Ok…let’s do this again

As Cirensica

Alright….good start

Foulkelore

I like the players who the Twins acquired at the deadline: Lopez last night, Mahle today.

Foulkelore

Eloy, you can walk as slowly around the bases as you’d like after that one!

Adam

He crushed that!!!

As Cirensica

I belive the White Sox have homered in every single game managed by Cairo

As Cirensica

I have never seen the White Sox hitting this many homers in a week this whole year.

a-t

God I love Eloy’s easy power. Less than a dozen guys around can go deep 425 opposite field like that

a-t

Mahle’s hurt again too? Gray and Mahle both going down is gonna have the Twins in free fall.

Adam

The guards also lost 2/5 of the rotation. And their replacements look terrible

As Cirensica

They have scored 1 run in the last 3+ games. ONE run. Not a typo.

Adam

And it was unearned too. They have the lowest hard hit rate in baseball. They are like the metrodome twins teams. Would love to see the luck even out

Adam

Romy!!!!

Foulkelore

Hit and run foul, hit and run foul, screw it, three run homer.

HallofFrank

what is happening

Foulkelore

All of the things

a-t

Don’t stop now, boys, pile it on. Might as well tire out the Minny bullpen a little to set up a sweep tomorrow.

As Cirensica

not a bad strategy

asinwreck

The lineup appears to have a pulse this weekend.

Foulkelore

Call your friends, call your neighbors, call your sons, call your daughters, call that ex you sometimes still get together with but don’t normally talk to, call that acquaintance you don’t really like but still have his number in your phone …

Adam

Lol I thought this thread had gone cold as we were all refusing to acknowledge what may or may not be happening as if we were on the bench live

Root Cause

Great to see Romy get his first homer.
This has been one of the best weeks to watch this year.

Pollock and Engel know the deal. Get this inning over and get Dylan back out there

funkerdan

Am I watching the same team from a few weeks ago? wow we look good.

As Cirensica

This is ridiculous. Somebody with a mercy strike out so we can get Cease

As Cirensica

Thank you Haseley

Adam

Ask and ye shall receive.

Although it was hasely. I think he intended to hit but let’s go anyway

I’m not sure I like an opposing manager using a position player as a pitcher during a no hitter. It feels a bit bush league.

Greg

1) Andrus just received a strange text from an Arizona area code saying something about “unwritten rules”
2) Changing position players with 2 outs? Just get the inning over with, Twinkies.

calcetinesblancos

Bush league horseshit from Baldelli. Cairo should go take a few swings at him.

Foulkelore

Arraez is going to be the tough one. C’mon, Dylan.

As Cirensica

The no nitter would have cemented Cease Cy Young case

Foulkelore

Damn, so close. He threw a bad pitch, and a good hitter hurt it.

ecivokrak

Ugh, AJ P. was right – needed to pitch around Arraez.

As Cirensica

Cairo still invictus in games he prepared the lineup

asinwreck

Still the best game played in Bridgeport this year. Sox dominated on the mound and in the batter’s box. Signs of life for the first weekend in a long time.

As Cirensica

a-t

As disappointing as a 13-0 CGSO win over a division rival in a tight race at home can be.

I do wonder if that one goddamn hit will cost Dylan the Cy Young, though

Root Cause

Season isn’t over and Verlander is roughed up. Stay healthy Cease and bring home the gold.

roke1960

He’ll just have to no-hit Cleveland.

As Cirensica

The way they’re hitting, I might bet on it

roke1960

Where would this team be if they didn’t have the worst manager in recent history for the first 129 games? And the sad thing is that next year we are wasting $13M on two of his favorites, Leury and Kelly, who have no value to the team.
