Just a bleep, bloop, walk and slam away from a 10th inning.

FWIW, during the broadcast they mentioned that this was the first ever 4-game sweep for Cleveland in Chicago.

So, are we going to win another game before the all-star break?

And only 123 pitches for Sale....way to go Ventura. Pitch his arm out so we can win 65 games.

Saving the bullpen for the stretch drive.

Well- the good news is the 2013 White Sox maintained their 3 game lead on the 1970 White Sox.

June 30, 1970- Sox lost 4-3 to Oakland- despite a HR (off Catfish Hunter) and 3 RBis by Carlos May- in front of 5,251 at old Comiskey Park.

For June- 1970 White Sox were 9-19, 2013 White Sox- 8-19,

I always wondered what it would feel like to root for a team that was going to lose 100 games. Turns out its not that great.

Still love the game of baseball but man is it hard to watch when the people playing it are lifeless.

Seems like Stone got pretty agitated at the end by Alexei staring out at Masterson. So it goes.

I don't have a problem with a 123 pitches. A hundred twelve years of major league baseball history doesn't support the claim limiting a pitcher to a hundred pitchers preserves his arm or limits the risk of injury in the long run.

Alexei is one guy that seems to think he is intentionally hit every time.

More Dr. Seuss, please.

With apologies to tebman, I can't even approach his cleverness, but this is how I feel today:

I will not watch them in a boat
I will not watch them with a goat.

I do not like these White Sox men
I do not like them anywhere.

I'm tipping my cap. Masterson threw the nastiest **** I've seen all year. Three fastballs and a change and two sliders. All under control and breaking sharp. If you love great pitching, this was a masterpiece.

And the series wasn't a total loss. It reminded me of another Kipnis, a Russian, later American opera singer of long ago. Got some great stuff on YouTube. Check it out if you like that sort of thing. The 2nd baseman is pretty damn good too.

What else am I supposed to write about when the team sucks this bad?

If we were using the duodecimal system instead of the decimal system, people would probably praising Ventura for keeping him under pitch count right now.
Japanese baseball does not have the Major League pitch count theory. I wonder if anybody has any kind of info based on that. They also throw a lot between starts I've heard. I don't know . Do they last longer , have shorter careers?

It seemed pretty unbelievable that the Indians had never swept a four game series in Chicago, even though both teams have played since 1901. That actually kinda makes me happy since it shows that at least the Sox haven't had nearly as pathetic a history as the Tribe. Hey, you grasp at whatever positive straws are there in a year like this one.

Yeah Cleveland has been pretty bad, really only real good in the 40's, 50's, early 60's and the 90's mostly. I think that's right. Their 1920 WS title was a direct result of the banishment of the Black Sox was it not? Comiskey banished the culprits at the end of the season and the Indians beat them by 2 games. Besides that, 1948 ,54, the 90's, not much. The Sox have been marginally better I guess. I like the Indians lineup and they have decent pitching , and a manager who knows what he is doing. I think they are setting up for a pretty good run .

I feel you. The vendor thread made me angry again about my recent bad experience at Leona's.
