Mon. 8/29: Shields v. Boyd
Tues. 8/30: Ranaudo v. Norris
Wed. 8/31: Sale v. Verlander
Hit with bases loaded and 2 outs, 2-1 SOX
Shields throws the ball into center for no reason at all
Shields pitching well! Pull him and trade him quick!
5 IP, 1 ER, 83 pitches.
And there's the bomb. Pull him quick!
Robin uses 3 pitchers against 4 batters in the 7th for no real reason. Other than the walk Kahnle issued after replacing Jennings, there was never a threat. Genius.
Can't wait until this dipshit quietly "retires" once the Sox are done with him, since clearly no other team in baseball would ever be interested in him as a manager. There is literally nothing he's good at as a manager. Maybe never getting upset, if that's an asset.
Hawk: The Sox and the Cubs have one of the best rivalries in sports
Welp, the 5th pitcher he brings in blows it.
Ah, Robin bullpen management haps
We were totally going to sweep the Tigers and be at 66-66 before this btw
2 goners anywhere else to end it
Either way, you gotta take advantage of a rare non-8ER start from James Shields.
Perfect 2016 Sox game anyway. Leading most of the way, Robin makes the wrong decision (whatever it is, it ends up being wrong), game over.
Digging this "not watching the SOX anymore" shit.
I watched because there was nothing else on when I got home. I've become good at watching without any regard for the result.
+1 mentioned possibly taking a drive up to Minny this weekend, mainly to gtfo, but the Beloved happen to be there as well.
I think I got out of it by mentioning the obnoxious 7-hour drive
Mpls rules, Target Field is sweet, why the fuck not?
I'd have a better time going to Target Field to watch the Assfuck Twins play literally any other fucking team right now. My hatred has reached Bears-like depths....
But the plan is still in the running... Not really feeling 14+ hours behind the wheel on a holiday weekend tho
Better if you can break the drive up with some Wisco haps (e.g. LaCrosse) midway.
Ventura is doing gods work at this point. Not going to the playoffs so lose all you can for draft position.
Important since the Sox will probably make a WTF free agent signing this winter.
My money is on one of: Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran or Edwin Encarnacion.
Cy Young runner up!
These fuckers sure know how to lose.
Sale with 1 win since the All-Star break after winning 14 beforehand. Of course he wasn't ever getting to 20.
