    Kopech fighting his control, and not getting any calls.

    7/19- Twins at Sox Gm 1, 4:10

    Really bad by Tim. Worst at bat from him in a long time.

    Javier Baez - just asking no rumor

    TA and Baez up the middle sounds good to me. His slumps are pretty rough, though - hopefully we catch a hot streak and ride it into the postseason. What does a competitive package look like for him?

    Does TLR need to light up the umpires more?

    Hallion missed the same pitches for the Tigers, so I doubt it would’ve made a difference.

    GT 7/3 White Sox @ Detroit Keuchel v. Skubal 3:10 PM CT

    So Keuchel is being a douche because LaRussa doesn't argue balls and strikes?

    GT 7/3 White Sox @ Detroit Keuchel v. Skubal 3:10 PM CT

    Starters are averaging 5.1 innings per game. 4 innings is terrible no matter how you slice it.

    GT 7/3 White Sox @ Detroit Keuchel v. Skubal 3:10 PM CT

    It was the 5th inning with 1 out. You can't just take starters out whenever they struggle. He needs to be able to pitch over mistakes, otherwise he's a reliever. Still - if you want to criticize LaRussa for that, fine. Makes a lot more sense than not yelling at umpires.

    These calls wouldn't matter if Keuchel wasn't absolutely awful against a mediocre team. 5 runs should be enough.

    Hinch didn't get thrown out of the game for that call so now Hallion is gonna pick on the Tigers. Terrible manager.

    "LaRussa is bad because he doesn't yell at umpires and that makes the umpiring worse against the Sox" is the best "I hate LaRussa and am going to make everything I can his fault" logic I've seen yet.

    The umpiring hasn't been good all year for us, but this time was the absolute most blatant missed calls and overreaction from an umpire I've seen in a long time. Just brutal.
