    Some side effects are paranoia, hallucinations, and psychosis. So we may not be able to tell if it is affecting him.

    When people respond to Greg then the rest of us get his germs.

    Get a new hobby @greg775 I recently took up wood working and it’s been very fulfilling, time consuming, involved, therapeutic, and will result in products that’ll be passed on to my son. ... or just keep stirring around my love. 😆

    I've had a tough time confirming anything during this pandemic. The White Sox have heavy rumored interest in Cespedes though. Today, Oscar Colas signed with Alex Cotto, the same agent that represents Norge Vera and Yoan Moncada. I'm not sure if it means anything but it's something to watch.

    I can't believe this is still a thing. This thread, which was once a refuge from the craziness and conspiracies on basically any other public forum, has gotten hard to read ever since more people started taking Greg's bait and the False Equivalence Army came out of the woodwork... but even then, I can't believe that the latter is still arguing for that drug even after it was revealed weeks ago that the whole thing was just another profit scheme masquerading as health care (obviously, in addition to the drug not even working)

    I have come to the conclusion that people who refuse to wears masks don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves.

    i would like the administration here at soxtalk to start gaslighting us as well "the boards were down for an hour" "no, they weren't" -- "i don't trust the sox pitching, they are awful" "of all the people pitching for the sox, they are turning in the best performance" -- "greg keeps talking in the third person" "we are fairly sure that he is freely intermixing stories of another friend named greg"

    Have you lived in this country for long? Have you been sleeping through all the horrible things we have been doing to each other for the past few hundred years?

    Beat me to it. I feel like that is the part that most people that are protesting and refusing to wear a mask don't understand. It was never to protect you...it is to protect the people you interact with in case you are someone that is asymptomatic. All these Karen idiots refusing to wear masks at stores in public places just blow my mind. It is called PUBLIC health....meaning for the general PUBLIC. What you do in your own house is your own business but when you are in PUBLIC you should follow PUBLIC guidelines.

    At this point, there really is good DNA evidence that this is untrue. The strains that circulated in Wuhan did arrive in Seattle and California by January-February, but although they spread a little there weren't explosions. The infections in the US are dominated by one strain that entered through New York - after that same strain blew up in Italy. There's a trackable mutation in the spike proteins that is present in the NYC arrivals and absent from the California/Washington arrivals, and right now the whole country is dominated by the Italian version. It's even more prevalent in California and Washington today than the original strains were. Something like 80% of the infections come from 20% of the infected individuals. If you only have a handful of people sick and they stay home, you don't have to have a whole office get sick, so it doesn't have to explode from a single case. Even if there were early arrivals in Washington and California, they didn't spread widely or trigger substantial numbers of cases. The New York cases were the ones that exploded and spread, and those cases were imported from Italy in February. Whether that means the Italian strain is actually more contagious than the original Chinese strains - one paper has proposed that, but that is still being worked on.

    Yes, he ignored the virus because he was told the stock market would be spooked. He blamed the previous administration for not having tests. Even though Obama was supposed to know Covid 19 was happening 3 years after he left office, why didn't the Trump administration prepare for a pandemic? They were left a playbook, which they ignored. I already said it was going to be bad under anyone, just not this bad. He was wrong, wrong, wrong, wouldn't come up with a National response, made the states compete for supplies, like it was The Apprentice, Governors edition, which cost time and money, and took zero responsibility. His own words. Golf too much? I didn't say that, he said Obama did. He golfs more than Obama and makes money when he does. But who cares about conflicts of interest. If Trump can dish it out, and all you have to do is see a really or look at his twitter, he should be able to take it. World's biggest victim. You really don't have to be a democrat to see he messed up, bigly. Almost every single Republican politician who isn't afraid of him has pointed it out.

    This is just wrong and ignorant. The world doesn't need it to "end". The world needs scientifically developed immunity and that comes in the form of a vaccine not this "herd" concept where millions and millions of human beings are infected.

    No, you don’t like being told what to do, and you enjoy the “freedoms” that come with living in the United States. The President from that start declared very early that he wasn’t taking responsibly for any of this, and he was leaving it in the hands of the governors. That can’t be disputed. He put it in their hands. To me, that was gigantic mistake. But when faced with a real crisis, Donald’s true “leadership” abilities were shown off to the entire world. “Not my problem” Because of that, you had 50 governors making decisions for their own state, obviously with very different agendas and political motives. All the while domestic travel was never stopped or halted. So now you have unrest with different messages coming from every side of the aisle, instead of having one unified message from the top. Trump has broken more rules than the Catholic Church, he could imposed a forceful National lockdown for two weeks that would be strictly enforced to control the spread. Temporary discomfort for a better outcome. But again, he didn’t want to take responsibly. You call these governors who are imposing strict lockdowns “power hungry.” I’d call it leadership.

    The owners are the ones who want to renegotiate. The players just want what they already agreed to. Jerry Reinsdorf should listen to Jerry Reinsdorf.

    In the small victories column, I've made a concerted effort to take at least two walks a day of around a mile and a half each (unlike Lawrence, Kansas, we are allowed outside), and between that and making food at home, I've lost seven pounds of bad weight.

    For the love of God people. STOP REPLYING TO GREG. Dude is getting you all twisted with his shtick, and it is working perfectly for him. Ignore him, and he will slowly fade away. Please, for all of us.

    Ok, to make myself more clear, Biden/Reade stuff ends now. That's not relevant to the pandemic.

    I know you aren't implying this per say, but feels like it needs to be said there is nothing wrong with having that attitude. Make that money.
