    Chicago White Sox (8-9) @ Cleveland Indians (8-7) | 4/20 & 4/21

    Chicago White Sox (8-9) @ Cleveland Indians (8-7)
    Progressive Stadium - Cleveland, OH. | 4/20 & 4/21




    Tuesday April 20, 2021 @ 5:10pm CT on NBCSN
    Carlos Rodon, LHP (2-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. Zach Plesac, RHP (1-2, 5.27 ERA)


    White Sox: Rodon threw the 20th no hitter in White Sox franchise history against Cleveland on Wednesday, retiring the first 25 batters before hitting Roberto Perez with a slider. Rodon has allowed two hits across 14 innings with 16 strikeouts.
    Cleveland: Plesac will look to bounce back from the shortest outing of his career his last time out. At Chicago on Wednesday, Plesac lasted just 2/3 of an inning and was charged with six runs on seven hits before his departure.

    This is an interesting stretch of games where I think we are better than the Indians and the Tigers. I think we should be at worst a game over .500 after this stretch

    I feel like this is our best possible lineup, not necessarily order, that we can throw out there without Eloy.

    Giolito through August of last year had a 1.85 era with McCann catching and over 5.60 with Grandal. He threw his no-hitter to McCann. Giolito had his implosion yesterday throwing to Grandal.
    Rodon threw his no hitter to Collins, and tonight his pitch count is through the roof, throwing to Grandal.
    Just saying.

    Grandal is not good at game managing , or defense. Low BA.

    He is good at : pitch framing, drawing walks, higher obp due to that with good power.

    Im not surprised at all, Grandal's ops is lower than i would expect though.

    816
    767
    815
    848

    Sox:
    773
    589


    So, last season he was right about what you can expect, a little below what he has been doing.

    He's been horrible so far this year but we should expect a progression to the mean around an 800 ops. Above 800 and im ecstatic.

    The catcherís interference is unacceptable.
    If the bat isnít there, he is not worth the contract.

    Maybe the home run with us up by 3, will get him going. I sure hope so.

    Yeah, agreed. Not acceptable.

    I really do wish they paid McCann.

    Please stop with the Grandal can't catch Giolito, it's just wrong. Who caught Giolito's gem in the playoffs last year and his gem against Cleveland this season it was Grandal.

    Yes Grandal's catcher's interference's are bad and hopefully that goes away.

    As for his offense, he's a top 3 catcher in the game offensively, he'll be fine.

    No one is saying Grandall can't catch him.....You know very well that there are certain pitcher's that prefer certain catchers. It's been documented over time...Hell Mercedes can catch him too,and I'm sure Gio would survive.

    Grandall has benn a huge disappointment for me so far....since they signed him! The catcher's interferance is inexcusable for a veteran....What does that say about him when he had two yesterday?? I'm not even talking about the ones he boxes....Basically just knocks them down.

    He was a "need" sisgning....They haven't developed a catcher sine Ed freaking Herrmann!!!!!! I agreed with the sisgning when it happened, but it was out of "need" and he needs to play better, much better!
