After 6 innings, Adam Frazier 2 runs scored with a home run. White Sox- ZERO


Yaz! See, we just needed the First Pitch post for the offense to officially get started.


Wow! Great move by Tony.


I’m sure I am biased because I loved Frank as a player, but man do I like him in the booth.

His energy and excitement! How awesome!


Danny Mendick- gold glover and Silver Slugger.


Yeah, they gave an error to Moncada, and it wasn’t a good throw, but I really thought Mendick should have had that. Maybe I didn’t see a great angle of it.


It hit him in the glove and he stretched with the wrong leg. But he’s our everyday 2nd baseman.


A legit big league second baseman makes that catch. Mendick is outclassed at this level.


A little league 2B knows you don’t stretch that way on a throw up the line.

And Crochet tumbles furthers down the depth chart

10 pitches to turn a lead into a 2 run deficit!

That makes six straight batters he’s failed to retire over 2 appearances. Blech.


Yeah, maybe they should go back to letting him throw 102 mph.


I really hope he isn’t hurt because we need him in the worst way

Letting Giolito bat in the 6th with 90+ pitches was a vote of no confidence in the bullpen. And it was right.
