Keuchel just isn’t good

Joliet Orange Sox

I demand better pitching that 2 runs allowed over 6 innings! DFA Keuchel! 😉

Foulkelore

Plus those 2 runs scored while Adam Engel was putting some tape together for Dancing With the Stars.

Lol Engel …just awful

As Cirensica

Welp…Luis Robert can’t return quick enough

jhomeslice

He has 2 hits including a homer and a stolen base tonight. He has to be getting pretty close. The stolen bases (his second) are a good sign his leg is good, hopefully.

Foulkelore

I think he’ll be back Monday, against the Twins, if he doesn’t have any setbacks.

Break up the Royals

As Cirensica

Anbreu getting on a nitting rampage in August

Timmy and Abreu coming out of their funks is key

As Cirensica

I meant hitting and Abreu. Typing on my phone is hard

jhomeslice

I think the whole team is on a nitting rampage! Geez… 1 run thru 6.

dwjm3

Engel is just brutal tonight

joewho112

What did he do now?

dwjm3

Had a chance to double a guy off second and airmailed Tim

I’ll grant him even if he made a better throw it would have been tough to get the guy

It sure seems like the Sox have been habitually shut down by starters with 5+ ERAs the past 2-3 weeks–many of them Royals. I can’t say it’s been fun to watch.

As Cirensica

Only 3 hits thru 5 innings. We forgot how to hit lately

Foulkelore

I know Zavala isn’t a good hitter, despite the crazy game he had. However, having him keep the bunt on with 2 strikes while already down 1 (you need at least 2 runs at some point tonight to win) was just not smart.

As Cirensica

A double play was avoided…some imbecile would say

As Cirensica

Can we stop hitting for double plays please?

IllinoisJones

Jose Abreu with a runner on first lately has me thinking I’m psychic.

Foulkelore

I didn’t see exit velocity yet, but it looked like Moncada hit that pretty hard. Bad luck.

dwjm3

With a bullpen this deep why are bringing Reynaldo Lopez in a tight game?

LaRussa is sleepwalking

jhomeslice

This is the Lopez that I fear. Got out of it with just one run but 30+ agonizing pitches. I think they are pretty delusional if they have hopes he can be useful in the postseason. Will get creamed in any big situation against a good team.

As Cirensica

We have this ceazy bullpen but we aren’t getting leads to protect

Shingos Cheeseburgers

Man I hope the Sox don’t run into the Royals in the ALDS

xubrent

Right now we look like we’ll have trouble handling anybody

Foulkelore

Vaughn looks a lot better in RF tonight. That’s a really good thing going forward (especially for NL parks).

Jason

Remember that May June run where we’d score all these runs from base hits, followed by hits followed by hits.

Good times. I feel like a 2019 Cubs fan the past few weeks.

dwjm3

I like Cesar a lot
