It will be interesting to see how Sale's pitching hand reacts after cooling down between innings. The way he jumped around, the ball that hit him had to do some kind of damage.

I actually am somewhat of a Getz fan. I like the way he plays even though he isn't great or anything. I don't blame him for Yost's ineptness.

Nightfyre
08-17-2012, 08:03 PM
Getz has no great tools but the work ethic and technique. You gotta respect that, even if you recognize he is best used as a platoon player at second.

Three predictions for the game today: (Why not make it more interesting?)
1) Yost will leave Mendoza in for an inning too long, resulting in at least two extra runs.
2) Butler will go yard on Sale.
3) The Royals bullpen will strike out at least three batters in the last two innings.

The Sox have decided they don't want Frenchy to beat them. But IIRC Frenchy has decided that for other teams on his own all year.

Getz with a fractured thumb, that'll prolly stick him to the DL for the rest of the year. An opening for Gio, maybe.

mr. tegu
08-17-2012, 09:02 PM
That's the Alice I know and love.

No it isn't. It is the Gordon that Yost is forcing him to be but he simply isn't. The Gordon we know and love hits .300 and gets on base at a .380 pace as a leadoff hitter.

He can't hit when they expect production from him. He can't handle it. Never has.

Depends on what you mean by "production." They expect production from a leadoff hitter, no? Well Gordon has certainly met if not exceeded expectations in that role these past two seasons.

Royals now have 4 highest hits games vs Chris Sale in MLB this year. 10, 9 tonight, 8 and tied for 4th with 7

gblowfish
08-17-2012, 09:09 PM
Yost said they wanted Gordon to be relied on as a 3-4-5 hitter from this point forward. He always tanks when he's put anywhere but leadoff, or in 7 or 8 hole. What is he now since being moved? Zip for nine with no walks?

mr. tegu
08-17-2012, 09:10 PM

I'm telling you, Alex would be IDEAL in the 2 hole. But we really don't have anyone ideal for the one hole, so why not -

1- Gordon, LF
2 - Cain, CF
3 - Moose, 3B
4 - Butler, DH
5 - Hosmer, 1B
6 - Perez, C
7 - Myers, RF
8 - Getz/Gio platoon

Man im sorry to all you negative ****ers. I'm starting to love this team. They got fire. Can't wait til we start winning. Its going to happen.It's just that it's too little, too late. But, I'm still paying attention, and I'm usually done with 'em by this point. I can see glimpses of that bright future we've been hearing about.

It would take a Rockies -like run to get us to the playoffs. That said, it would be ****ING AWESOME.

If we could play the Mariners and Twinkies the way we play the Sox, Detroit, and Tampa we would be right in the thick of it.

I am not sure that any of the negative people are left. I still haven't given up on the division :D probably not something I should admit though :hmmm:

I'm too young to be perpetually bitter about the Royals. I'm sure I'll get there before long.

i've been impressed with mendoza's last 4 or 5 starts. big willie style's been doing great as well. just imagine if we'd had this going all season long.

Don't forget Guthrie has only given up 3 runs his past three starts including a 7 inning and 8 inning shutout performances.

Winnah!

They're acting like Getz died.

Not that big a deal. Let's play Gio and see what we've got. What's to lose?

It looks like Johnny Giavotella is on his way to Kansas City. Has been pulled from lineup in Omaha's game.

Cool. An extended look is what we need from him.

absolutely. i knew i was forgeting our number 3 (or is it 5). i've always been enamoured with Hoch. but i'm finally seeing the error of my ways.

don't know who reported it, but didn't they say that gio has been killing it in the minors?

Guthrie/Mendoza/Smith have all been much much better than expected lately. Guthrie's fastball has been just filthy with the late break. Eiland thought he could fix him, and now I'm starting to believe him. I still want to see if they can keep up after adjustments are made.

r.i.p. getz

He was killing it before he came ip the first time but he failed pretty miserably and got sent back down. Hopefully he has fixed some things and will realize getting to the bigs is nice but the real challenge is to stay there and to do that you have to keep working hard at it.

The only thing worse than watching post-game White Sox show after a Sox win is after the Royals beat the White Sox. I hate everything about the White Sox. Fucking hate.
