9/23 Game Thread Detroit Tigers @ Chicago White Sox 7:10 PM


Recommended Posts

Somehow, Abreu will likely avoid leading the American League in Grounded into Double Plays for a fourth consecutive season. Even with Jose's 18th and latest, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is six ahead of him with two weeks left in the season.

Jose needs six to tie and seven to pass Harold Baines for third on the all time White Sox GIDP list.

  1. 271 Paul Konerko (9,258 PA - 3rd)
  2. 190 Frank Thomas (8,603 PA - 4th)
  3. 172 Harold Baines (6,797 PA - 6th)
  4. 166 Jose Abreu (5,470 PA - beyond 10th place Minnie Minoso 5,917)

I stand corrected. Still want him benched for 2023 purposes.

Why? He’s like 5 PA away from the extra million. There’s no chance he doesn’t reach that unless he gets injured tonight.

They are playing for nothing. Let Haseley / Payton play. Should have been done at the trade deadline (he was still at $10M) once Jerry pulled the plug on the deadline and season.

The way the Sox are run, he'll play out the string and lock in an extra $2M.

It’s truly amazing how bad their defense has been. 

And how slow our runners are.  Almost impossible to get an infield hit, avoid a double play, go from 1st to 3 rd on a base hit, getting to catchable balls in the outfield, executing a hit and run, etc.  and comparing to the Guardians we are a bad joke.

Yoan’s lost his speed, bad speed and eye at the plate.  It’s one of the stranger things I’ve witnessed in a while.

Noticed Buxton was down to 29.1, that's understandable with all the lingering injuries, but never seen the so called top ranked prospect in baseball Moncada flame out like this since maybe Brien Taylor or Matt Bush.
