    God damn it. Can we just get someone up in the bullpen. Ridiculously bad pitching.

    Good it’s September.
    Why isn’t Devers playing yet?

    It is too bad the Sox offense can't seem to score in the first inning. Our opponents make it look so easy.

    Considering this team is constitutionally incapable of ending games before midnight, this makes sense.

    Late start and everything. I don’t know how you people with lives follow this team.

    Just to show how bad the pitching has been before todays game we were 25 out of 30 teams in team ERA 5.54 in the past 7 days AFTER Erods performance last night. Just horrid. Starting out well today.

    This is one team where getting into the bullpen is still a sound strategy.

    It’s difficult to follow as I did 30 years ago, but try to follow Sox and Pats all I can.

    It could be short if they would stop swinging at bad pitches.

    Sharply hit, but they had him played there. Still, great AB.

    Yes. It said something else, like defensive player, I think.

    If you can't get the White Sox out, you should not be starting to a division leading team. No more BJ please.

    that should probably be his last start until we've clinched.

    Just an awful pitching performance when we could perhaps pick up a game on the Yankees. Pathetic.

    It’s a testament to this team that they haven’t completely collapsed under the dead weight of this many starts by fungible long relievers.

    in the stretch of bad pitching, the hitting is also equally repulsive.

    And if that continues, then they are screwed, but continuing to post it won't make them pitch any better.

    He's a pretty useful as a swingman on a pre-arb salary, so I predict he's still our SP 6 or 7 next season. He will never reach arbitration for any team, however.

    7 hits and a BB in 1.1IP will do that.
