    You might find yourself feeling glum today when the Sox don't make the move you were hoping for. When you get there -- hitting "delete" on the "Bryant in a Sox jersey" image you've been working up, burning with envy as the Yankees sign three more players to supercharge their push for third in the AL East -- please just take comfort in the fact that you really have no clue what you're talking about, and a strong track record of being super wrong. Instead of dwelling on the players your team didn't get in the moment, revel in *your* great moments from the season past: cursing the FO in the offseason for failing to convert on CY-level internet troll and Miller Man of the Year candidate Trevor Bauer. Shaking your head as the Sox raided the bargain bin for Carlos f'ing Rodon instead of spending merely triple on Corey Kluber, James Paxton, Garrett Richards or the many other clearly better alternatives obvious to anyone who was not a complete idiot. Or lamenting the Sox's inability to land perfect-fit Marcell Ozuna. Or nodding your head knowingly as you cast your Soxtalk poll vote for the Sox to take third in the AL central in this "development year," when the title clearly goes through the battle-tested Bomba Squad. Close your eyes, inhale deeply, and let the realization of your own ineptitude wash out all the negativity like a mighty tide. Then open them, look at the standings, and draw yourself a nice hot bath. It will all be OK! (Or maybe not, but likely not for the reasons your dumb ass supposes.) Cheers!

    So what you’re saying is Collins didn’t frame the context of the tweet well

    The Sox have been completely exposed and embarrassed in this series, and there is no guarantee that Eloy and Robert will be anywhere close to the players they were when they come back...if they come back at all. Is it time to tear things down and get a haul for Lynn and Rodon at the deadline?

    We’ll bring Jack back, but in exchange, you’re now banned. Seems fair. You in?

    Goodwin will get the headlines but the unsung hero in this game was Reynaldo Lopez. What a job he did.

    Man, it's really pathetic to die on the hill of "Will someone please think of the process?" when someone had their skull cracked open and raped. Brain worms.

    Years from now, you will ask your friends where they were when Voodoo Cane Guy flipped the series for the good guys

    Collins needed to return so that the White Sox could preserve his option status. He didn't spend 20 days in the minors so the option doesn't count. He'll have an option remaining coming into the 2022 season now.

    Just got home from a week long family vacation in New England. Didn't get to see the last 6 games but followed along on Gameday and the Game Threads. Man, people have to stop thinking the sky is falling every time a player has a bad inning. This team is: 5th in MLB/1st in AL in ERA, 2nd in MLB/1st in AL in starter ERA, 10th in MLB/5th in AL in reliever ERA 7th in MLB/3rd in AL in WHIP, 7th in MLB/3rd in AL in HR allowed, 2nd in MLB/1st in AL in K/9, 1st in MLB in K/BB 5th in MLB in OPS, 2nd in MLB in OBP 2nd best record in MLB by only 1/2 game, largest run differential and largest division lead. Enjoy this team. Yes, they do frustrating and/or stupid stuff often but what you apparently don't realize is that other team's players do frustrating and stupid stuff more often. Oh, and congratulations to ron on being my first ever ignore.

    MLB should mandate vaccination and periodic testing for every player. coach, manager and employee in contact with the team. Hundreds of millions of people across the world have been vaccinated to protect themselves and also to help battle a worldwide pandemic. Anti-vax ideology is a joke...just like geocentric, flat earth bullshit and the belief that the Earth is 6,000 years old. If we allow anti-vax ideology to stand we risk losing the battle to a novel virus and its variants. If feels like we are right now looking at the numbers.

    What a moment for Jake Burger. Sox fans had pretty much given up the kid for dead after the first achillies, let alone the second one. The kid got to hit in a freaking made up baseball league for a month, and wasn't even invited to Schaumburg initially. Then he gets the late invite to the camp, and quietly goes about his business there. He shows up in camp this year having a grand total of 200 PAs in professional baseball, all at Low A in 2017. and then proceeds to hit like he hasn't missed a day of baseball. If you can't root for a kid like this, and be happy for his success, who can you root for?

    Why does it matter if we know the lady? They did it as a showing of thanks to an incredibly loyal employee. No one would expect the average fan to know, but I'm sure as shit it meant a lot to that lady and there really was no reason to change it. Life isn't always, or even mostly, about the big stuff. It is the little things that show respect, appreciation and kindness that matter the most. This was a little thing that likely meant a lot to someone, while that sign means jack shit to TLR, so why change it? The fact that you can't understand that isn't surprising, but it doesn't make it meaningless because you think it is.
