We’re coming down the stretch!
Full disclosure, the 2022 White Sox have broken me:
Anyone else just kinda ready for the Sox season to be over with? If they win, cool. If they lose, cool. Whatever, I am just emotionally exhausted from the constant barrage of non-baseball garbage they create.— White Sox Twitt3r VII: Remake (@SoxTwitt3r) September 16, 2022
Garbage like this, needing to be reported.
As expected, Tony La Russa not here in Detroit for series with Tigers.— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) September 16, 2022
Anyway, let’s do that baseball!

The term “fan” is derived from fanatic — but this guy behind the plate is just a tool
Public Enemy No. 1:
Manning has given up two hits in five innings, and we’re having flashbacks to August.
Mesmerised by a mediocre Righty? What’s new.— Ryiin (@rfoto) September 17, 2022
Checkered shirt guy got the 2022 Tigers playoff hopes treatment.
Bold strategy, let’s see if it pays off.

Upgraded to kindly, but not nicely, asking.

Can we guess which one is not enjoying the ride?
Steve Stone "Lucas Giolito pitched well."— Al (@baseballgalal) September 17, 2022
Me: "That outing by Lucas was gross."
Jimmy Lambert has been great this season, but you may remember him better from his previous work:
He just had a huge strike out to get the Sox out of a jam!— White Sox Twitt3r VII: Remake (@SoxTwitt3r) September 17, 2022
We’re no longer asking nicely, or kindly.
Even if you could look into the future, there is no guarantee you will like what you see:
Is that ... is that bad?
Dude this a must win and we don’t have a fucking run— White Sox Fan Club (@WhiteSoxFanClu8) September 17, 2022
Well, I have some good news and some bad news ... 2-0, into the seventh.
To lose 1-0 to the Tigers, after the game they had yesterday. This is peak 2022 #WhiteSox— Sir Thomas Sox (@SirThomasSox) September 17, 2022
Sometimes it’s your night, and sometimes you get shut down by [checks notes] Matt Manning?

Final line: 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. 87 pitches, 59 strikes. He threw 56 fastballs and 26 sliders. Nine swings and misses.
Well, this may as well happen.
Alternatively: frustrating infuriation.
Torkelson catches a pop up and almost dies, Leury does the human thing and helps keep him from a nasty fall, which leads to a strange condemnation from Len Kasper:
I disagree with Len there. You have to be a human when you see someone falling over a railing headfirst— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) September 17, 2022
Karma is real, and it’s 2-2.
Meanwhile, in Cleveland ...

Strike-em-out/throw-em-out at home on a fortuitous bounce back towards the mound, double play. Please score?

Now and forever. Reynaldo in for the ninth to force extra innings.

Whether you want it, or not!
Bonus baseball— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 17, 2022
Tigers strike out the side against the Sox in the 10th inning, of a must-win game, with a free runner on second base.
Booooooooooooo— Unprotected_Sox (@SoxUnprotected) September 17, 2022
Liam muffs the throw on a sacrifice bunt. First and third, no outs. Not ideal.
Oh shoot oh heck oh shoot oh heck— kee (@Keelin_12ft) September 17, 2022
Sox lose to Detroit, 3-2. Four games back of Cleveland.
Five in the loss column.
But then again, it’s the 2022 White Sox.
Fucking good for nothing Chicago White Sox.— Tweet Sox (@WriteSox) September 17, 2022
