    Oh, Daniel... You poor thing.

    Eloy has been a pleasure to watch recently. I'm becoming cautiously optimistic about Collins as well. Cautiously...

    Who are these people...

    Who gives a shit? lol. I don't remember what was talked about during broadcasts much in 2017 either. What if... GOD FORBID... the OP is trying to learn? Startling thought! Isn't it? Get over yourself... Eww. Talk about douche chills. This has been a disgusting display. Imagine for a moment if somebody asked this question to you in person and you responded in this manner. It would totally expose the absurdity of what you are doing. The only way it would be semi-excusable, is if you were autistic. Maybe you are... nothing wrong with that, by the way.

    Who are these people...

    "No offense, but I'm about to say some REAL arrogant, snot-nosed bull shit to you... right now. Despite the fact that you are humbly asking a question, my response is about to demean the shit out of you as a baseball fan. My superiority will be demonstrated. Remember... no offense, though! "
  5. Collins wouldn't have hit during his call-up if you threw a beach ball at him underhanded. He was helpless. You cannot help the "helpless". There's only so much 4 PA's per day can do for a player. There is a line with this stuff. It's not going to magically turn a guy who slashed .077/.226/.192 over 31 of them (with 14 K's) into a good hitter. Acting like the White Sox cheated Collins somehow for not handing an .077 hitter a full-time DH role (and a share of the catching role) who K's nearly 50% of the time, is just silliness. That player either ain't going to make it or he needs to go back down for a total overhaul of his swing. It looks like Collins is having some success with the latter, which is good. However, this wasn't the case of a player who needed PA's. All you had to do was LOOK at the guy trying to hit. He looked more overmatched than a lot of pitchers trying to hit in the National League. The guy had NO chance. Most importantly, him being up here was doing HIM zero good. I think that's the key. He needed a swing overhaul. You don't do that mid-season at the big league level after 31 horrendous career PA's. Hopefully he comes back up and his new approach works out. I'd love to see it. God knows Reed or Skole ain't the answer either.

    White Sox at Twinkees 8/21/19

    I don't see why Lucas Giolito (who we traded Eaton for) should help me get over trading Fernando Tatis Jr. for James Shields. Totally unrelated. It doesn't help me feel better about Tatis that Moncada or Anderson are having big years. We should still have him if we didn't make a total clown show trade... (obviously hindsight is 20-20 but most didn't want to do it)

    White Sox at Twinkees 8/21/19

    Anderson should make the 502 PA's required to challenge Lamahieu for the batting title. He's at .332 and Lamahieu is at .338. I know... I know... But let me dream lol

    White Sox at Twinkees 8/21/19

    Yeah, I was talking to a real cynical White Sox fan. Who was talking about how the team just "hasn't shown any signs of improvement". He justified this by citing how our win-loss record will only be marginally better and that our expected win-loss is currently even worse than that. "We've barely improved and we're playing over our heads". Is essentially how he put it. I was just baffled by how thick headed you must be to look at it like that. I mean, last year, how many big league players did we have in our lineup every day? Honestly, Omar f'ing Narvaez wound up our best player with Abreu having his worst season to date. lol. This year Moncada has been magnificent, McCann has been one of the best catchers in baseball, Eloy will lead the AL in HR's for a rookie (despite probably playing only 110 games or so), Leury will post a WAR around 3. Giolito has become a bonafide stud. Bummer and Colome are elite relievers. Meanwhile, a huge chunk of our talent has either just arrived (Cease) or is dominating in the minors and will arrive soon. It's just wild to me that you can't look at this team right now and feel more positive than last year. I mean, what even could you possibly point to from a developmental standpoint and say it didn't go well?

    Sox v Angels: Schur thing

    Engel is a far superior defender. While Cordell is only marginally better at hitting.
  10. No doubt, he plays it up... But I've listened to him do this for years on college basketball games.
  11. Uh... have you seen him call college basketball games? It's the exact same thing. This is not a one time deal. This is who he is every time he's ever had a mic or camera put on him. I'm sure he was told "be yourself" and Benneti was told to "let him go"... but that's really all it takes. He's genuine with all of this "I'm a free spirit hippy" stuff.
  12. Giolito has evolved into the right-handed Robbie Ray.

    Field of Dreams Game: Sox vs. Yankees 8.13.20

    How many celebs are really going to go and spend an overnight in Dubuque County, Iowa? I'm sure a few of the more legitimate baseball fan celebs will make an appearance. However, I don't exactly get the feeling that TMZ is going to find the event worthy enough to unleash their paparazzi all over Dyersville. lol

    Christ almighty, bah humbug to you as well. lol Yes, this is very unique and I love it. Combines a fictional/fantasy masterpiece about a love for the game of baseball with the real thing. What kind of a devoted contrarian does it take to not love this? You're really complaining about the "gate" it will cost the White Sox for one game? lol. Goodness gracious. Bah humbug, indeed.
  15. Welp... Giolito has basically pitched himself out of a QS chance. He'll be at 70 pitches by the end of this inning.
