I loathe White Sox situational hitting.

Quintana had a great game.

Thornton was sharp.

Rios and Gillaspie continue to hit the ball well.

I'm still pissed that Ramirez couldn't execute that ****ing bunt. Like, I'm steamed. Why in the hell Ventura would have him bunt when it's obvious that he doesn't know what the **** he's doing up there when it comes to a bunting situation is beyond me.

What a crappy way to waste the best (or second-best) pitching performance of the season so far.

Robin needs to have Alexei out at 9 am tomorrow for bunting practice.

To hell with that. Just don't ask him to bunt. Part of being a manager is knowing what your players can and can't do. It's ****ing obvious to any Sox fan that this man can't bunt for a sacrifice, so why ask him to do something that he can't do?

It boggles my goddamned mind!

Good thing for me I'm starting to get dis-interested on this team very quickly. Don't need another tease. Suck, then suck early.

That was not good. We look like a team that plays poorly as a team, despite doing some parts (like pitching) well.
runner on 2nd no outs late in the game, and we execute like clowns.

This. I've about given up already...at least for awhile. I'm going to wait for the Hawks to finish a playoff run, then come back and see how they're doing. But until that point I'm not watching or going to another ****ing game. This crap has been going on far too long for me to be patient with.

Totally agree. As much as I love baseball, I haven't been really sold on a Sox season since early 2009. Of course, I learned my lesson quickly there.

It sucks to not enjoy baseball. I just can't get excited about this .500 at best on paper team.

But hey, anything can happen. That really should be the annual Sox slogan. That's how they run things.

I'll take a team of home run/low awareness hitters over an athletic team any day.
Too tired for teal.

Whatever. Go Sox.

opening day was great, but it looks like a long year unless we can have an 8 game winning streak soon! Scoring runs looks like a problem.

Well this is a damned depressing way to start the weekend!

Gawd, I hate Nick Swisher!

Great effort by Quintana wasted. Alexei has always seemed utterly unable to bunt when it matters, which is infuriating. Get 'em tomorrow.
