    GT 6/25: BAL @ Sox (1:10pm)

    This is as done as I've ever heard Jason. Just openly questioning and criticizing TLR, and a hawk esque pause when Jose walked a guy after giving up the game. ".... SOooo........."

    GT 6/25: BAL @ Sox (1:10pm)

    So he liked his second PA enough to bat him leadoff today, but not enough to let him play at all yesterday? I'm 100% convinced this is a middle finger to Rick Hahn. Honestly, that's preferable to just more blatant incompetence too.
  4. This is the exact conversation we need, and the exact conversation that can never happen, because Jerry hired his BFF at manager and made him Rick's de facto boss.

    Lenyn Sosa joins the White Sox (Update Pg. 5)

    Sosa has been a slow starter at every level so far (in part because he has been young for each level), and now he's making far and away the biggest jump yet. In his first month at each level, he OPSed .456 at Kannapolis, .580 at W-S, and .625ish at Birmingham. He also has a new swing that is only 60 games old. Certainly there will be some kinks to iron out in the new approach, and major league scouts and pitchers will be ready to find and exploit those holes way faster and more aggressively than AA pitchers. I could see this guy being a stud 2B for us by the end of 2023. But the evidence says this first trip to the majors could be rough, and I think the board will turn on him by week 2 if he is playing every day.

    Doug Eddings must have bought stock in robot ump companies.
  9. I believe TLR credited the stats department last week with coming up with this strategy. Basically throw VV one time through the order, then throw Davis Martin. Second VV "start" in a row that they have done this, and VV has given up 1 hit, 1 walk, and 0 runs in 6 combined innings.
  10. Oh, so that's what Robert learned when he said Moncada was mentoring him
  11. hot damn, I missed baseball being fun to watch.

    Sox vs Blue Jays 6:07, Giolito vs Gausman

    Lowest baseball IQ team in the majors. Maybe the minors too. Whose job is it to be responsible for the team's fundamentals again?

    Lawsuit Filed Against the Sox

    I'm definitely not someone who thinks we have to base our personal opinion on the court of law. Innocent until proven guilty is for the courts, we as people just have to look at the facts available and make the best judgment we can. That said, in this case, with the facts presented so far, I'm really not seeing enough to decide either way. Quite frankly, the car jacking thing is just really throwing me off. Is his allegation that Rick Hahn made up the drug/gambling/etc addiction thing as cover to fire him for being gay? And if that is the case, why is the lawsuit also for age AND disability discrimination too? Having all three makes it seem like he is fishing, but perhaps it is standard legal practice to just lump it all together? He does have the one executive who allegedly said he was fired for his sexuality, which is enough that I won't dismiss the allegations as fake. But unless more information comes out I think my personal judgment has to be not guilty. Not innocent, but something doesn't pass the smell test here. Hopefully more information comes out now that the case is public, because it really seems like there is a puzzle piece missing here.
