Yeah, still leaving a lot of runners on base. Nice to see Teoscar heating up. He's been having a good June.

Fire hitting coach. I've never seen so many swings and misses at balls. Scott and his crew will not be taking us to a world series it's just not going to happen.

White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn has only given up 3 hits and has 16 strikeouts through 7 innings...  and is losing the game right now. Lol.

There isn't a manager on earth that could take this group of players (on offense) to a world series.

Massive 3 rbi triple by Kelenic in the 8th to give the M's a 4 run cushion heading to the 9th.

There is..With pitching and D it's been done and can be done again
but you need small ball mixed in with bunts,sbs and bb's.
Maddon did it with the Cubs and I'd argue those core players struck out
a lot and batting averages sucked but that one year where they played
as a unit doing all the little things.
I don't think SS is the guy for the next step and honestly I'm not sure who is.
As for today-Good game by Bryce!
Marco and Flex can take the rest of the year off!

I'm gonna have to disagree because I said with this group of offensive players. This team isn't built for small ball. We don't have a bunch of guys that can regularly bunt effectively, take walks, and steal bases.

Nice to see JK wake up a bit. Let's hope it's the start of a trend.

Helluva start by Miller. We needed him to go deep and he goes 7.

White Sox fans just watched their starting pitcher deliver one of the best outings in baseball this season... and they lost by 4 runs. Ouch, lol.

I mean, we're M's fans so we're very familiar with this, but still, that's pretty brutal.

We don't who can bunt because todays game is lazy at it and they all could do
it if wanted to.
Same for walks..The SB's part they have enough it's not all speed.
You can disagree that's fine.

Yes, a lot of bad swings at pitches in and out of the strike zone.

Wong (of course) and Ford and others.

World Series? I don't think that was every goal....for the M's, it's winning the AL West. That's their lofty goal. But they can't do that.

I still remember when 2021 was supposed to be the year that DiPoto's machinations came together. We did have a strong 2022 season, but, things have fallen apart again.
