Default *Official* 8-14 Hey the Sox won! Postgame Thread

The best and worst of Giolito all in one night. He is maddening.


Otherwise nice to see a win.


They were talking on the radio this morning about how this is the point where it's really easy to ignore the White Sox. Can't disagree.

I’m pretty sure that point hit several years ago.

Just my luck. I watched the first inning and saw him let Detroit immediately tie up the score and turned the game off in disgust. Turned the game on later in the sixth and watched him start the inning by loading the bases with nobody out. Turned the game off again in disgust. Maybe I just should not watch and just check the score once in a while. it would be much better for my blood pressure.

LOL I was only half watching and admit I missed him loading the bases and making it out of the jam. Glad they left him in. Stuff like that will pay dividends down the road.

Feeling you! Hopefully next year things will start falling in place sooner than later!

I believe you're right. His teammates were quick to give him support after being relieved. A nice team moment.

It's no coincidence his rebound started when his velocity ticked up from 91-92 to 94-95.

Bull****. No one ignores other Chicago teams when they're bad. We get the same Bears and Bulls crap no matter how bad they are. Who ever said it was being a jag.

And with that win, the White Sox will not equal the record of the 1962 Mets.

Of course, those 1962 Mets had Gil Hodges, Jim Hickman, Richie Ashburn, Roger Craig and Frank Thomas. So they had STARS and were awesome.

Cool story: Evidently Ryan LaMarre’s uncle caught his home run ball.

That is a cool story. You just know somewhere in the past couple days he cracked "Hit one to me" and everyone laughed...

Gutsy outing by Giolito- earlier in the season, I'm sure that 6th inning would have led to a complete meltdown- he threw alot of strikes last night.

Nice 2 inning outing by Fry, 2 hits by Anderson- a good night for the guys that are part of the rebuild.

On a separate note- James Shields now has a lower ERA than Quintana.

I texted that little morsel to my Cub fan friends last night. Many asked for Eloy and Cease back. I think not.

Through June 16th, Giolito was averaging 91.6 MPH on his fastball, and had a 7.14 ERA with more BB than K. Since then, his fastball has been 93.2 MPH, with 7 quality starts out of 10 and almost a 2:1 K/BB ratio. Still a 4.92 ERA thanks to a couple 7-run meltdowns, but it's pretty clear that some kind of productive adjustment was made.
