    I wish those who hate (OK, dislike, didn't want to sign, etc) would actually see him in action at such event. They'd see how special it is to have him in our clubhouse.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Three absolutely incredible beers. Tripel Karmeliet and La Fin are probably in my top 5. Not a huge fan of goose island beers. However, I had a few of their Next Coast IPAs at a bulls game and it was much better than their typical beers. I was pleasantly surprised. I've been back on an Apex Predator binge lately. Not a fan of most sours, but Apex Predator (technically a farmhouse ale) has the perfect hint of sourness for me. Very quality beer. That said, in a Revolution fanboy through and through. Can never go wrong with Anti-hero. A little crazy is their seasonal Belgian IPA. One of my favorites. We have a beer tasting event during a Christmas party at work. An employee has a brother that is a brewery at Rev. He brought in about 15 different rare beers of theirs, all 10%+. It was incredible.

    Agreed, all around. There are so many better beers. You may need to spend a few bucks more but it’s worth it. Sours are hugely popular these days. I love Gose’s and Berliner’s, especially in the summer. And you’re right on Cross of Gold. I’m a hop head and tend to be biased. 🤑

    Steve Stone Hinting At Another Move: Not Puig / Castellanos

    The lineup & rotation are 100% set. The bullpen has at least five locks in Colome, Bummer, Herrera, Cishek, & Fry and two more guys with very high likelihood’s of making the OD roster in Marshall & Cordero. They could add a long-man but it seems pretty apparent they are looking to add bench depth. I do like Mendick, but I wouldn’t be against adding two veteran bench pieces. We are definitely lacking both OF depth and left-side infield depth (especially in the event of an injury). That being said, I only expect one addition and could see it being Yolmer unfortunately.

    Yep. Goose Island is good at making mediocre beers. Outside of Bourbon Cty, and frankly Rev is kicking BCty's ass right now. If anyone is looking for a year-round local to replace honkers there's WAY better offerings from Rev, Pipeworks, and Half Acre Lots of sours beyond the Belgians. Upland is getting good distro and check out Off Color if you haven't. They make great Gose's and Berliner Weisse's. For you lager folks, I'd skip Cross of Gold. It's a more hoppy American lager. Look to Metropolitan as they're bucking the trend and their whole lineup is lagers. And even more so look at Dovetail. Dovetail's helles lager is killer.

  13. I think Grandal will have a greater impact on the White Sox than Donaldson will on the Twins. But not for your reasons. Grandal was a 2.5 War last year and a career 2 War. Donaldson was a 6 War last year and a career 5. Certainly Grandal is younger but as a catcher the difference may be negated by wear and tear. I think Grandal could have a major impact on our young pitchers which won't be reflected in his War but will be in theirs Just a veteran presence as well as a catcher who can keep them steady. The other major factor is he adds a LH bat to a lineup that desperately needed one.

    Sours are great and they are becoming more and more popular. Many microbrews are brewing them now. But I’m one or two and done with them. They destroy my taste buds. And New England style is definitely still hoppy but not all about the insane IBUs of the original dank, piney IPA style. It’s more juicy and tropical.

    Just Because The Twins signed Donaldson.......

    The Sox are going to beat the Twins with pitching; it may not be this year, but it should be soon enough.

    Just Because The Twins signed Donaldson.......

    I'm ready to just enjoy what we have. There is too much for us to be excited about to waste our attention looking at other teams. I will leave that to the front office.
  18. I'm fine with this. Yeah he improves them for now. But he's been injury prone...and this has a high probability of being a bad contract at some point. Before long, he could help the Sox cement their hold on this division when he ties up the Twins payroll.
  19. I'd absolutely hate for him to take away Mendick at bats.

    In terms of the Belgian styles I’d agree, but it’s hard to argue they don’t take chances with Bourbon County every year. The variants are getting stranger and stranger (and the reviews are getting worse, lol).
  21. To be clear, I was good with offering and him accepting the QO. The extension is the part I didn't like.
  22. No, I don't think it really does. Because of the pitching. Like I said in my post. Where did the Twins improve their pitching? We have plenty of "ifs" in ours, I know. But with what we've added to the pitching and what we have potentially coming back from injury... But with or without Donaldson, the Twins can hit. But now so can we. It WILL be the pitching that decides things.
  23. Exactly! That was my point when I started this post! Thank you!
  24. He not only improves their lineup but their infield defense just got alot stronger as well. Personally, I'm going to miss watching Sano and his lack of range and stone hands at 3B.

    Those arent bad. My preference is to stay below 25 IBU. I prefer the wheats and sours. Too many of the microbreweries lean towards hoppy, hoppier and hoppiest for their brews. It's tough to find ones that dont do that.
