Wow…double stealing! White Sox doing baseball things perfectly.

Adam

Jesus. Turn on my first game in weeks. First thing I see is Eloy going at maybe 25% on a groundball to deep short. Maybe I’ll check back after the deadline

Foulkelore

I think his injury is still bothering him. He looked like he was hobbling the other night when running to 1st too.

funkerdan

yeah, this.

Adam

I feel like Lou Brown in Major League 2. All this team does good is make excuses

As Cirensica

He looks like that about 75% of the time so I am unsure if that’s normal or something is bothering him.

Al Kohallik

Don’t worry Sox have a Press Release when he’s at 100%

funkerdan

I think he’s still nursing his leg and knowing the sox, he’s lucky to be at 25%

As Cirensica

It was nice while it lasted. This team is just astoundingly bad.

Benintendi still fears the wall.

As Cirensica

Come on, baby (don’t fear the wall)
Baby, take my hand (don’t fear the wall)
We’ll be able to fly (don’t fear the wall)

Foulkelore

Robert doesn’t fear the wall
Nor did Rowand, Engel, or Dewayne Wise
You could be like they are
Come on, baby (don’t fear the wall)

ForsterFTOG

“maw cowbell”

Al Kohallik

Another misspent childhood of the 70’s

Foulkelore

Good hustle by Robert there. No, that wasn’t sacrasm. No, that wasn’t either.

Burning the DH so you could pinch run for a guy who’s not that slow and get Gavin Sheets an at-bat is… a choice.

funkerdan

doubt it matters at this point.

MattyV415

It probably won’t decide the game, but it’s part of the larger pattern of Grifol mismanaging substitutions late in games.

funkerdan

no argument. I’d play Benintendi at 2nd and not burn the DH and just ‘see’ what happens. we can do the reverse by putting Sheets in LF, so why not?

As Cirensica

I will laugh if the game is on the line with the pitcher hitting for himself.

Steve

I’m really hoping the short bench causes Aaron Bummer to come up to bat with bases loaded, two outs, and a 3-3 tie.

I bet he does better than most of our hitters.

As Cirensica

This level of gross negligence has to be a fireable on the spot offense.
