Did the announcer say that last fly out was “deep to shallow left”?

Leury is just killing us

Foulkelore

I, for one, appreciate his effort out of the break to remind the front office that an upgrade for 2B would be a good idea.

dwjm3

Haha ????

jhomeslice

Speaking of which, why is he hitting 5th, with the lowest slugging pct in the entire lineup?

Garcia needs to get it together. He has played really poorly the last two days. Once again, a costly mental error there.

ImmortalTimeTravelMan

62 IQ play from Leury…

watching a live game for the first time in awhile. I love how the place is rocking!! great crowd. They brought back “na na hey hey goodbye”. Inflatable trash can was hilarious. This is what I love about Sox baseball. Reminds me of 1977 and 1983. Man this is a pleasure to watch. And AJ is excellent in the booth.

I agree. The 1977 Sox were so fun to watch. Their defense was atrocious, but man could they hit!!

asinwreck

This team’s rotation is a bit stronger, too.

roke1960

Yeah, they couldn’t pitch either. But they were never out of any game. Old Comiskey was a lot of fun to be at back then!

asinwreck

Tonight’s HR barrage certainly reflects both 77 and 83! This would be a great game to have Nancy Faust back at the organ.

ParisSox

Yes, this!! She was the best.

And actual spin wheels on the scoreboard rather than digitized versions.

roke1960

How is it possible that the Sox are beating the GREAT Houston Astros 9-0????

ImmortalTimeTravelMan

Keep drinking the Koolaid Buddy

roke1960

Why are you even a fan? They’re winning 9-0 and you make a negative comment. That’s sad.

roke1960

They winning 9-0 and your two comments are “low IQ play by Leury” and “keep drinking the kool-aid.” Has anything good happened today?

ImmortalTimeTravelMan

They’re winning 9-0 and you make a sarcastic comment that’s pretty easy to assume is directed at me. That also seems pretty sad.

Foulkelore

Burger hit the hell out of that one!

ParisSox

Burger such a great story! How could AJ and the other guy not tell his story?? Probably weren’t prepped for it. Anyways, THIS IS SUCH A GREAT GAME!!

Foulkelore

115.2 mph exit velocity!

Foulkelore

It’s a good problem to have that Sheets and Burger have become assets, but I don’t envy the likely choice of having to give away at least one of them to add short-term assets.

roke1960

Hey immortaltimetravelman, there seem to be a whole lot of people drinking the kool-aid on here. We need some of your good old-fashioned negativity to knock some sense into all of us!!

Boy, if Gio can return to last year’s form, that would be something. He really had a great game. They really need to figure something out for 2nd base, though
