That was horrifying
Glasnow vs Ohtani tomorrow night....jeez
A's and Jays start a 4-game series tomorrow night, that'll be fun
To look at the runner then lollipop it to someone 5 feet away in the outfield is truly incredible
There he is
yeah we are hurting injury wise right now
starting C, 3B, S, 2B, CF and 2 of our starting pitchers are hurt
My my my
That's not out. Double wow
what a dumb sport
Why is he motherfucking the umps
Good at bat bryce
Rhys Hoskins saying “fuck you” to the umps after replay showed it wasn’t a home run is very on brand for him
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.
he’s been really good this year
nice to see
Would anyone with access be able to post the blurb about the White Sox from this article?
Rhys always does this but sure. Also cussing out the umps because you didn’t hit a home run is beyond irrational
What is best podcast that recaps the MLB week?
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.
expected but doesn't mean it doesn't suck. that said, i'm sure he'll come back better than ever and destroy the padres for years to come
no ohtani tonight :(
might be a wrap for his season
the Robert news fucking sucks god damn it. The May news seemed inevitable the moment I saw it happen
well that is a bummer. Still really looking forward to Rays/Angels and Jays/A's tonight but that was gonna be a treat
Heard him and Eloy are sharing a plot.
also not great that David Price and Tony Gonsolin are also hurt
We can’t have anything nice
Welcome back Lo Cain! Solo HR in T1
Hey welcome back Yelich too! No HR...yet
Brewers just got more fun
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
white sox gonna trade for gallo
Holy shit at that Pillar shot. 2-run HR in T3 puts Mets up 5-2 in STL
3-run bomb by Arenado ties it 5-5 in B3. Fun game
Ball must be flying out that way pretty good. You don't see LoCain do this often.
I don’t see the benefit of having Buehler have 8 days between starts
Making a video is a lot easier than making a real offer to him I guess
Montas vs the Jays
are there durability concerns with buehler? i guess if anyone can afford to manage innings like that it’s the dodgers
Lol holy shit they were both fucking bombs.
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
That sound wow
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
