I hope José pitches the ninth

Shingos Cheeseburgers

I appreciate the Sox leaving the fans with absolutely no doubt about where there are as a franchise going into the offseason.

billyok

I’m here for the burial.

Just when you thought Martin might crack the rotation or have significant trade value, reality slaps you in the face.

Shingos Cheeseburgers

It’s a beautiful gesture that the Sox are determined to lose this game 79-0 in honor of José

Foulkelore

Would Jose be able to go out to make a pitching change, or does that have to be a member of the coaching staff?

upnorthsox

He is going to make all the pitching changes today.

upnorthsox

Doh! Didn’t read you comment correctly.

It wouldn’t be 2022 without an injury and an embarrassing loss

GrinnellSteve

So, did I miss anything?

BillyKochFanClub

We were mired in mediocrity and now we’re 81-81.

2022 is Rick’s masterpiece.

Foulkelore

Or, three straight non-losing seasons on the old resume.

Seats at the table? ✅✅✅

I popped up the score and made a mad dash here, knowing that this wouldn’t go quietly at 10-0. HAHAHAHA Sox picked a fine time for appropriateness.

Assuming leads stay as they are today, it will have taken 93 wins for the Sox to have won the Central this year. That is significantly more that most would have predicted this year and the same amount of wins as last year when the Sox coasted to the division win. We’ll also tie the Giants at 81-81 and should finish 16th in draft order.

Foulkelore

A 10-0 score is perfect. If you only look at part of the picture, like Rick and company did when they built this team, it’s still optimistically 0-0.

Who could possibly believe that the 2022 Chicago White Sox would finish at 81-81?

upnorthsox

He missed 80-80

asinwreck

That tweet was from August. Here’s tonight’s update.

upnorthsox

Aah cool, I was a bit disappointed we’d missed one in the 70s.

Twins pitcher going to get the coveted save while coming in up by 10

Foulkelore

Welp, that’s it for the games. I certainly hope this is an interesting offseason that takes things in the right direction.

Shingos Cheeseburgers

Fun season everyone. See you all back here March 30th for a 10-1 loss to Houston.

The first thing that needs to happen- Michael Reinsdorf goes up to Jerry and says, “Dad, let me do with the Sox what I did with the Bulls.” If Jerry allowed a Chicago legend like John Paxson to be fired, he will allow Rick and Kenny to be fired. That’s my hope. Otherwise, it’s going to be another frustrating offseason.

chipporter

I like that. I wish it were closer to reality than I’m led to believe, but I like that.

I’ve really enjoyed the good discussions we’ve had here this season. Jim’s writing has made this season bearable. Thanks, Jim!! We’re all passionate about the Sox and want them to succeed. It’s been great to have this outlet to share our thoughts/frustrations this year. Thanks to all of you for the great discussions!!
