    Today's Crazy Play as I Saw it

    Pretty crazy that this play happened yesterday, because a similar situation happened in my softball game over the weekend. Man on second, one out. Line drive up the middle deflects off the pitcher and hits the runner. The ump immediately calls the runner out for being hit by a batted ball. The batter stops (thinking it’s a dead ball, because that’s what the ump incorrectly called), but then realizes the SS is picking up the ball, so he continues running and is out at first. Then the umps get together and put the runner back on second because you’re not out if the ball first deflects off a defender. So they got that part of the call right. However, I believe the batter should have been given first base. He stopped running at first because the umps screwed up and incorrectly called a dead ball. It made me think of an inadvertent whistle in football.

    How exactly did he give up his identity?

    7-23 GT: Sox @ Brewers (7:10pm)

    I’m mad that I missed it. Trying to find video of it, but I’m not seeing anything on Twitter yet.

    Actually, there is a deadline for him to return. (Yes, I am being an a** by picking apart the word choice.)

    7/22 Games

    I’m seeing Dalquist as giving up only 1ER (two unearned).

    White Sox considering Nelson Cruz

    Anderson SS Moncada 3B Cruz DH Abreu 1B Grandal C Eloy LF Robert CF Vaughn RF Escobar 2B Good lord. That’s some kind of lineup.

    Deadline Prediction Thread

    Just a guess? Or is this based on some insider chit chat?
  8. So Bummer/Lopez are replacing Fry/Foster.

    ASB trade priorities

    Thanks, BB. If we can grab one of them and if Bummer returns to form, I’ll be very confident in the bullpen come playoff time.

    ASB trade priorities

    Other than Kimbrel (who was mentioned in the post above), who are some bullpen arms we can go after?

    ESPN first half grades: Sox get a B+

    This is a very important point. They have crushed his expectations with a completely depleted team.

    White Sox power outage

    Good point. The Sox are 3rd in triples and 6th in doubles in all of MLB.
