Minaya has a 3.86 ERA making him one of the absolute best relievers on the team. Why would you drop him? What other well-performing players would you also drop just to spite the White Sox and cause it to lose as many games as possible to get the top draft pick?

Since you are the one who said split second decision making I want to make sure I have this correct. You're suggesting that the coach/player is taking into consideration there may be a strikeout when they are in the middle of a play and that somehow influences their split second decision making. In other words, there is a subconscious concern that the next batter may make a strikeout and that concern then plays a role in the decision to go home or not. I'm not buying it.

A nice, fairly clean game. Nova getting the game to the 8th was a pleasant surprise. Hopefully, Giolito can do the same tonight.

Anyone know why the Indians are starting their night games at 6:10 local time?

Exactly.

The idea takes a falsehood and assumes it to be a fact. Coaches canít possibly bemoan all the extra baserunners who are dying at 3B because of increased strikeouts when those extra dying baserunners are imaginary.

No, I don't mean outs on the bases. I mean stupid mistakes, like Anderson and Abreu's errors on Sunday, like Abreu running past Anderson on the bases after he hit a home run, the sort of mistakes Sanchez was making earlier in the season (those have gotten better though), guys not hitting the cutoff man.

These things have been happening for years and while I get this team is short on talent, I was kind of hoping that Ricky's staff would at least get them to stop making these kind of mental errors.

Seriously x10.

If you didn't look at the W-L column and only got your info from WSI and other fan forums, you'd think this team was on pace to lose 110 games.

Encouraging outing by Nova. This is actually his 3rd good start this season (the other 2 were within his first 3 starts). I have no idea if he can turn out to be a serviceable starter for us from here on out. It could very well be that he'll revert to getting lit up again next time. But maybe, just maybe, May 1 was just a bit too early to want him run him out of town on a rail.

Lemme guess: Downtown ballpark wants to get the downtown work force to come to games after they've had a chance to get some dinner?

Looks like they go back to 7 oíclock starts later in May. So maybe itís an attempt to play when itís slightly less cold early in the year. Or a way to let kids who are still in school see more of the game before bedtime.

Some truly horrific people hide behind their keyboards.

Bauer seems to be a pretty good guy. I enjoyed seeing his tweet at Tim Anderson about him being a fan of the bat flips but asking him to take a a day of rest. That even God rested one day a week. TA had a funny tweet about him having horrible numbers against Bauer so he was going to flip his bat if he had the chance.

That kind of stuff makes this game fun.

This offense has proven to be pretty good this year. I just wish the pitching could stay healthy!

Bauer's not exactly Mr. Keeps his Mouth Shut on Social Media himself. I don't know that he's ever outright said a slur on social media, but he's made some borderline comments on women.

Melting down against teams from Chicago is just a hobby of his as we learned in the 2016 World Series.

Okay, I gotcha. Well, all MLB teams make stupid mistakes, I'm not sure if there is a bonehead-O'Meter for each team. We're just subjected to the White Sox because we all watch them a lot more than the other 29 teams.


When it comes to baserunning, the White Sox have been very good this year by most all statistical measures this season. The fielding however has been very bad. I'd rather see the opposite if I had my choice....

ERA has some value, but the underlying stats paint a much different picture for sure.

Seriously. Is someone citing ERA based off 2.1 innings of work? Really?

Even *if* you took 2.1 innings as representative of anything, as pointed out in this thread, the underlying stats for those 2.1 innings are trash. 7.71 BB/9, 7.86 FIP, 5.48 xFIP, 1.71 WHIP. But hey, 15.43 K/9, so there's that!
