The Final Time to Open the Office.

20160520_091808The final game of the season, by now we all know the final score and it was not a great outing for Chris.

If I could have been anywhere today it would have been in Chicago at the park to have the final game experience. I have listened to people complain all year about why bother going. Go for all of us who can’t go, share with us your favorite seat, what do you like to eat at the park. There are a lot of Sox fans here in Australia who would love to be able to go. We get up at all hours of the night here to be able to watch and try and be a part of things.

I choose to look at things a little different, I see the positives. Sure I am frustrated and wished it had been a better season but there are pieces that did work and with the right foundation we can be in the mix next year.

*Injuries — boy did they bite us and hard. It seems like center field was cursed for a long time. Losing Austin Jackson, and Charlie Tilson both to season ending injuries was really tough, both are on the road to recovery and I hope we get to see them next year. Zack Duke and Jake Petricka with their injuries really took a lot of stability out of the bull pen.

*Adam Eaton – WOW, what an amazing season in right, Baserunners learned and early that if your gong to challenge him , most likely he will throw  you out. Congrats on being a Dad.

*Brett Lawrie – I miss your excitement and silliness. Your energy  was missed and I hope that you will be back next year, you had some amazing plays and I just sat here at my desk and shook my head as wondered how did you do it.

*J.B Shuck, Tyler Saladino, Carlos Sanchez – Thank You for stepping up in a moments notice, you all have grown as players and I really hope we get to see you again next season.

*Chris Sale, Miguel Gonzalez, Jose Quintana, Nate Jones, David Robertson – This group of gentleman to me is our core of the pitching staff. Sure there have been those crappy moments but there has also been moments of brilliance and I hope you stay together.

*Hawk , Steve and Jason — Thanks for all the call of the game, learning a bit with Sox math. I have even developed a few of my own Hawkisms for fun. Not sure if Hawk will go another season. If you decide not to have another year with us Hawk then “THANKS” for the fun and the knowledge you have  shared with us.

Chris Sale is off to the showers leaving Juan Minaya the keys to the office, Jacob Turner on way to the office for the final outing for him this season. Chris Beck found the office keys under the rosin bag. Chris just turned off the office lights in the visitors half of the 9th, Chris has the door closed (2 outs) Chris just locked the door with that strike out. ( 3 outs)

Final Record 78 and 84
