Eloy Jimenez drove with me to Wrigley Field, and then he drove a dagger into the Cubs with his broken bat, game-winning home run. Our ride to the North Side on the White Sox Talk Podcast. 🎧 https://t.co/AZzegBAgLF
I can’t remember the last time I felt this way… maybe ‘07. The Sox are actually fun and will probably be pretty competitive next year. Those Twins are scary right now though. Where did their pitching come from?
believe me, I loved that Eloy blast…and the score on the Baez miss missile. but I am most heartened by the Sox pitching. starter did ok enough. Bummer is fantastic. and put the closer in Column A because, yeah. pitching has been the Sox weak point, understandable with the awful injuries. not last night.
Now Cubs are facing the best starting pitcher in the AL this season. Big game for Sox and Giolito as he pitches to bring Sox back to .500 and Cubs closer to it.

The ONLY thing I don’t love about this: Quintana is taking too much flak - he actually saved the Cubs season in 2017 and but-for others not doing their jobs the Cubs should have been back in the World Series. Had they won it, the deal would have been at least a “win-win” even if Q had never won another game. He still eats innings and helps solidify a very suspicious starting rotation.

Quintana is a quality arm so i still view that trade as a win-win. But I’m excited about Eloy’s power…just hope he starts making contact more often.

Justin Verlander and his 0.74 WHIP would like to have a word with you

The Sox players at least get pumped for these games, so it is more than the average game. It is nice to see the Sox and Ricky execute really well in a game like this. Good test for future playoff games.
==The victimhood and insecurity is strong in this one.== No, just nice to see the Sox totally unfazed by a bad call that cost them at least one run. Last year, something like that would have thrown them off the rails. I realize that the Cubs are the better team, for now, but the Sox are on the rise and the gap between the 2 teams is closing.
