Nobody I’d rather see up than Benintendi – said nobody except Scriffen.

mrridgman

Go figure.

roke1960

He actually said that??

mrridgman

Paraphrasing yesterday.

Sox1955

As bad as we are, we are also the victim of a lot of bad ball and strike calls thus far this year in key spots. Of course, the two may go hand in hand.

Sox1955

And the umps don’t have anything to do with the blasts the Yankees are rocking us with so far

StockroomSnail

If they called half foul they’d still lose.

Foulkelore

Sign that kid to play LF.

As Cirensica

Tuning in at the moment Mendick makes an error and a kid fan making a better catch than Benintendi

Foulkelore

We don’t deserve Pham, but I’ll enjoy watching him while he’s here.

Jeffrey

At least Grifol has figured out that he should bat lead off.

Foulkelore

The infield defense has been awful so far with three bad throws: 1 each by Mendick, Vaughn, and DeJong.

As Cirensica

Keller should be DFAed after this game, he is really bad. No swing and a miss stuff.

roke1960

Correction- Keller should never have been signed.

MattyV415

I’ll extend that sentiment to Clevinger.

shumway

He should retire. Pure batting practice machine. Hitters salivating.

StockroomSnail

The white sox are the last stop before a dirt nap.

RayHerbert

after 2 starts? and 3 other appearances? I’m not a Keller fan, but at this point he should get a fair chance

Right Size Wrong Shape

I don’t like him. No chances.

As Cirensica

Called it

roke1960

Brad Keller vs the Yankees- the only surprise is the Yankees only have 4 runs thru 2 innings.

Foulkelore

BP for the Yankees today

StockroomSnail

Stanton looks like he’s swinging a scythe.

As Cirensica

Why is Keller still pitching?

GrinnellSteve

I would have made him throw all 8. Wear it. Save the bullpen. Cut him before he gets off the field after the 8th.

StockroomSnail

Probably for the pay check

StockroomSnail

7 straight Ks, damn

StockroomSnail

14 total, he’s cooking.

As Cirensica

Well, this stretch against good teams is going swimmingly. It’s like a check up that reminds us how truly bad this team is when compare with teams that truly spend money.

JazznFunk

Wow. Just checked gameday and here. 16Ks in 8 innings. Facing good teams as well as a taste of what a post-selloff looks like

upnorthsox

No the post selloff would be way worse.

As Cirensica

That Benintendi’s catch…whaaaat? Where was this Benintendi before?

Adam

When Pham is traded I think he’s going to give the Jack Parkman quote from Major League 2. “I’m the only winner on this team. The rest are losers…either by choice, or by birth”

asinwreck

Andrew Vaughn looks like someone who’d best continue his career on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.

StockroomSnail

That Viciedo stare

As Cirensica

I don’t know man, I think Viciedo is a better player than Vaughn.

ForsterFTOG

Statistically, they’re almost identical.

StockroomSnail

He’s a better defender and similar hitter, I suppose

Foulkelore

Soto should buy Keller and Soroka nice watches for today’s contributions towards the total amount of his next contract.

ForsterFTOG

I wonder how often a team has 2 pitchers throw 80+ pitches in the same game.

RayHerbert

Notwithstanding 4 walks, Soroka looked good

StockroomSnail

I thought he walked a tightrope and got away with it.

StockroomSnail

Actually, the strikeouts were pretty good and higher velocity too, I was harsh and more listening than watching.

RayHerbert

sounds a little like Kopech

StockroomSnail

We love our tight wire acts.
