Well the Tigers just threw in the towel. Traded J.D. Martinez. Damn, they still have a chance. Had now.

They're only 6 games out, they've won 3 in a row -- Tygiz are far from finished -- let's go Sox

My point. They still have outside shot.

And now the GM Avila might have to trade his son. That should be interesting.

I'd be ok with that trade. Might as well get something for someone who shouldn't be in your longterm plans.

have never equated throwing in the towel with still having an outside shot -- all good, they still have that
Sox have played A Lot of baseball lately -- the new kid, Lin, and some of the PawSox players like Castillo, Swihart Holt etc, will be called on down the stretch

Pablo back to the Giants. I thought he burned that bridge.

It's where he had his biggest success & was one of their most popular players on those three WS teams -- didn't seem so much that Panda left SF on a sour note -- the Sox came calling w/a 95M check.....

ESPN headline says: "Phillies prospects are ridiculously good"
headline in USA Today said "White Sox have loaded up with talented prospects" & that ChiSox are targeting 2019 as another 1959

so the cellar dwellers, if one believes the media, will soon be powerhouses
let's go Sox

And the Sox still owe him almost $50 million. Wow.

Regarding the rebuilding teams, I hadn't heard anything about the Phillies but living in Chicago I hear about the White Sux all the time. I think they are doing the right things. Might as well get something for your assets since you aren't going anywhere good at any time soon.

Gotta feel for the guys that have been there a while. Whenever I see Rick Renteria doing interviews I just shake my head. Just a matter of time before he is gone. Just collecting his paycheck and he knows that.

Not mentioned in the newspaper article on ChiSox' great prospects was Yoan -- ChiSox called up Yoan ystrdy
We probably still owe him money too from the $31.5 mil signing-bonus windfall we treated him to as an unknown teen sensation from Cuba
Yoan has hit .285 in Triple A this year w/17 steals in 24 attempts.
He's always gotten the ravest of reviews -- look at this copy trumpeting his arrival ystrdy

"Reports on the switch-hitting Moncada tout him as a potential five-tool player — one who can hit for high average with power, speed, and above-average defense at second base for years to come. His left-handed swing has drawn comparisons to that of Robinson Cano. Baseball America’s report on Moncada marvels at his athleticism, touting that he “possesses the size and strength of a linebacker and he runs like a runaway locomotive.”

Move aside Frank Merriwell I guess......

Once Pablo gets cleared to play & reacclimated, & soaks up the standing O he'll get
.....in combination w/MadBum's return, & SF basically playing out the string/getting ready for next year
.....Panda should hit like a giant & SF win more than lose in a no-pressure 2nd half of season

Cubs have come to play 2nd half -- they'll soon-enough overtake Brew, & can Bucs stay right on their tail

our own second-half chances rest on the arms of the big 3 & Craig -- let's go Sox

With the front end of the Red Sux rotation, they should probably win the division running away.

I would agree -- However
only Chris in the rotation in Seattle -- meantime it's not just Felix anymore -- we see Paxton (9-3) tmrw nite
...& after missing the first half of season, Felix starting to pitch like a king again (two earned runs through 18 innings over his past three starts) & we see him Tuesday -- let's go Sox, falling back under .500 will have long-term ramifications

you were right about that Lee, there was some acrimony when he left SF -- Pablo acknowledged it & apologized upon his return

but the article is lavish about ChiSox, saying they've "completely overhauled" their farm system, mentioning a blue-chip prospect, Rutherford. They have 10 of the top 68 prospects in baseball according to Baseball America, the article says, adding that ChiSox "are building a team that could contend in 2019"

....snickers & catcalls at last-place cross-town Sox, will mix in w/cheers for the 1st-place, WS champion Cubs this week at Wrigley -- Yoan (.077) started fast w/a bases-clearing triple Friday, but hitless since --
Bucs also play a cellar-dweller, SF, & gotta keep pace w/Cubs

First of four Cubs / Whte Sux games. Two here and then two at Comiskey. Most expensive ticket today is $329.

Wish I had a lot of disposable income.

The wife is at the game. A vendor took her. Paid day off and a free Cubs/Sux game. Not a bad day.

Cool -- did she say what the atmosphere was like & if the visitors came in for a lotta wisecracks from Cubbies fans

It'll be like a Windy City baseball hootenanny when it moves to W. 35th Wed & Thurs -- the only two Comiskey sellouts of the season as they drop in in droves from W. Addison St. -- making it ... a 50/50 ratio or so among Cubs/ChiSox fans?

That's what the Pirates are -- 50-50, w/MadBum on the horizon tonite -- Mil plays resurgent Wash

Drew has pitched well his last several starts -- basically it's Chris, then him, then David, Rick & Eduard R is now back & pitched respectably last night

if Drew (10-4) can keep it close & stay w/it going into the late innings -- & if we can Somehow scratch out a run or 2 off Felix --

it's the go-to part of Sox, but the offense has been Inconsistent the last few weeks -- the all star break didn't help -- I don't think their kid was that good last night, We're Just Not Hitting --

Rick has had bad luck this season, his record is nothing like how he's pitched & he'll tear it up down the stretch --

let's see what Devers, the new kid who the Boston papers are playing up like they did Yoan, can do

- Brock's bout w/vertigo is over, he's back, & he & Lin should platoon at third base -- they're ahead of Devers, & a grizzled veteran like Hernandez will eat the poor kid's lunch tonite

Let's go Sox

I didn't think today's ballplayers were using cocaine. The author of the following article seems to think they are using.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/major-league-baseball-cocaine_us_597b50 5ae4b02a4ebb75150b?ilk&ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009

Based on the article I don't think it is reaching the level of the 80's Mets.

Great game in DC yesterday. I attended the win on Wednesday, darn sure would have like to have been there to see all those 4 back to back home runs. I was in the car listening on the radio. My dogs thought I had gone crazy.

Was able to watch the third inning on re-play last night.

The Rockies are in town for the weekend. Every game is a test. I'm looking forward to the Nationals/Dodgers series in September.

Most homers I ever saw live was 5. I was 9 but remember it like it was yesterday. Mays homered. McCovey hit a moonshot to the scoreboard in Shea; but more impressive was his liner that was out of the park in a second

I wish I had been around to see some of those greats. Mays, Aaron, Gibson, Koufax, Drysdale, Stargell, etc. Kind of a golden era.

Still remember (on TV) in the 1968 WS when Gibson broke Koufax's WS strikeout record. They announced it on the scoreboard; McCarver noticed and started to walk to the mound gesturing to Gibson. I thought Gibson was going to kill him. The toughest competitor I ever saw (when a Clemente line drive broke his leg he didn't come out of the game till it completely snapped.

There was a SI article where he said "I wouldn't let my 10 year old daughter beat me in checkers)

Was able to see many of these greats, like Luis Aparicio, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Bob Veale, when they played in Boston near the end of their careers

A disgruntled David has put himself on the DL -- the fans would have been In His Corner tonite in this dispute he's having with the media right now -- had he pitched Sox to victory tonight, fans would've been telling the Boston Hearld where to get off -- in the paper today, one of their writers encouraged fans to boo David off the mound tonite

apologies & please carry on
