    To look at the runner then lollipop it to someone 5 feet away in the outfield is truly incredible

    it's so crazy someone would act irrationally in the midst of a frustrating and emotional moment.

    not to mention the umps were terrible all series.

    Rhys always does this but sure. Also cussing out the umps because you didn’t hit a home run is beyond irrational

    8. The White Sox should be in first. Even with Luis Robert's scary-looking hip-flexor injury suffered Sunday, and with Eloy Jimenez on the shelf for a couple more months, and with Yasmani Grandal and Jose Abreu struggling, they are still an incredible array of talent. And one that warrants better managing than it has gotten.

    One can forgive Tony La Russa for a difficult transition back into the dugout. He was away for 10 years. And yet at some point, that excuse gets tired, and with some of La Russa's maneuvering, one can understand why the patience in some parts of the White Sox's clubhouse is growing thin.

    The latest came last week, when, trailing by three, with runners on first and second and one out in the eighth, La Russa allowed Billy Hamilton and Leury Garcia to hit, even though Robert was available on the bench. La Russa's explanation after the game was that he was "looking for a single there."

    It wasn't the only mistake he made that game. After an awful start in which La Russa let his best pitcher, Lucas Giolito, languish for seven runs in one-plus innings, Giolito had bounced back with a solid six innings. La Russa sent him back out for the seventh. Giolito wasn't going to ask out of the game. That responsibility fell on La Russa, who after the game said he didn't realize Giolito was gassed.

    He'd made the same error three weeks earlier with reliever Matt Foster and admitted "that's lousy managing." Perhaps this is a sign that La Russa would be best to cede some of the responsibility for pitchers to Ethan Katz, whom the White Sox brought in from San Francisco's aforementioned pitching machine to handle the staff.

    La Russa is a Hall of Famer because of his strategic acumen, and it's ostensibly the reason White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf brought him out of retirement. So to see him bungle things so badly -- pinch-hitting Garcia for Andrew Vaughn, the hard-hitting rookie, later in the week was another flub -- leaves the White Sox in a perilous place: with a manager who isn't optimizing the phenomenal talent he has been given.

    "
    At FanGraphs about a fortnight ago, Dan Szymborski released his list of 2021’s most irreplaceable players, based on the difference in postseason probabilities for teams with and without their specific stars. Mike Trout headed the list, which, of course. Gerrit Cole was second, and Ronald Acuña Jr. third, and they make sense. Alex Bregman fourth? Yup. Jacob deGrom fifth? Sure.

    Two spots after the MVP and Cy Young favorites, Luis Robert appears. With a healthy Robert, the White Sox have a 69.2 percent chance of making the postseason. Without him, that number drops down to 46 percent. Only the aforementioned five players and Carlos Correa could cost the teams more by not being around."

    Shit congrats? #Kansas City Royals

    Ohtani is magical. Gets to second on an error on a ball hit up the middle. Thrown out trying to steal third with Trout up though

    The fact Pujols can still even foul off 100 MPH pitches is amazing given his age. Glasnow got him swinging with a 84 MPH breaking ball after four straight pitches over 97 with three right about 100. Tough pitching landscape to navigate this late in such a long career
