Sox Populi Postgame Podcast 18 — Well, that wasn’t fun

The White Sox fly home from Houston, buffeted by positivity — and blow it all to smithereens

After the most brutal home opener we can remember, Melissa Sage-Bollenbach, Kristina AIrdo and Brett Ballantini got together right after the final out to review a sad trombone of a 12-3 Sox pasting by the San Francisco Giants.

  • Kopech, Kopech, Kopech, he went from lights-out early 2022 to whatever ... this ... is. Funny, we don’t discuss “tipping pitches” but we do mention leaving hittable, straight meatballs over the heart of the plate
  • There was a small amount of fight in the club — was it what we needed to see after getting down so big, early?
  • Positives to be taken from this very negative game
  • How is Pedro Grifol shaping up as a skipper in this early going?
  • How do we see the first block of 12 games this season shaping up and what should the 12-game record be then for us to feel like, yeah, this team is on the right track?
