Watching for Fun — Sox and Indians

Robbie - CopyThe Sox have a 2 to 0 lead in the bottom of the first with Jose Quintana in the office

We don’t have much time left with the boys and I want to enjoy them while they are still playing.

Adam Eaton is out on concession protocol and could return on Monday.

Q got himself with loaded bases and then out of the mess,  He has had to do that a few times this year.

This season has been a mess from the word go, starting with the pitching rotation. In my book that sets the tone for the season. Gong to the bullpen before the 5th or 6th inning also puts alot of stress on the boys. some of them having to pitch longer than they are due to .

It really is time for Robin to go. We need fresh eyes, someone who can inspire the guys and give better support. Maybe he does and we can’t see it but  it’s time for new blood at the helm

I wanted to listen to Hawk for the last few away games. I know a lot of you are not fans but I have learned so much about baseball and heard some great stories. I even write in Hawkisms, and created a couple of my own. Not sure if he will be back next season but I wanted to have those last few games with him just incase.

Bottom of 2 and the Indians get on the board 2 to 1. Jose is in a world of hurt at 50 pitches already. Chris Beck up and getting loose.

Top of the 5th saw Leury Garcia with a single, stole second and got to 3rd on a mis throw into center. Melky with a single getting Leury home for a 3 to 1 Sox lead.

Top of 6th and Todd Frazier puts it on the board for a 4 to 1 Sox lead.

We have good piece, losing Brett Lawrie, the curse of the center field, losing Charlie Tilson and Austin Jackson. Wonder if everyone had stayed healthy what might have happened.

On the way to the showers Jose slipped the keys in Tommy Kahnle ball cap, You could hear him yell when he put his hat on, “Damn Q that hurt”

Tommy is done, leaving the keys with Robin for Dan Jennings

Top of the 8th — J.B Shuck in to pitch run for Justin Morneau, hoping to see J.B next season. (yes, I am a fan partly due to him being a Buckeye). He is good in the outfield. If he could get some good consistent playing time things would improve. (He had a hot streak going with the bat but with the outfield moving around he lost time)

Todd is safe at first, the double clutch cost the out. Avi with a single gets J. B home for a 5 to 1 Sox lead. Carlos with a single getting Todd home for a 6 to 1 Sox lead. Leury Garcia with a single of his own to get Todd home for a 7 to 1 lead. Carlos Sanchez home on a wild pitch for an 8 to 1 lead.

Bottom of 8th and Nasty Nate Jones in the office. What a come back he has had. The back issues and then had to go through Tommy John. I think he is actually better now then he was before, his confidence and control is amazing. Working in some ways as a set up for David Robertson.

David Robertson finally turns the office lights out (1 out), Robbie hit the batter (by no means did he mean to ), Robbie with 2 on the pond, Finally Robbie shuts the door with that second out. (like the beard back), with another strikeout Robbie locks the door.

Final Score is White Sox – 8 and Indians – 1
