Thought we'd pull this one out.

Watching this team is like watching a Nascar race, just waiting for the next wreck

I thought we had a shot. I was excited to be able to get up to more games this summer, but it's feeling like I'll have some disappointing rides home if we continue to play this caliber of ball.

Once again, the Sox pitcher goes 110+ pitches, while the opposition guy, who pitches the same number of innings and gives up the same number of hits, pitches 20+% fewer pitches.
The Sox simply refuse to work counts. This dubious approach to hitting has got to be organizational.

And if Ventura keeps doing this to young pitchers, he needs to go.

If the pitchers can't handle that workload then they don't belong on the roster. Or they need to be more efficient. But its damned if you do, damned if you don't. If Robin pulls them earlier then he's taxing the bullpen.

He's talking about our hitters, and how they don't ever make pitchers work. Our starters get taxed by opposing hitters, while the guys pitching against us get quick inning after quick inning.

Another winning streak snuffed out at one.

SMO


Edit: Yes, I did see Tank trotting toward the dugout when he caught out #2.
And yes, it did look to me too that Bacon was WAAAAY late on that swinging strike 3 in the 9th.

Oops. Didn't catch that. Makes sense.

And on another note 2 more horrendous baserunning plays. In the same innings. They were talking about how Gardy fines his players every time they make a mental mistake, don't hustle, ect. Robin should start doing the same. Should have been doing it back on April 1st.

Didn't see tonight's game, but I have noticed this all season. The Sox go up and down in a fast manner. It is another symptom of this bad offense. At least they have scored 13 runs in the last three games. That is a lot for the White Sox.

Right now when watching the Sox, the only thing I find remotely interesting is to try to guess which particular facet of their game will contribute to the loss. Will it be the lack of hitting? Baserunning mistakes? Errors? Bullpen implosion? Inquiring minds want to know.

Its coming to the point where I wish the season was over. I haven't felt this sense of hopelessness since the 2007 season. The only thing keeping me going is I'm wondering what Hahn is going to do to make this team better. I just wish he would do something/anything.

I've never seen a major leaguer swing later on a pitch than Beckham when he struck out in the 9th. The ball was in the catcher's mitt when he started the swing.

That's a bad sign. He's been doing well since he came back from his injury, but his problems have been a hitch in his swing, and doing what you described. I hope it was just one bad at bat.
