Gamethread: White Sox at Angels

Can James McSlam hit another one tonight? (@Whitesox)

After an exhilarating win last night, the Chicago White Sox are back at it this evening in Anaheim. Though we won’t have the one-man sideshow that is Bill Walton; Mike Schur will join Jason in the booth tonight.

Héctor Santiago will be on the bump for the Good Guys, and rookie Jose Suarez will start for the Angels.  Suarez has been struggling, with a 2-4 record with a 6.57 ERA in 11 games, going 0-3 in the last seven. Héctor is 0-1 in his only start for the Sox, taking the “L” in a 10-6 loss to Detroit on August 6, giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings.

The game is on NBCSN and WGN AM 720. Your starting lineups for tonight are:

I’ll have a full recap after the game!

James “The Deli-master” McCann because he’s a salami expert

My wish list for the remainder of the season:

DFA Castillo
Send down Goins, Engle, & Skole
Add Robert & Mercedes to 40 man and call them up
Recall Moncada & Collins

Haha give him a few games to get back to game speed, he’s been out a while. It’s a formality and he’ll be back next week.

I’ll forgive the Red Sox fandom for Mike-he seems to be enjoying what he’s doing tonight.

Long AB there for McCann, at least. Now, time to see what Santiago has tonight.

I thought Santiago was going to retire Trout there. Silly me.

Eloy has had some awful BABIP luck this series. It’s nice to see one go his way.

I can’t wait to have a competent 5th starter in our rotation.

Nova has really stepped up, and that has been incredible.

He has, and most teams would covet him as a fifth or possibly fourth starter

He’s our 4th starter though…I know he’s been great in the second half, I’ve been watching too. Having Santiago or Detwiler or Covey as a 5th starter is unsat. It’ll probably be Banuelos when he’s done rehabbing, also unsat.

I did not expect we’d have the dominant White Sox gamethread on day three of the new site. That is pleasing. Imagine once I figure out how we can pop photos or gifs into comments …

Well done, crew!

yep, I gotta find that plug-in, that and pics/gifs are sort of crucial. At the top of the list!

How is MIke Trout so good at baseball? It is so awesome to watch, but it does stink when it’s against the Sox.

Looks like SSS eked out a close win against us tonight, but tonight we rose up and punched em in the MOUF! (way to go, Lauren’s mom!)

Or you could just be like my wife, who today watched/refreshed the YouTube video of me and Sale on our “new YouTube channel” like 15 times to pump up the views, by just continuing to leave comments FTW …

If you WANT that notification, you need to go to your personal settings (your photo icon in the top right corner), go to settings, and turn them on. (I think they are already on, by default.)
