Same crowd as last time.

I wonder if the White Sox are gonna win another game this year

Since they are now out of playoff contention, a complete collapse like this might cause Jerry to make big changes. Doubtful, but it can’t hurt. I would like to see a season ending 15-game losing streak. That might be the best thing for the long-term success of this franchise.

Pass the hopium pipe please, I’d like some of that.

I was at Optimism Brewery in Seattle during the Sox trip there and was like…. you all missed it, where’s the Hoptimism? they thought I was purple. but yes, more hopium please!

At this point, it shouldn’t take a 15-game losing streak for Jerry and everyone connected with the White Sox front office to realize that big changes need to be made.
I remain impressed by the talent of this core and could live with giving Hahn one more year to fix things. But, Hahn needs to own up to the problems confronting this team; problems he’s minimized and punted on over the past two off-seasons.

I, um, do NOT want Hahn back for another year

I hear you. I wouldn’t cry at having a new GM. I guess I’m of the opinion that so much needs to change regarding the coaching staff and roster make-up that also bringing in a new GM, who would have to learn how to navigate his or her way through this organization, might not be the best way to improve this team for the 2023 season. One hopes Hahn has learned something from his mistakes.

Well, now we know they suck no matter who the manager is. Like Homer Simpson said, “They’re the suckiest sucks that have ever sucked.” Well, something like that.

This team is dead. Holy shit. I have never seen a 190M payroll being so useless. They don’t even have pride. Going thru the motions.

funkerdan

have…… you seen the Angels?

As Cirensica

160M payroll

As Cirensica

193M …stand corrected.

funkerdan

A position player can pitch and we won’t score.

Joliet Orange Sox

I was really impressed by just how hard Duran threw tonight. 7 pitches at 102.7 mph or faster with the one pitch to Andrus at 103.8 mph. Just wow. On the last pitch of the game, Duran threw it at 102.9 mph and Moncada hit it with an exit velocity of 102.4 mph. That’s a huge ∆p for the ball!

We had 2 hits and 2 players on the twinkies went hitless. There’s a reverse symmetry to that and it doesn’t feel good.
