The new catcher has to wait a month to get in a game but of course the second Tony’s boyfriend feels a little bit better he’s back in the lineup. I’m surprised Tony didn’t take a leave of absence to be his nurse.

Adam

I hear ya, but this team can’t hit and sebys been swinging a hot bat. On a team where everybody can’t wait to sit, I can’t criticize a guy who wants to keep going hard

calcetinesblancos

I just like talking shit on Tony at this point, although anytime a new guy shows up from the minors I’m eager to see him in a game. Seby should be proud of himself for working on improving his game every time he got sent down. It’s clear he wasn’t spending the time sulking down there.

Adam

Haha very understandable. I too am eager to see Perez. I’d much rather watch some kids play hard the rest of the way

Adam

Trying to think positive, cleveland lost Bieber and McKenzie starts. Now face Castillo and Ray. If we can win 2 (huge IF I know), there is a legitimate chance we’re 2 out come Sunday.

Adam

Yep…Gavin Sheets is our best player now. Didn’t see that one coming

calcetinesblancos

Love seeing the young guys succeed.

How about the TV squad throwing shade at the offense with that graphic: Jake Burger is astoundingly 2nd on the team in HR at home.

As Cirensica

Welp…we might need another 3 run homer if Martin doesn’t put it together

Adam

It is amazing how poorly this team seems to be after the offense scores. It’s their equivalent to a man on third, no out. They just can’t wait to give it back

Weird August numbers from Martin at Charlotte:

11 innings, 17 hits, 7 walks, 17 Ks

Was thinking VV would get an outing based on his last appearance

We now need more than that

Adam

Carlos Perez not playing is starting to make sense. Doesn’t seem too solid defensively.

As Cirensica

Carlos Perez having a rough night

denman

The Diamondbacks are a bad team, right?; especially on the road, right?

As Cirensica

A bad team facing another bad team. Anything can happen.

Adam

Holy cow….did Perez catch in the minors or this his first time?

HallofFrank

I’ve missed most the game. What’s the deal? Passed balls? Poor framing?

As Cirensica

Passed ball, wild pitch and not moving to retrieve ball, missed a pop up, allowed stolen base, failed block…. the works.

Adam

Also the catchers interference that came around to score in the second. It was rough

calcetinesblancos

Maybe the rookie catcher/pitcher tandem on a Saturday wasn’t the best idea. But hey, I’m not a hall of famer.

Glad to see that Leury can still ground out weakly to the right side

As Cirensica

He’s back!!!

Nellie Fox

Just tuned in, watched fields throw 3 td passes. Looked at the pathetic Sox offense, guess I will watch the second half. Bright side, only have a few games left until this is over.

As Cirensica

I remember when we used to hit singles. Fun times.

denman

7th inning, you’re down 6 to 3 and the side is retired on 5 pitches????? Would that ever happen to the Astros?

As Cirensica

The Soft Part of the Schedule

As Cirensica

Moncada to the IL.
Last one turns off the light.

Adam

Game tying fly out at the track is fitting

Nellie Fox

Bears won, night has not been all bad.

Adam

Once again, we score…and our pitchers sprint to the mound to see how fast we can give it right back

Nellie Fox

Maybe Garcia will hit a 6 run homer in the bottom half inning? At least moncada cant strike out with a guy on second to end the game.

Adam

I am betting on a solo homer in the 9th. The blowout solo shot is a specialty. Just not from Leury

Foulkelore

If you don’t count the Kimbrel option swap for Pollock, keep in mind that their most expensive free agent acquisition of the past offseason, by AAV, is pitching mop up duty on August 27th … and doing poorly … and is hurt again.

chipporter

Why do people keep showing up to watch this hot garbage?

sinkerball

Boredom? Great Food and Beer?

As Cirensica

Bad: The White Sox lost
Good: The team managed by TLR lost

sinkerball

Bad: I am wasting time watching this depressing c*ap.
Good: Maybe TLR will not be back. Hahn I cant imagine gone.
