I say literally because this is the first 8-5 triple play in Major League Baseball history. The White Sox are finding new ways to not just lose, but make negative headlines. I’m so sick of this fucking organization shooting themselves in the foot, not just on the field, which happens all too regularly in their “competitive window”, but also on the PR front.
Let’s list the bullshit from top to bottom:
1. Engel should have run for Sheets immediately after reaching 1B. Had he been caught off guard, he would have been a 3B on Moncada’s single. This mess is on Tony
2. Moncada did everything to the point where he completely screwed up by following Engel instead of following the ball and listening to McEwing
3. Engel completely crushed his leg. I have never seen anything like it. He admitted it too. If he had pulled off that move in a Freshman B game I was coaching, I would have been at a loss for words, let alone watch it happen in an MLB game.
4. Idk if McEwing or Boston were directing Yo and Engel where to go and where to go, but if they weren’t, they screwed up too. It would be a borderline dismissable offense and McEwing had a shitty year as a 3B coach himself. He’s the southern version of Wavin’ Wendell Kim (RIP in peace)
Engel screwed up the whole room. He deserves 100% of the blame. Moncada, TLR and others also screwed up. Not as bad, but bad enough to set off the chain reaction of embarrassing acts in that 10 second period that I have to stop seeing my band of brothers again and stop studying for my K-Flay interview that I had in a few minutes.
This team stinks. A major overhaul is needed. They can still win the division because it’s completely farcical, but that’s not it. About 10 parts need to be removed and replaced. It kills my soul.
Oh and Robert must stop swinging to fuck it all
