andy Gonzalez and Wasserman.

 

This is just beyond terrible. Well, at least Bassit's still fighting, there's that.

 

 

A lot of the positives are being erased for me until/unless Avisail Garcia really impresses. Of course, excuses about the injury will be provided, with SOME validity, but there's far from even 50/50 certainty right now he's a 5/6 hole power bat or run producer at this point in his career.

 

At 7-9, okay...it is what it is. But that's not what the acquisition was billed to be.

 

You also have to remember how great Montas looked in the minors this year.

Bassitt showed the ability to recover from his rough introduction. Might not be ready at the start of next season, but he's got a chance to be a useful piece.

 

He looked better to me tonight than Erik Johnson did last year.

Huge K of the surprising JD Martinez with runners at 1st and 3rd and two outs...

 

Shields with only 2 hits and a walk surrendered through 7, and 100 pitches.

 

2-0 Royals going to the top of the 8th.

I agree. Let him get some time in AAA next season; his future seems bright.

Montas can either be a rushed closer to another frontline starter.

 

We'll see how patient they are...and what they really think of Webb.

 

 

Would like to see how much they push Olacio as well. The AFL placement is indicative.

 

It's also possible that Danish's stuff would play better as closer...another version of Keith Foulke with the angles/movement/deception and "average" fastball velocity.

Hawk saying the Sox should try to get Samardzija for next year. Does he know he's not a FA? Trading for him this offseason would be incredibly stupid, unless you know he'll sign an extension.

Royals had bases loaded, no outs and Perez hit into a line out off Al Al with Gordon picked off 3rd...no runs score.

 

Huge for the Tigers, IF IF they can figure out how to score on the Royals' pen.

not ready to dump Avi yet, considering his age and that most of us didn't think he'd be back until February.

 

He needs ABs. He'll probably play winter ball in Venezuela.

 

And this Erik Johnson fella ... is he related to Felipe Paulino?

Hound was good tonight. A's are scuffling, but he faced a lineup with 7 switch hitters/lefties, which has been his biggest obstacle to starting. Not saying he has the repertoire to start long-term, but I'd like to see him win a long-relief/spot starter role on next year's team. No reason for him to spend any time in AAA next year, imo - I think he'll be one of our 12 best coming out of ST.

 

We'll see.

First time this season the Sox put up six straight quality starts. 1-4 in those games so far....unfortunately the opposing starter also has quality starts in all six.

LOL, Robin has Leury run for Sanchez. Just in case we get to extra innings, don't want that spot getting any more damn hits. He's the perfect tanking manager.

Draft pick be damned, give me RBI 100, 101, and 102.

 

He isn't even close to hitting breaking pitches of late. For as great of a season as he's had, it's disappointing to see his power completely disappear after the ASB
