Man, wasn't that an amazing bomb? Where'd they get this Kang guy. Wish the Sox had him.

 

 

Signed as a FA out of South Korea, not a very expensive contract.

 

It would have been a perfect move for the White Sox to sign him for 3B/SS, but they preferred Gillaspie/Beckham/Bonifacio.

 

There sure were a lot of doubters who felt Kang wouldn't be able to hold his own offensively in the big leagues, and he's put himself into the Top 3-5 of the NL Rookie of the Year consideration.

Yep, he would've been great. There may be another Korean 3B coming over, possibly - can't remember the name - hope we're scouting them.

Suddenly the Sox and Rays have a big series against each other next week.

 

Should be:

 

Odorizzi vs Quintana

Archer vs Sale

Ramirez vs Rodon

I didn't know his first name. Couldn't help the MK reference.

Cool. Perkins not a lockdown reliever these days.

 

 

Hitters 9 for their last 20 against him.

 

 

Don't forget Twins/Pirates early game tmrw, Erwin Santana and Liriano against his former team.

 

And just announced, Thursday night will be JA Happ (Mariners) against Phil Hughes, the last game before trade deadline.

Thanks! Having to go to MLB.com wild card standings has already gotten annoying.

Rays up on Tigers 1-0, bottom 6

 

Twins no score after 1

We want the Tigers to win this one, right?

I think so. First of all, the Tigers are behind the Rays in the standings. Secondly, the Sox get more shots at the Tigers to take them down themselves.

The way I look at is, we want anybody above us in the standings to lose. Don't worry about anyone behind us right now.

 

2-1 DET in the 7th
