Happy Michael Kopech Day! It’s Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Ray,s and the White Sox are ready to heat things up on the field.
Josh Harrison’s back, which is neat.— Michael Whitlow (@couldbelikemike) April 16, 2022
(Here’s to hoping Kopech can get into the fifth today by utilizing the offspeed more?) https://t.co/gIraLad0Bt
No rush, Burger should play 3B every day until then. https://t.co/fJgEJEkA9Q— TA7 stan account (@kevin_barnacle) April 16, 2022
Kopech got off to a rocky start, but certainly regrouped and was back to stunning hitters. That means everyone can call out SSS staffer Optimist Sox.
It would be easy to find my receipts where I doubted Kopech as a starter. You're more than welcome to bully me online with them.— SoxOptimist (@OptimistSox) April 16, 2022
Same, Sam. Same.

I call that a successful outing.
Michael Kopech went 5 IP, H, R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 0 HR, 45 of 75 pitches for strikes, with 13 swinging strikes.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) April 16, 2022
It started out wonky, but ended up encouraging. Used his curveball a lot down the stretch and touched 97 as he got going.
Let’s check in on the weather on the South Side.
But that doesn’t stop White Sox fans. Especially on Liam Hendriks bobblehead day.

A very important question was asked — what do you say, White Sox?
Very important question WST… are they doing dog day at GRate this year? Asking for a friend pic.twitter.com/fRuAJSL5Ks— The Soxside Boys 2.0 (@Soxsideboys_) April 16, 2022
Things we love to see:

Who hits Corey Kluber?— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) April 16, 2022
Jose Abreu does.
Abreu with his 6th career home run against him. 2-run shot. White Sox lead 2-1.

ROBERT 4 MVP!
Luis Robert is going to steal 40 bags this year. What an immense talent.— Scotty Flemdawg (@flemdawg97) April 16, 2022
Luis Robert league leading 5th steal today - excellent all around start to his season.— beisbol (@b3isbol) April 16, 2022
Very high praise but his compact swing with such fast hands and general movement on the field reminds me of a young Mike Trout. https://t.co/UsxquIQMC6 pic.twitter.com/y2BSu7i5s5
Luis Robert steals his 5th base in 8 games this season and is able to move to third on the Abreu fly out to center field putting the go-ahead run 90 feet away with one out for Yaz. 88’s game is so big at the top of the Sox lineup.— Patrick K. Flowers (@PatrickKFlowers) April 16, 2022
Hey, why do we love Yasmani Grandal? Take it away, Colleen.
Excellent shifting by the Rays pic.twitter.com/U3Zu0rgU4X— Millennial Sox Fan (@MillennialSox) April 16, 2022
Can’t believe you ever doubted him, Tyrone.
Is José Ruiz great now?— Josh Harrison Enjoyer (@TheTyronePalmer) April 16, 2022
The bullpen was actually really good today.

Our bobblehead model was on the mound today to close out the game.
LOCK. IT. DOWN. LIAM.— Duke Coughlin (@ThatPodGuyDuke) April 16, 2022
Hendriks showed that he is more than a pretty face and cussing closer. He can also throw to third for an important out.

Good play Hendriks— ⚾️ ... CMA, CPhT (@grayeyesdontlie) April 16, 2022
He certainly had the fans on their feet as he worked himself into a jam, and then out of the said jam. But who cares! Sox win!
Hendriks escapes the jam.— Alex Fast (@AlexFast8) April 16, 2022
