Default ***Official*** Nat Tonight 4-9 Postgame Thread

I've been here long enough, I can start one post game thread. Not enough lumber for the Sox tonight.

BTW, any of us who think that Hawks is too much of a homer need to endure the clowns that do the Nats home broadcast.

Listening to F.P Santangelo is like having John Gruden broadcast your games. It was raining superlatives.

If the bullpen doesn't implode we win, simple as that. It is nice to see a little offense though. Gives me hope for at least one of the next 2 games.

Left too many men on base, and Viciedo is starting to remind me of Juan Uribe and his stupid hacks.

Pitching wasn't sharp tonight. Peavy had his moments but gave up to many home runs. Bullpen allowed a few more runs otherwise the Sox could possibly have come back to win this one.

Thornton not sharp again tonight in my opinion.

1-10 with RISP....continues to be an issue.

Try again tomorrow.

Left Jake in about 3 batters too long. I know he's a competitor, but I pull him after the Werth HR.

LaRoche comes into the game hitless and leaves with 2 HR's.

We only left 6 on base (team-wise).

Hopefully Beckham isn't out too long.

expectations are low, but I am happy that the White Sox are playing decent baseball to start.

Five of the first seven games the Sox have played have been decided by one run. I assume that pace won't continue for much longer.

And the two highest scoring games they've had this year (seven runs), they lost both. Baseball is a funny game sometimes.

Hate losing, but I do like the way the offense doesn't quit.

Alex Rios. I guess he decided to be good two year in a row!

It couldn't have happened at a worse time too. The injury is not DL worthy so the Sox will play a man short for the next two NL games where you need your bench a lot more. whitesox.com is reporting that it is a slight nerve irritation for Gordon and he is day to day. Ventura said he will definitely be out of the lineup tomorrow. The beat writers are twittering that it will likely be Conor Gillaspie at 3B and Jeff Keppinger at 2B tomorrow.

I was at this game. The White Sox offense was there too. White Sox pitching didn't show up, though, simple as that.

We were just barely denied a chance to see how that crowd would react to Dunn coming to the plate as the go-ahead run.

What happened to Beckham? I went to get some Dippin Dots and I came back to see Sanchez in the lineup.

I would have definitely pulled him after the Zimmerman AB. Robin has used the bullpen a lot lately and I have to think he was trying to coax another inning or two out of Jake since this is Game 1 of a 10 game trip. However, Jake was leaving a lot of pitches up and his velocity dipped to 89mph that inning. I think those first couple innings really gassed Peavy early. Also, I realize this is a bit of arm chair managing but I thought when the game was 6-2, that would have been a perfect time to turn to Hector Santiago to gobble up some innings and save the bullpen.

Or Peavy doesn't give up 6 runs, but whatever.

Peavy's implosion was more to blame tonight than the bullpen's. This loss was similar to the first loss of the season when Floyd continued to give up runs after the Royals got the lead -- and similar to the second loss of the season when Jones continued giving up runs after the Mariners went ahead. The difference in tonight's could-have-won Whtie Sox loss, though, is that for the first time in 2013 tonight the Sox lost a game in which they had once led.

Anytime you lose a game 8-7, you can feel you should have won. Generally, the higher the score in a one-run loss, the more keys to the loss you can find. Viciedo striking out in the first was huge, but at least Gonzalez balked in a run. Not scoring a leadoff double, hurt. Leaving Peavy in to face the Nats order a third time felt like it would cost the game, but suggesting Peavy should have come out of the game before giving up two two-run homers would be second-guessing. Veal's pickoff attempt hurt. Everything the bullpen gave up hurt, which is where this discussion started. But the Nationals' bullpen gave up more runs. The difference was the hole Peavy dug when he couldn't do anything the third time through the order.

The Nationals are one of several National League teams that are probably at least as good as any team in the American League. But every time it looked like the Nats had put the Sox away, the Sox came back. In the end, it was just another tough loss.

Never gets old listening to Hawk emote about Denard Span though.
