He is so much better as a 7th or 8th inning guy. Kimbrell cant get here fast enough, lol
Haven't been following too close, but where is Kimbrell, is he doing a AAA assignment or something until they feel he's ready?

One thing that drives me up a fucking wall with the Cubs or whoever makes the decision. They will wait until 8pm to call a 7pm game knowing damn well the game couldnt have been played. By 5pm with today's technology you should know if the game can be played. Its a HUGE money grab

Well at least at a rooftop...you're drinking and eating for that period of time! Being in Wrigley with their shit food and insanely priced beer...it is a total scam!

Beer is same price as Guranteed Rape Field. Food is 100% better than it used to be. But I will say food is or has been better at Guaranteed Rape. Havent been there in a few years, but have tix for Cubs/Sux on July 6th.

On this day in 2003, Kyle Farnsworth made batters reconsider if charging the mound was a good idea...

Lol. I remember that. He liked to hit a lot of batters. Farnsworth is big dude too. He tackled that guy like a linebacker. Lol.

He was due for a shitty game. They hit 2, anything hit in that bullshit basket is a base hit.

Contreras hit 2, and Bote hit 1. That is 3, whether it landed in the basket or hit the street. You don't have to like it, but you have to accept it.

Do you have a pitcher as good as Giolito? Nope. He had an off day and Lester still needed help from the ump.

I wasn't bragging about Lester, though. You were touting Giolito this morning, and then tonight acted like you expected him to have a bad game. Lame, even by your standards...

And yes, Giolito has a mildly better ERA than Hamels this season (Giolito 2.74 vs Hamels 2.85) and both have only 2 losses on the season. I'd still take Giolito over Hamels, though, as Giolito has done that facing designated hitters, and on a much worse overall team.

Even the Sox "fans" can't acknowledge that their "ace" got shelled tonight.

10-2 looks pretty good for him, even though he's faced some lackluster competition to help pad his stats. He has surrendered a number of earned runs to the better teams, though: 14 runs in 20 innings in 4 games against NY(2), BOS, Cubs. Enjoy riding him for as long as he keeps winning against the worst teams in the league. He'll get some nice rest for his arm in the fall at least!

Games against <.500 teams: 7 (KC 4, TOR 2, SEA 1)

Beer is overpriced anywhere except at the liquor store. No exceptions. Just dont drink beer and enjoy the game.

The food is amazing on the south side. They are always adding new stuff and its actually not terribly priced. Still overpriced ball park food, but slightly cheaper and 10X better than the Cub game I was at 2 years ago when the Cards blew their asshole out.

The "ace" is the "ace" cause Rodon and Kopech are getting good ole Tommy John surgery.

I will readily admit that the concessions at the South side park have been better (and shorter lines) for the few times I've gone to games there.

Sox are on their way to being a solid team fairly soon. That's good for baseball and Chicago, even if it makes the North vs South arguments even more unbearable.
