    How About them Sox ?

    Post by rmapasad on Sat Apr 23, 2016 12:04 pm

    Impressive beating Texas last night.   10% of the season over and the Sox are only 1/2 game back in the AL Central and in the # 1 Wild Card spot in the AL.  Interesting thing so far is the extremes.  Sox are still at the bottom of the barrel offensively - 2nd to last in Runs per game, last in OBP, last in BB's, 2nd to last in Slug % and Bat Avg.       Seven guys have sub-.225 Bat Avgs (Abreu, Frazier, Jackson, Garcia, Rollins, Navarro, Avila).   On the other hand, the pitching has been amazing.  # 1 in the AL in Runs Prevented, # 1 in starter ERA and Reliever ERA in the AL.   3 starting pitchers and 6 relievers with sub- 2.00 ERA's. 
    Obviously, things will "revert to the mean" as the season progresses.  Hitters won't continue to be this bad, and pitchers won't keep being this good.  The good news is that the Sox are where they are despite another poor offensive start.

    I am enjoying the wins.

    It is APRIL.
    I take this a game at a time.


    I really enjoy the new TV announcer.  Every ballgame is not the Invasion of Iwo Jima.  It is a fucking ballgame.


    The DEFENSE has improved.
    Pitching and DEFENSE keeps a team in games.


    Go Hawks!!

    I like the new announcer, too.  Evidently he grew up a White Sox fan and cut his teeth doing college and minor league games.  He seems very knowledgeable, is easy to listen to, and works well with Stone (whom I have grown accustomed to over the years).

    The new guy talks with Stone.  He lets Stone make a point.  He does not talk over Stone or at Stone.


    NO SCOREBOARD WATCHING IN APRIL.


    No manic depressive highs and lows over a damned ballgame.
