    other than the 2 blown saves against the Mets and the 2 blown saves against the Braves he's been great (this yr). he just absolutely sucks in important division games, been like this forever and therefore i hate him

    his lefty hitting has definitely improved but he is so elite from the right that i would almost like to see him hit from the right side exclusively to see what happens

    This shit sucks



    Madrigal was gonna be a 3-4 WAR player this year easily

    Eloy and Robert were 3-6 WAR type players

    White Sox are gonna be lucky to win the shittastic AL Central at this rate

    Madrigal has a 98.6% zone contact rate. So he apparently swung and missed at a couple pitches in the zone. Hopefully he can improve on that next year

    I don't follow baseball as closely as I used to so I'm way behind on this, but reading up on the science of spider tack is fascinating. 538 article said it gives about a 2-300 increase in RPMs on fastballs which results in about a 50 point decrease in BA. If they weren't enforcing it and you're not doing it you're basically playing to lose.

    1/3rd of our projected starting lineup. Bad luck, but they have to make a move for either an OF or 2B now. Deciding on which would depend on the market I suppose.

    I think though knock on wood no pitching injuries they can still win the division since it’s pretty mediocre to put it lightly.

    JD Martinez solo shot off Greinke in B3 ties it 3-3. Such a great series matchup

    Good to see Martinez go yard again after quieting a bit/hurting his wrist

    Bogaerts follows with a double

    No one played Monday and now like half the teams are off

    mlb scheduling is so dumb because now the teams that had 2 days off this week will probably have to play for 2 weeks straight

    it was a tough decision but at the end of the day, the idea of taking a safe vaccine to not die as a cancer survivor was just something i couldnt do
