Some fans were hopeful.
I look to you— Luis Robert’s Butt Cheeks (@CheesySox) May 19, 2022
My sweet father Vince
To plug the leak
The royals lineup, please mince
Gordon keeps telling me
I need to hold my load
But if we don’t win this game
My will to live will explode
Sox by a million ❤️ ❤️
Some were stern.
At some point, someone has to do something to wake this team up. Someone needs to be held accountable, even if they aren't necessarily the one to blame.— Jordan Lazowski (@jlazowski14) May 19, 2022
This team looks lifeless and complacent. They need a shake up.
Some longed for simpler times.

And some wrestled with the complexity of loving something terrible.

The game didn’t start great. The Royals jumped out to an early lead against Vince Velasquez, and Sox fans flocked to Twitter for their usual sackcloth-and-ash routine.
Why am I watching this game? Why can't I learn to love myself?— Rudy - (@CoveysBurner) May 19, 2022

Quit being a boob.
Gavin sheets is such booty it’s unreal— Cary (@ThatbasebaIIfan) May 19, 2022
Slowly but surely, the White Sox offense began to show some signs of life.
Are we, dare I say…..hitting?— Nick (@FW_IN_SoxFan) May 19, 2022
And — perhaps more surprisingly — patience.

Finally, the White Sox finally broke it open, with two players in particular making huge contributions.
The White Sox offense seems to mostly be, “Tim Anderson, sometimes Luis Robert, and maybe somebody else will show up on a given day, I guess.”— Trooper Galactus (@TrooperGalactus) May 19, 2022
Tim sat out of game two of the double header bc his back hurts from carrying this god damn team— Ali White (@aliwhitesox) May 19, 2022
As much as I am so mad at the White Sox, Luis Robert is that guy and I love him— Kyle McMahon (@kyyle23) May 19, 2022
GET THE SCIENTISTS WORKING ON THE PANTERA CLONING TECHNOLOGY IMMEDIATELY!
Can we clone Luis Robert? Do we have the technology?— Ethan Katz’s Pen (@WhiteSoxAlways) May 19, 2022
Seven runs? In this economy?
13 hits, 5 walks, 7 runs….what an offensive explosion by Frank Menechino!!— Patrick Nolan (@SoxMach_pnoles) May 19, 2022
7 runs and 14 hits. So… everything is fine, now. Right???? pic.twitter.com/HRu2078Mpf— FitzMagic (SoxFanWingMan) (@CheapSeats411) May 19, 2022
We’re not saying this was why, but we’re also not not saying that.
Leury out of the lineup and we score 7 runs?— Rick Hahn’s Burner (@RickHahnBurner) May 19, 2022
The Sox will now face a big test as they travel to the Bronx to take on the New York Yankees. Dear baseball gods, please let the White Sox win at least one of those games.
