I'm pretty close. His arm is suspect on every throw.

Talking about how quickly he makes the pivot, not his arm. That's a part of playing second (or anywhere) so we'll have to evaluate it. But I don't think judging him as being slow on the pivot based on that play is fair as I thought he was intentionally not trying to go fast.

True. It felt like one jam too many, and with a lead, I would have managed it differently, but he did well to only give up the 1 there. I just have no confidence in the bats right now.

i mentioned they really needed 7 innings.  He got there.  Now we need the pen.

Was just about to say the same thing.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

The bullpen really does need it, you’re right about that. Now it’s up to the offense.

I guess Hyde has seen enough of Vavra tonight too.

Not a good game for Terrin.

BTW Chi has just missed 4 or 5 HRs this series. Very much lucky to be in a position to win 2 of 3

Is Gavin Sheets any good? Seems like MVP caliber from this series. Jesus.

Kind of, the O’s are the better team. The White Sox are fortunate our bats have gone quiet. Giolito and Lynn have stunk this year too.

Elias has to figure some stuff out on offense this offseason. 

This said, we are not a bottom 5 offense. 14 in runs scored. 19th in OPS. In other words, ok

The offense is a bunch of guys that I think should be ok, but several aren't reaching that level this year.

The pitching is a bunch of guys that I've got no idea how they have done what they've done this year.

Definitely some room for offensive improvement, lots of paths they could go. Will be interesting to see who they add, may tell us more about which guys here that they don't believe in as it does about them loving some new guy.

Meh. Its not like theyve completely blown up. Sheets has been on fire. Abreu is a great hitter. AKin isnt that good but even last night he was unlucky as you said

Damn. I still believe in this teams spirit, but we could look back at this series being the beginning of the end of the cute little run.
