Default *Official* No Homers against the Duff Man 7/14 Postgame Thread

Hopefully Moncada is OK. Give him the day off tomorrow and let him rest straight through the All Star Break.

On the day they honor the 1993 club, which was a damn good one...the Sox lay a corpse-ball egg.

Great timing guys!

Against the Royals no less.

I love that 93 team. Grew up watching them get better and better and then rise up and win the division. Sucks that 94 happened.

Unfortunately Lopez was one pitch away from getting out of the 8th with only 3 runs. Regardless, congrats on the kid Reynaldo.

I need to create a new hashtag for days like today, #BadBallparkExperience.

One of the most boring games I've attended in years, in addition to a pregame parking fiasco that pissed me off.

It's all so predictable. I think in the second inning I said to tebman, "We're getting shut out today."

Yep.

Was the parking fiasco the result of something done by employees? At this point, I think the displeasure that fans feel with the whole parking experience is falling on deaf ears.

In the 9th, Engel was lifted for a pinch hitter: Tilson. I thought it fitting.
time to play the big sticks, such as they are.

Duffy seems to own the White Sox. So do a number of other middle-of-the-road hurlers. This is what happens when you're fielding a AAAA team.

Whenever attending a game, we'd always hit Schaller's Pump on Halsted for a quick, economical meal; leave the vehicle there at no charge and walk east to the park. After the game we'd walk back or Uber it back. Since Schaller's is no longer open we've been forced to find other parking arrangements.

Heading into the All-Star break 30 games under .500. I have to wonder when this rebuild bottoms out before taking a positive upturn.

Ehhh ... roads blocked that normally are not blocked, parking lot gates closed that normally are not closed -- at 12:30 p.m. for a scheduled 1:10 start. Why the **** isn't Lot C open 40 minutes before first pitch? Well, actually it was open on one side, but closed on two others.

I don't know who is to blame, and I don't care. These *******s change the policies on a whim, and they don't understand that they have no right to yell at me -- the paying customer.

It really isn't worth arguing about anymore. The Sox just suck at everything.

This isn't the first time they've done that this season. I always park in Lot C when I drive to the park, and when I went in May, the entrance was blocked, forcing me to make a U-turn and park in Lot B instead. It screwed up my plan to leave the neighborhood some way besides the Dan Ryan because I'm not used to parking in the lot, and I didn't know how to get back that way. Then, my friend got mad at me for improvising after I missed our initial exit on the expressway. To think that all could have been avoided if we could have just parked in whatever lot we wanted. Whoever's in charge of this needs to explain things. I get the crowds suck this year, and that probably necessitates fewer game-day employees, but that shouldn't give you the right to change policy on the fly.

The problem is this has been going on far, far longer than during the rebuild. Remember stiffs like Joe Mays and Bruce Chen to name two off the top of my head????

Duffy doesn't own ****, except a 4.28 career ERA against the Sox. Remember Opening Day? The Sox had success against Duffy on April 27, too.

The Sox played a terrible game Saturday. Let's not make it out to be more than it is.
