Chicago White Sox clinch winning season, plus current playoff field
"Turn your head because I certainly did over the past couple of days maybe I got washed up at a bit of college football, the NFL return and but I didn't realize the Chicago White Sox. We're now in first place in the American league central after going eight and two in their last ten games they are. Let's see a game up on the Minnesota twins who have figured things out and are now in second place in that. Leaves the Cleveland Indians losers of six straight all the way down to third place at twenty and twenty one and four and a half games out. So so the Indians have gone from first place in the division arguably the team to beat in the American League two. Now, a wildcard team outside of the top two in the division and four and a half games out just that quickly I mean, don't you know six in a row and when the white sox are winning four that's at least. Four Games in the last four days and with a deficit of four and a half, it's gone from a half a game to four and a half year. By the time Friday rolled around you have the Detroit Tigers at twenty and twenty six, and then the Kansas City royals at twenty and twenty eight. Neither of them are atrocious baseball teams, which honestly is a bit better than I had anticipated for both of them but neither of them are going to be infecting the playoff picture with their presence. Where do we go here? The Chicago White SOx thirty and sixteen winners of four, straight eight and two in their last ten they swept the Tigers this past weekend. Let's take a look at their scheduled down the stretch here. See who they have coming up. They have four with the Minnesota twins who I just spoke about being a game back. So this'll be a fantastic series between the white. SOX and the twins it'll be in Minnesota Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday some fantastic pitching matchups in those. Then they travel to Cincinnati to Cleveland and retell her for return home ver-. CHICAGO. So the white sox tough schedule down the stretch with clubs over five hundred and then the reds mixed in there. So we'll see if they can continue to play quality baseball they continue to be led by Jose Abreu. He's crushing the Baseball fifteen home runs. Forty eight RB is Tim Anderson is currently your Major League leader. In batting average, he'd be your batting champion at three, sixty two. If he qualifies in Thirty six games, one, hundred, fifty, two are bats I think he has just qualified fine when it comes to that statistic on the pitching side of things Lucas g Alito. Continues to pitch well, Dallas Kaikal not a lot of people talking about it but six in two two, one, nine era talk about a successful year Then you got mad foster coming out of the bullpen with a one three, one era so Chicago a well rounded team they were my surprise bic in the American league at least they got the memo because. My Cincinnati reds on the other side will get to them but they still haven't figured things out sell but hey, one or two in regards to surprise picks. So the summer I'll take that absolutely. Did I think they'd be a first place team I didn't think the white sox will be a first place team but I certainly thought they were good enough to. Make the wild card and make the playoffs. Now we're talking standard one, sixty, two, five teams but yeah, certainly a pleasant surprise on the south side of the windy city.

"But until then Ray Hayworth had the longest streak of of errorless. Games in Seoul. Yeah. So he was tremendous but but anyway so that this victory you know they say like this was just such a huge thing because what had happened was general crowder came in the the next day. And one, and then the Tigers beat. The Tigers beat the Yankees. For crowder start the your thing is the next day or the at least probably the next day if not the day after that but it was the very next game on crowder the Tigers in behind general crowder win the next game they moved into a tie with the Yankees for first place and again that was twenty third. Okay. So you see the evolution you're so may thirtieth fifth-placed June twentieth fourth-place. They're starting to escalate a little bit June thirtieth to July seventh ten game winning streak with Mickey Cochran. You know with that Mickey Cochrane Home Run in July twenty third VIC Sorrell in this game. The crowd of the very next day the Tigers move into a tie with the Yankees and they never looked back. They never looked back. They just kept on winning in the in they. They edged out for the for the dependent and saw the September twenty first they when they clinched the pennant that year well. How many games do they have left? September September twenty twenty I I have to look at it. Yeah. Yeah. I. Like this September. So there was like two months left. Wow and they played great the rest of the season. So that's that's early in the season AVIC cinched up. For the the the September. Twenty first, the world series was not. It's not that early well, a little bit actually because he had the world series I think it was October third. Yeah. Was the beginning of the world's actor we're I third. So it was yeah. No, it was like nine days. So at least a week but but. But they crush. The season they just were killing everybody, and in fact, they went on a losing streak at the end of the year I think it was an eight game losing streak at the end of the year. Which people were like, Oh man, are they gonNA. have are they going to be able to? Because the worst thing for them was that they went on eight-game somewhere like a seven or eight game losing streak at the end of the year. In the COBBS. Went on a twenty one game winning streak to propel themselves into the thirty five world series. So going into that world series that tighten the cubs were the hottest team in baseball in the Tigers were the coldest team. Eight games in a row so. So. It was eight maybe it's eight out of nine, but it was it was it was ugly little losing streak that they had to finish off their year but But yeah, you can see you can just kind of see the dynamic in of the season how they how they started. Now there's a couple of these really key moments probably a million other ones to, of course There's one more little element to regards to the importance we talked about on a previous show about just the you know the ball Hank Greenberg yeah and just this like the next Babe Ruth and figure in this year on. Top of the POPs with everything everything he's one of the greatest hitters of all time. He's one of the greatest of all time and we mentioned so nineteen thirty, three tight grammar just trying to get a starting job. I mean thirty three I mean. He was just trying to give me he he actually went to Frank Naven and says either play me or trade me or something because I wanna play he's playing on Belle, isle with kids on. Sandlot ball just to stay in game shape because he was never playing and so. It's thirty. Thirty, four, forty. So he wins the job really at the end of nineteen thirty three plays well enough to win the job going into thirty four and it's thirty four that he breaks out and becomes one of the great hitters all baseball, and that helps to propel the Tigers to the to the series. And then in thirty five, Greenberg is on a whole `nother level is literally on a whole `nother level. I mean he is like I'm talking about he's not just on another level for the Tigers he's on another level for all Major League Baseball. I mean just have great little fact here that I think is going to put into context just how big he was because we mentioned the Tigers were were you know start off bad in the beginning of the season but It could have been way worse without Hang Greenburg. Okay. He was the he was literally the only person like one of the only. I mean he was the catalyst that gave them. What wins they did get in the beginning. He carried them almost by himself well, through the first part of the season and. So just to give you an idea of how how, how big he was. You know the the the statistic of runs batted you know runs batted in rb is It's so by the All Star game which I duNNo. If you WANNA look up the data the All Star game 'cause I don't have the time my head but by the all star Game Hank Greenberg had hundred and ten rb is okay. Like All Star game is halfway point of the season generally. Generally speaking. So he one hundred and ten rb is by the all. Star. Game Okay it just to give you a frame of reference. Lou Gehrig what by the time, the season finished hungry Murray finished the year with one hundred seventy RBI hand Greenburg. Okay. But just to put into context, how many that is the number two player in baseball that year head was Lou Gehrig and he had one hundred and Nineteen Rbi's for the season. That was that was July eighth in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, eight, three, go. Yeah. So so anyways by July, eighth on the by the. Looking at my notes here, that's the Tigers just had that ten game wins. Yeah. By July eight Han and Greenberg got one hundred and ten RBI. Lou Gehrig for the full season.

"Okay. But anyways. Yeah. Two, three games three or four games. Here's that'll that'll swing that'll swing big time. Yeah. So anyway, so going to maybe they played a four game series, but but the idea is the last three games is what we want to talk about. Okay It's so anyways, there was a there was a double header. Okay. In the first game of the doubleheader school by role loses to the Yankees seven to five the Tigers at this moment are. Already equate to a game and a half back of the Yankees have to do the math owner, but I'll get to a more precise measurement here in a second anyways the Tigers are the first close. The titles are in second place just behind the Yankees okay. So. anyways school borough loses the first game seven to five. Okay exactly. You know the mighty schoolboy loses this this first game and then the Tigers like the way that the pitchers had been being used every day and all this stuff they literally had nobody they literally had no what it. So this is the and you have to understand this double header was you know this is key because the Tigers lose three in a row they drop down in the standings. Three, and the lose three. So propelled makes it even more difficult. So at this particular doubleheader, there was sixty six thousand fans only for this double header six thousand, which shows you sort of the magnitude send out the scientists vic. Old Vic. Aren't feeling. There's going poop themselves anyway. Hey. How you doing your arm feel and everybody's like. You want to get it started. Yeah. Like do you need you know what the plan was was just they? They needed somebody to cover. They they like he wasn't like Victor. Star he was a reliever he would just you know he was a pitcher and we needed when you could see he did really didn't have that many games pitch that year. On. You know. So you know they they need Vic Sorrell I vic Sorrell. The need to step up how does vicks and he do. We'll tell you never gonNA have some. So anyway. So, victims end, and let me just make sure I get the score. Yeah. I got the notes written on here. So it comes in and the Tigers win three to one. Vic pitches a jam. Non like one of the most important and Bass Games of his life really right and so. In. So Three pitchers in one of the one of the great stories to is Ray Hayworth who was the backup catcher he was tremendous like can we talk about? Ray? Hayworth. In fact when they were making trade when they were breaking when they were buying Mickey Cochrane the as wanted them to the Tigers of throwing Ray Hayworth part of the deal and the Tigers Refuse Nice they wouldn't even power here with railroads was a backup catcher, but he was in elite defensive player. He was a solid offense hitter, but he was elite defender in Seoul in Seoul. So he played a lot I mean Ray Hayworth wasn't allowed. So Mickey Cochrane a lot of times Mickey would you know he would because catchers take a lot of beatings? You know they take a beating all year long and. So anyways. So Mickey, which felt comfortable knowing that he could take a game off in that Ray Hayworth would would be pip. It'd be a great catcher for the game and then make us himself as a pinch hitter in in for the increasingly important moments of games to get those, he may have got to check my records, but he may have even pitch hit himself in that ninth inning game that talk about what that home run in fact I think he did was he pinch hey, brought himself off the bench because he's the manager he gets to decide when they when he uses himself when. I got this Fella's exactly. To Pinch, hit for eight. Incredibly important. So having Ray Hayworth, let them do that anyways. Ray Hayworth was was a because he ray Hayworth had been with the team as long as Vic Sorrell it had been at least the. Late twenties and so he was great friends with Vic and he mentioned in the quote at the end on their keep talking about where it's like their favorite moments that he says at the end of that of that game in the ninth inning that there is a potentially a runabout to score in the ninth inning on Vic Sorrell in that he like literally muscled the guy that. You know the guy came around third in back. Then you catcher could like football block into somebody to keep them from touching the plate and so he knew that the ball the ball is running a little bit late in that he gave this guy or the shove caught ball tagged him out in preserve the victory he's he got a black eye as a result he had a Black eye from hitting this guy so. Six foot tall hundred and eighty pounds ray Hayworth yeah. Here, with US Great. He's an ASS. He went in there. It was I again. I gotTA check the exact number but I believe it was one hundred it was at least one hundred straight games it might have been one three or something but he went like one hundred straight games without without making an air which for that's That's incredible broken. That streak was not broken until Yogi? Berra. Broke was a tremendous pitcher for the Yankees in the nineteen fifties. Until Yogi bear broke it..

"Of the season in three of the Tigers? Say That was it when Mickey hit that home run one guy says that did that home run did things to me that I haven't experienced since I was a child. That was it that with its extra innings? Pushes exploration to to win the game and they beat Mel harder who was one of the great pitchers user. One of the great pitchers in the nineteen. Thirties. So. What what? was there somebody else who was a standout? Not necessarily one of the top stars was there somebody else was a stand down next thing next point You read my car. The Kids Actually was hoping to get to this guy do because it's sort of like just. Another mentioned by these players at the end of the year was that again, the the is a great article 'cause they they ask all these different players, what was your favorite moment of the season in? So bunch of and Picky Cochran for that home run he hit in an several more picked There's a guy named Vic Sorrell okay. And this is the name of never gets any mention and he didn't get any hardly any mention in one, thousand, nine, hundred five, which is sort of the point of this player. His name is visceral. Okay. So Vic, Sorrell, he's like you know the you know. You have. When. You're talking thirty four, thirty, five tigers. You've got schoolboy roll like the picturesque athletes six, foot, four, six foot whatever he was. Great Looking. Guy Hero to the children you know ace of Eight. You know one of the as we've talked about school boy role you got Hank Greenberg. You know this guy is just setting the world on fire. He's like the next Babe Ruth tight figure for the Tigers Mickey. Cochran all these big names right. But then you got vic sorrell he's like Vic Sorrell he's he's got he wears round glasses right? He's not really doesn't really look like an athlete. You know he's kind of like a nerd man look at them when you see a picture Vic Sorrell. He you know he doesn't really take the you know he's just doesn't need us like one of these. You know these ball players that would be some kind of a cover of a magazine scientists. Say exactly he's like Tom. Bespectacled van. So, anyways Vicks ben with the Tigers since one thousand nine hundred, twenty, eight So when we talk about, you know we've said it'd be for the tires make Cochran got they're either too young or they were too old vic Sorrell was in the category a tool he'd been with the Tigers since nineteen twenty eight, he had an incredibly mediocre. Career you know nearly two wins one, hundred, one losses like, yeah. He was leading up to that point. You can see for yourself you're looking at era earn on average pitcher you anything in the three point six, three point five, three point six. That's s really good. You know what I mean gives up three and a half runs a game basically. Per Nine innings and then sold but when you're but with Vic Sorrell, you can see his era is like four or four point five five. You know like this guy. You know he's the type of pitcher that he was good enough to like eat up innings. You can put them out there. You knew we pitched nine innings sometimes you would give up three or four sometimes you would give up six or seven. Just the kind of guy that. Just. You know he's a pitcher. He's a pitcher. You know he's going to get some out whatever you know he's GonNa be out there but he is no superstardom around him at all like this guy that they put in whenever so anyways. So nine, hundred, thirty, five. Visceral like again, Tommy Bridges Schoolboy Rowe elden Oskar General crowder we talked about his this incredible magic seasonal from thirty four and then he's also great thirty five again. And then VIC soils over in the corner the other he's just he's a guy they throw in whenever they need Ella. This week. Exactly. Everything need them for something you really to pick up some innings they put vicks soil in. So. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, you know that's the situation with Vick. You know there's all this incredible excitement on the tires and then the vix he's part of the team still he's got a baseball card off there. So but anyway, so it. But for victim this season, the sort of the sad thing about Vic Sorrell was that his daughter had this illness and I I have it in the book somewhere I'm not sure what the illness was I escapes me what what, her, what the actually but it was something that sort of carried on over the course of the season in. So he was really so he would be at. A game, and then like what he had had a day off, he would be at home trying to you know dealing with helping his daughter to be with his daughter and stuff. So he's having kind of a you know not only you know just a rough personal season as well. So anyways. So the so the date is July twenty third as we already mentioned June thirtieth June seventh tekkers on a ten game win streak and then so now we're talking July twenty third. Okay. So the tigers are just a shade behind the Yankees. Okay. They're just like they're they're. So they're going into the Yankee Stadium and they have a three game series..

"It's sort of a different Pete Fox nine, hundred, ninety five. It's a different outfielder, nineteen, thirty, five BC. Yeah. So you know this, you know there's there's other elements to like. You know we talked about schoolboy last share. Yeah I nineteen thirty, five schoolboy role was a totally different pitcher in thirty four. He was unstoppable. He was unhittable. They know what? He was the superstar of all baseball. He had this huge romance with Edna skinner we talked about but but in nineteen thirty, five, he he had married Edna skinner in the in the off season they'd had a child and in little lynnwood little boy little lynnwood and he he was sick and there's you know there's there's there's no no. It's really my speculation and I speculated in the book The the idea that that the sickness of his newborn son is what led him to his early season struggles and he struggled terribly in nineteen thirty five. Terribly we were talking about this talking about this being the great expectations and then the season kicks off. And they're struggling. Row, and the team overall. Exactly. That's so so you have scuba rose a large part of it because you know here's he's one of their You Know L. Knocker says that Tommy Bridges was the ace of the team at schoolboy himself. We're like this. You know that we were the next as we were like the secondary because because a lot of you would actually say the school by Roy was like the ace but. You're splitting hairs but but you know they the everybody was such a high regard. For Tommy, bridges that they all like he's a he was still surly young. He was twenty seven years old and nineteen, thirty four in school boy L. Knock Orion their twenty three twenty, four year old area in so but anyways but schoolboy was an incredibly important figure on that team. As a pitcher it I mean it was like you know that you had in this really had to aces overall intensive purposes with Tommy Bridges and Schoolboy Rowe two aces in with one of them bridge was okay in thirty five from the very beginning but what schoolboy role was horrible and so. The first P- got relegated to the bullpen in. The context of the bullpen. Is that is the bullpen as sort of like the the guys that come in and fill that pitch at the end of games whenever they need an ending or two or especially back in this era when the pitcher's basically pitched every game all game in the only reason they came out if they were hurt or if they were playing bad and that's when they brought in the bullpen. Yeah, it was. Kind of like a lot of times it would you know the the the games that both these really con- relievers pitch that were important. But for the Star for schoolboy. Rowe the ACO one of the great pitchers in all of baseball to be coming out of the bullpen was a tremendous indignant that just shows you how bad he was like how they could not pitch him the start the you know. It was a brief moment that they're bringing i. wasn't like he was relegated there for half the season or something it was i. think it was only a couple of games but but any. But in either case, he started off the year In, in a tough way, he was not good in. So in a there's a great article in the end of the second book that There's no way to read on here would take up the whole show. It's. Probably, a twenty minute read but but anyways were shaver actually goes through the entire season. He doesn't fantastic job of narrating the he. Calls it. The that says Cochran is the captain of the ship that rolled over these stormy seas because it because it was just up and down up and down actually have a sort of a no of the timelines idea. Yeah. So So the should've done with the data the first the first day, the season started, but it was. Just like a lot of season's early late March early, April But by May thirtieth you know a month and a half two months of the season they're in fifth place the Tigers are in fifth place. By June twentieth, the team is in fourth. She's moved up a little bit in their in fourth place. So you're talking about you know the maybe third of the season's over and they're still in fourth place in Seoul the You know the main criticism of the nineteen, thirty, four tigers because they had come out of the you know they because they had played like such worldbeaters after being so terrible virtually the same team that there are people are saying they got lucky than they tapped. Lucky they had a lot of momentum on they avoided injuries. You know there was sort of a fluke and so that was the national media narrative in Seoul the has starting off the season in such a rough spot. It seemed to vindicate all the critics I mean vindicated they're all saying yeah. This is the Tigers really were a flash in the PAN. was there appoint that was a turning point in thirty five once more of them sink man I got it right here start. Turning point. What was the turning point seventy five. So so you have So so from June thirtieth to July seventh the Tigers go on a ten game win streak that helps. but then, but this was, but I actually have A. Couple of quotes at the end of the book where they actually say the were Bud shaver. The one quote just mentioned you with a stormy seas story. He actually says the fourth of July was the turning point the fourth of July because in that game the Tigers are planning to get the predators are playing against the The Tigers have as I just mentioned June thirtieth to July seventh year on a ten game win streak. So this. Would have been there there's maybe six game in a row that they you know if you know they won ten but at this point, they really won four or five in a row. So they're playing against Cleveland Indians, they're planning Cleveland Indians and the Tigers are down to four in the ninth inning with two hour. Okay. In Mickey Cochrane comes up to the plate drills a home run to tie it. Okay. In the Tigers, go on to win in the eleventh inning. Extends that winning streak from five or six whatever was at that point seven games and then they win three more scenes so that ten game. So that's when they say that you know they could've it could've been a four game winning streak where they lost one and then the Tigers those stormy ship keeps going up and download the but the winning of that game and then the. Winning of three middle they all said in the in the even at the book, there's another quote I have where they're actually asking the Tigers what was your favorite moment of the season in three of the Tigers? Say That was it when Mickey hit that home run one guy says that did that home run did things to me that I haven't experienced since I was a child. That was it that with its extra innings?

"So what does that mean? What do you have to do in order to maintain home field advantage? Well, you don't what the play, a seventy percent clip the rest of the way. So maybe they do kind of relaxed a little bit, take that foot off the gas some. But of course they've won six in a row, so they're not really showing any signs of doing that. But I think right now, you know, and I continue to handicap from a sabermetrics standpoint, and I did that in yesterday's card, but there were a couple of things that maybe I didn't consider for many more intangible standpoint, so that gray area that is uncomfortable for me when it. Comes to major league baseball because I am somebody who likes to use the data likes to use the numbers and the predictive value that it provides the Detroit Tigers are an example Detroit Tigers for taking on the angels. Yesterday high may Berea on the mound for the angels. The angels are fade team to me here in the second half. I don't like anything about the angels. They've fallen seven and a half behind Seattle, ten and a half behind Oakland already fifteen and a half out the division this a team, but no playoff aspirations. They traded in Kinzler. They lost that art for the year. Shohei Ohtani can't pitch. Garrett Richards is hurt. Again, you and they've got some guys in the Andrew Heaney and Tyler Skaggs who are both recent Tommy John guys who you know are pitching a full season for the first time in a while. So the angels are a big time fade team to me. Then you look at Berea who's got that lower ERA higher excerpts scenario. And I'm thinking to myself, okay, you know, maybe this is the spot where Burris regression does show up. I thought it was gonna show up against the Indians. The other night they scored three runs early and then kind of didn't do. Do anything the rest of the way. But what happened was, I got tunnel vision with that game. I blind myself to the problems at the Detroit Tigers are having who by the way, since the all-star break are far and away and it's not even close, take my word for it. They're far and away the worst offensive team in major league baseball since the all star break. And again, it's not close there about sixty percent below league average. I think when I looked this morning since the all star break, so they have been awful. And when you're looking for regression to come from a pitcher, the thing is you need the offense to help out as well. You need the Detroit Tigers in that situation to help out. And I didn't take the time to look at just how bad the Tigers have been offensively here of late this team. It's now twenty one games under five hundred. They've been absolutely atrocious in the second half, they've dropped twenty of their last thirty. They're just not playing good this ball right now and not only that they're getting bought out and a lot of games too. So not just the fact that their offense. It's been terrible, but also that was a day game. It getaway day game after a long road trip on the west coast when they've not been playing well. So that was a mistake that I made. And I've been handicapping baseball for a long time. I've been breaking down this game from Serra metric standpoint for over a decade now, and yet I still missed something and it's one of those humbling things that you have to come to terms with those handicapper. We're no matter how long you've done this. They're going to be times where you do maybe get tunnel vision where you do maybe get a little bit careless with something and then wind up losing money as a result of it. And that was one of those things for me with the Tigers where you'll Blaine Hardee's having a decent season fly ball pitcher at angel stadium thought, okay, maybe this is a decent spot for him. Oh, look, Berea. Here's this regression candidate didn't look at how bad the Tigers offense has been considered, but didn't, you know, fully utilize the fact that the Tigers were playing this getaway day..
