Default *Official* 4-10 Hitters have a bad case of TB until the 9th; RAYS 6 SOX 5 Postgamer

Today was the first day since the Toronto series that the Sox actually took batting practice. Looks like it finally took hold in the ninth.

Default *Official 4/10/18 Postgame: Just Another Day At The Office*

Bad weather (again), clownish performance in the outfield (again), mental mistakes (again...hello Tim Anderson), more strikeouts by Moncada (again), little hitting (again) until it was to late and bad pitching (again)

It all adds up to another loss to a miserable team.

"Rickey's Boys Don't Quit"... great example this afternoon... but the don't win any games either.

Wonder when was the last time the Sox got swept for an entire homestand?

Like I said yesterday, losing is one thing especially in a rebuild...but losing AND looking bad is something totally different. Right now this team is bad.

This pitching is atrocious, and has lost almost all of the games for us. I know the offense was bad, but we should get away with 4:5 runs.

First time since 1975, Sox have started the year 0-5 at home.

Ahhhh, the memories.

At minimum, MLB should require both teams to play in the same weather conditions.

Itís true, they put on the outdoor heating system every time they come up to bat. They also line up fans that blow air out as the opposing team steps up to the plate. Itís truly incredible how much adversity we overcome daily, and that we have three wins.

I was impressed how Anderson got the ninth inning instigated, and that Moncada got on base in advance of Abreuís blast.

Dump:

Laugh all you want but with the off the field issues for this franchise (a subject we're not allowed to talk about) wasting six home dates in lousy, brutal weather isn't helping their situation one single bit.

As Bob Grim told me in his interview, MLB helped the Indians when they were struggling with the schedule to bring better teams at better times to the park.

They sure aren't helping the Sox are they scheduling early April home games to start with and then (on paper) the caliber of the opposition. Not that the second point really matters...the Sox can't beat them anyway.

Oh by the way 1-10 RISP position this afternoon. Forgot that one earlier.

What does that mean?

The young players will have their ups and downs. The young pitchers are walking too many, which is to be expected. But they have "stuff". Most of them will work it out.
Anyway, I wish they had brought in a couple of decent veteran pitchers to stabilize things, instead of these vets who just can't pitch a lick. Shields, Gonzales, Santiago...they are not even 5th starters on a decent team.
It would be nice to get Rodon back.

Anxiously awaiting the answer on this one.

"Decent" veteran pitchers cost lots of $ and years.

$ for which the Sox have no business wasting.

Years for which you don't need guys clogging up roster spots for when the kids are ready.

Ugh.

The White Sox were already just about as fortunate with the early schedule as they possibly could have been. They played two series on the road to start the season, one of which was played in a dome. The MLBPA successfully negotiated four extra off-days into the schedule, so the season needed to start with a weekend series in March instead of an early-week series in April. The weather in March and April sucks in Chicago. Such is life in a cold-ass city.

They’re not going to schedule double-headers. They’re not going to shorten the schedule. They’re not going to scale back the postseason. And they’re not going to saddle the warm-weather and dome teams with three-week extended April homestands every season. They’re simply going to keep doing what they have been doing for decades: play a few games in miserable conditions to start the year and chalk it up as a cost of doing business. We need to just accept it and move on.

I 100% agree. The Sox should play all their home games in June, July, and August. This way also to avoid the nonsense of the kids being in school.

0-5 since blowing the home opener.

And I'm not trying to troll but the Sox were 23-10 when they lost that game in Texas a few years back. They went 54-74 the rest of the way. Was that all because of the blown save? Of course not. I just think that some losses are more demoralizing than others and the home opener in my opinion was one of them.

Avi's been lost this series. Hope he finds it again soon.

I'm guessing he means attendance and that playing in 30 degree weather isn't helping people want to venture to the ballpark?

In any event suggesting that a team cancel games in crummy weather to make up at a later time in better weather doesn't seem like such a crazy idea that should be mocked endlessly.
