    27 now. They're gonna get that record! Historical bullpen management! :soexcited:



    9 for Jones, 7 for Robertson, 3 for Albers...



    He also leads the American League with 62 appearances, including 25(!) on zero rest. He appeared in his third straight game Monday and his fourth in five days. In his first full season back from elbow surgery. Robin fucking sucks.

    Well, that's just the kind of data they need to convince themselves they just need to spend $15M in the bullpen to be in contention. That's what they did after 2014.

    Although:

    64 save opps is the 2nd most in baseball.

    Solution, put games out of reach, you f@ggots.

    Robin sucks but the reason for this is mostly due to the pen just being really shitty

    A manager is worth 2 maybe 3 wins a season if I recall correctly. Is this team 2-3 wins away from a playoff berth.. NOPE.. Why fire someone just to fire someone. The problem is the owner.. and we can only hope that changes sooner rather than later.

    Can we talk about how shitty Avi Garcia's catch & throw that led to yesterday's loss was?

    Pure in-game strategy renders a manager worth 2-3 wins a season but that doesn't take into account his handling of the clubhouse, interactions with players, other coaches, etc. Make no mistake, Robin is a disaster as White Sox manager and regardless of talent (which there hasn't been much) there is no reason he should maintain his job.

    Heard yesterday that something like 5 out of 200 fly outs of 200 feet or less with a man on 3rd resulted in that man scoring.

    Flat footed, facing the wrong direction, double pumping.

    Perhaps on average, but I know that this season I'm not the only one who watched Robin make a crazy bullpen or in-game decision only to watch it immediately blow up in his face several times. Whether that's just bad luck or bad management, the team BS stat alone (27 for the Sox this year, think 31/32 might be the most this century) is showing how poorly the bullpen is being managed. Jones is going to have the most blown saves in half a decade with around a 2.50 ERA. Is he "shitty" or is just being misused, constantly pitching on no rest, pitching more than any other reliever in baseball, all in the most pressure filled situations. Even Robertson gets lit up every time he's pitching in a non-save situation, and yet that seems to happen about every other week. 2 nights ago, Robin sent 4 guys to the mound to get 3 fairly easy outs in a game they lost anyway.

    An underrated aspect of that awful sequence is that he didn't even reach the plate. Nowhere near actually.

    That's one of the least major league outfield plays I've seen in quite some time.

    Robin realistically can only be blamed for a handful of the losses. There's many times Robertson has come out and flat out sucked, his ERA is under 4. But we expected him to be an ERA under 3 reliever, so he's had a down year. Jones, Duke and Jennings have been the only reliable pen members.

    Duke is now gone and more importantly the back end of the pen can't be God awful, which it is for the Sox. Petricka and Putnam not being able to stay healthy has hurt the most. But since May, Albers has turned into one of the worst players in all of MLB, he has like a -2 WAR. And the trio of Ynoa, Kahnle and Turner can't throw strikes. So our pen is held up by 2 good relievers, an okay but underperforming closer, the relief pitching version of Shields and 3 guys that have control issues. Never going to get results with this group.

    Game 1: I went 2 innings. I'll go tomorrow but I might be attending minor league ball after tomorrow. I wish nothing more than for Robin to eat lead.

    I wouldn't either, but there hasn't been a lot of 40 HR seasons from guys.

    Just Frank, Belle, MVPaulie, Dye, Thome, and Dunn.

    Is Abreu seriously doing better hitting wise now cuz he saw his kid?

    Maybe Drake WAS the answer when looking at prior season.

    Abreu is hitting better because the pressure is completely off. He's fucking terrible, all 25 guys on the roster are crap.

    Winning solves all the minor other problems you mentioned.. Which Robin/Madden/ Mike S in LAAAAAAAAA can't do with this or past 3 year teams. They fired Ozzie and what did that do? I believe Robin's contract is up at the end of year, and their new manager is still in the dugout already.

    I can't believe the best trade in White Sox history would ever do such a dumb play.. With that said, Hahn failed on this trade no mistake about it. The Sox need two OF this coming off-season, along with two C and a 2b.. But good news, Jerry said we are going for it again! OOO and several bullpen pieces.

    Hawk compared Frazier to Bryant yesterday. Basically said Frazier's defense makes up for the 90 point gap in batting average

    Traded as part of a 3-team trade by the Detroit Tigers to the Chicago White Sox. The Detroit Tigers sent Brayan Villarreal to the Boston Red Sox. The Chicago White Sox sent Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox sent Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers. The Boston Red Sox sent Cleuluis Rondon (minors), Frankie Montas and J.B. Wendelken to the Chicago White Sox.


    Oh yeah; they really got the shit end of that deal with all those All Stars involved.
