WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps


October 2 Vs. Kittens

Sox Project Update:
Everything was on Sale
For one night it wasn't about the rebuild.

Short Take: Chris Sale! 'Nuff said...

"Toasters, coffee pots, whiffle bats, EVERY THING MUST GO! Only 107 days until Chris-tmas and EVERYTHING IS ON Chris-SALE!" What's that? There's less than 107 days until Christmas you say? Oh well, we can have our own Black Friday celebration because Chris Sale broke the 107-year-old White Sox team single season strikeout record tonight. Not that anyone in the news or at WSI was paying attention. You see the Sox tried to pull a fast one and use the impending good news and the fact it was Friday to dump the news that Robin Ventura would be returning as manager in 2016. Unfortunately their plans didn't work so well. The media was hammering Rick Hahn who was sent out to face the music and WSI didn't even start a game thread or post game thread as the angst, anger and frustration of the last several years boiled over. That definitely put a different feeling on the whole Black Friday concept, but the game must go on and indeed it did as the Sox went on to win 2-1.

So... Ho... hum... Chris Sale did what he does so smoothly and efficiently if you blinked you might have missed it. The record was tied after one on two swinging strikeouts and then after his lone hiccup - a solo-homer to start the second, Chris got Catcher James McCann to stare at strike three and the record was already toast. Chris went on to fan four more guys including McCann again in the fourth though this time James managed to take the bat off his shoulder. Not that it did him any more good while moving than it did sitting still. Sale ended up going seven+ innings yielding five hits and one walk. For the game he had seven strikeouts to finish with 274 on the season and beat the old record held by "Big" Ed Walsh by five. He left with no one out in the eighth and men on first and second after giving up a lead-off double and then drilling the next guy. Fortunately Matt Albers came on and pitched out of the jam he inherited to preserve Chris' lead and then David Robertson came in and blanked the Kittens in the ninth with a pair of strikeouts of his own followed by a routine fly to center to end the game.

Offensively the Sox didn't manage to do much either tonight. They matched the Kittens output exactly with five total hits and one walk. We did have two guys hit by pitches while the Kittens only had one. The difference being one of ours came around to score what would end up being the winning run. In the third Sanchez led off with a single then Saladino got drilled. Eaton came up and promptly smoked a pitch to deep center that scored both runners. Unfortunately Adam was thrown out at third for the FIRST OUT?!?!?!? of the inning. Oh well, in the end it didn't matter because it was Black Friday and not only do good guys wear black, but we've got the best Sale in the majors and tonight that was enough.

So the Sox won and Sale broke the strikeout record and yes, unfortunately Robin still has a job next year though the Sox did fire Mark Parent the bench coach, whatever that's worth. This is my final recap of the 2015 season. Happy to go out on a winning note and to get the chance to memorialize a 107-year-old record being broken. Hope you enjoyed reading. Can't say it's been the funnest season I've written for, but hopefully the Sox will find a way to get back on track in 2016. With Chris Sale on our side, there's always hope...

 Chris Sale is one piece they don't need to fix.
