    They have done this 4 score times this year. Arod prattling about walking Caratini obviously hasn't seen Caratini bat much. Almora's lead was not good....I don't know, maybe he thought the LA catcher would throw behind him with Caratini batting lefty I think.

    Caratini obviously has to do a better job but for once I actually agree with A-Rod. If Almora isn't standing flat footed on the swing of the bat I think he sneaks in and scores. Got caught watching the game, IMO

    Honestly 2-5 against those teams on the road isn't horrible. Both were on long home winning streaks prior to the Cubs coming in.

    I wanted at least 3 to call it a successful trip, but I'm not losing any sleep over 2. Finished the season series with both, and still only 1 game out of first place.

    I got this and still never got back to normal....I will regress if I go too aggressive with certain activities.

    Strop is not the answer....I don't get paid anything by Ricketts and I know more than Maddon or Epstein on that one.

    This doesn’t seem ideal.

    It's like he didn't throw a lockdown 9th inning in LA Saturday night with a 1 run lead.

    Strop needs to put his hat on correctly.

    This White Sox pitcher has a weird set pause.

    Coming from a cubs fan like me I can’t see the hat helping him the way it is. Just an opinion.

    Eloy Jimenez is a problem. Not for me, as a Sox fan, of course.
