    5/18 White Sox @ Twins 6:40 PM

    Alternating RH and LH hitters in the line-up can aggravated some pitchers. No matter what Tony does, he will never be given credit. However, once the team goes into an inevitable slump/ losing streak it will all be blamed on him. I have felt like that at times...no credit for anything but oh boy, should I make a mistake..

    5/18 White Sox @ Twins 6:40 PM

    If Lamb doesn't start hitting and Burger keeps raking, do you think the Sox would DFA Lamb and bring up Jake? I was just imagining an outfield of Burger, Hamilton and Vaughn...and how crazy that would be. Tony likes to experiment with the players/line-ups and would probably try it.
  3. I think we will be set in the outfield without acquiring any outfielders after this season Robert, Eloy and Engel returning plus Cespy, Colas, and Vaughn who is even showing he could play RF.
  4. The Twins are toast. So are Hinch the Cheat's Tigers. I want to see the Sox beat some of the better teams now, starting with the Yankees.

    I never said it was a clear picture. I said I am not writing KC and Cleveland off in the middle of May. I have seen a lot of baseball this season and in years past on which to base that opinion.

    I watched their games with the Sox and am not writing KC or Cleveland off in the middle of May.

    The ump looked down on it from a few feet away and saw air between the catcher's mitt and Abreu. He had a better angle to make the call than the cameras could provide. I am still worried about Cleveland and KC. They both look better than I thought they were. You are right though, if you continue beating them even this early in the season , that makes a Division win more likely.

    If you look at his short sleeve on the runners shirt you could see it flapped when Collins tagged him. He was out.
  10. The worst criticism a sports media personality can levy against a pro athlete is that he isn't trying. Stone just did that. I am tired of Stone and Bennetti for a variety of reasons, this being the latest, but I don't want to get into that, beyond responding to this outrageous comment. Perhaps Stone needs to take off another week to visit his dogs, or perhaps, he should consider retirement.

    The TLR Manager Thread

    Brother Tony. I watched every game in the Twins series and I am certain that some ("inexcusable"?) decisions that LaRussa made could be questioned and tallied on some score card, but to what end? The Sox swept the series, I am ecstatic, and I don't want to hear constant whining about LaRussa. It is beginning to look petty and distracts from discussing the main topics here. As a mod, you should be trying to keep the flow of the discussion and encouraging fan dialogue, , not accusing posters of trolling. Listen, if LaRussa deserves to be fired, the Chicago sports media will be all over that. However, he is no where near that threshold right now. It's just not an issue at this time. Maybe save your bullets as the saying goes, and attack him if and when it looks like he deserves to go.

    I personally want to see a lot of HR and good hitting from both corner outfielders. You can always substitute for defense in late innings if you have the lead.

    Hamilton had an incredible series. Mercedes keeps getting clutch hits. Starting pitching remains solid.
