Default *Official* Thanks for the hits 10-1 postgamer

11 runs. I guess September really is over.

Where were these bats the last few weeks?

Hawk sounded just as disgusted with this win as he did with the losses in the previous weeks, I don't think he has taken this September well.

Pressure is gone, so the bats wake up.

Barring a Kansas City rally, it's over tonight.

Still, it is better to win than it is to lose. I won't be surprised if the Sox sweep these bums.

What a lousy ending to a promising season, but I'm always happy like a kid when the Sox win. They obviously were really tight as a drum when it really counted.

I've cried over this team more in the last 24 hours than I have for any other Sox team dating back to 1989. Yes, I cried over a baseball team. Cue making fun of ChiSoxGirl. I'm completely heartbroken. I can't even talk about the Sox with my students anymore when they bring them up because it hurts too much.

Scoring 11 runs tonight was like salt in an open wound. It took the Sox FOUR GAMES to score 11 runs prior to tonight. FOUR GAMES!!!! It's mind-boggling, maddening and heartbreaking all at once.

JB98 told me the other night that he thought the Sox would come out of their offensive slump when the pressure was gone. Well, the pressure came off with yesterday's loss and wouldn't you know, the bats came alive tonight.

Easy to hit when you're not squeezing the bat handle so tight it's turning to sawdust.

Still a win, nothing ever wrong with that, just far too late.

ChisoxGirl: I'd never make fun of a Sox fan who cared to that extent. Good for you that you give a damn to that degree. That's not teal or sarcastic. I appreciate your loyalty.

I'll take away from this one that we have another solid candidate for the rotation next season.

And I think Santiago would be ahead of Quintana. Well, at leas for me. Much better power stuff.

If only Kenny could work some Magic to get Danks off the books. Maybe eat 25% of that contract.

I have never been less excited by a White Sox grand slam than I was tonight.

I'd like very much for the Sox to be in a situation where Santiago and Quintana were competing for the fifth and final rotation spot in the spring. That would mean the Sox have some depth. But, some work is going to have to be done this offseason to create such a scenario.

I don't think Danks will be traded. Three years left on a deal, coming off shoulder surgery. Hard contract to move. Cross your fingers and pray he somehow becomes the guy he was three or four years ago.

I have never been less excited after a White Sox blowout. That's what happens when you stop doing everything that put you in first place most of the season.

I don't buy Santiago as a solid SP candidate as long as he walks too many people and that has been a problem all year. Quintana, too, gets in trouble with the walks, but that has mostly been a recent development from him. I think through August he was basically walking 1 batter per 9 IP. Neither has overpowering stuff, you can't live in this league as a soft tosser without command. I think Quintana's, when he's not being burned out, is better. But we shall see. Hopefully between the two of them, one can stick.

5.5 BB/9 IP for Santiago. 2.8 for Quintana. That's a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUGE difference.

4/5ths of the rotation is settled as I can see - Sale, Danks, Quintana, Santiago, right hander TBA
