Ricky's Kids....

Post by cream919 on Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:07 pm

don't hit!!! Ooops...sorry...don't quit! 

Isn't it amazing how EVERY pitcher who faces the White Sox is just outstanding and brings their absolute best stuff? Amazingly, however, these same pitchers seem to be getting hit by other teams. I think it's a conspiracy...these pitchers must get together and plot to save their very best games for the White Sox.

I've been saying for the past few years that if every team just brought up minor league pitchers to face the White Sox, the Sox might not win a game all season. It's like they don't have minor league scouts.

The guy that was pitching against the Sox last night had filthy stuff in the couple of at bats I watched.  I saw a curve ball that was mind-boggling.

From what I've heard, he has had some success against the Sox, as do most guys who have "filthy stuff." Again. Coaching? Scouting?

But that's exactly my point Rob. Don't care how good he is, seems almost every pitcher we face has "filthy" stuff. The club spins it that the pitcher was outstanding and unhitable as opposed to just acknowledging that this is a very poor hitting team...which is just being honest. The White Sox made that guy last night look like Sandy Koufax Cy Young and Greg Maddux all rolled into one. Kevin's right, this stuff's been going on for years. Remember the Asian looking mediocre at best KC pitcher who practically built his entire career on how he pitched against the Sox? Shit gets old.

Let's not forget the historical fact that any pitcher having his first start against the Sox will pitch like Cy Young.
