    MLB cheating scandal

    I hate this response. I understand the sanctity of a clubhouse just as well as people in the MLB. I get it... and anyone who has played at a high level in the past 25 years has witnessed cheating (whether PED's or whatever) and certainly didn't speak up against their own. But, now that it has come to light there's just no reason to cite the sanctity of the clubhouse as something that bothers you about Fiers. What Fiers did was right, and it doesn't mean Keuchel was wrong (disagree with Balta here) but him not accepting that it was wrong and it's OK to tell the truth about cheating in a clubhouse bothers me a little. I understand 100% why people didn't come forward, and I don't believe it reflects negatively on everyone of them (we're all moralistically superior in our own minds than in the face of reality), but I believe it reflects negatively on you if you get angry at the one person being honest.

    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    Ja Morant just turned 20 before this season started; despite coming out after his Sophomore year, Ja was younger than most college freshman. I point that out because I was comparing Ja's rookie year so far to some other young greats. Bron was 1 year younger, but Ja has a higher PER (not a perfect stat) as a rookie than Lebron James so far. That's pretty amazing given how damn good Lebron was as a Rookie.

    I said this at the time of the draft, but Zion Williamson has the best post footwork to enter the NBA since The Dream. The way he uses his body and feet is something that should be taught to all young bigs.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    I'll say, fingers crossed, I've recommended Fin Du Monde to a lot of light beer and IPA strictly drinkers, and they have really enjoyed it. It's a little more boozy, but it hides it really well and you don't taste it. I'm not a big fan of big hopped beers; I think that's a much more acquired taste, but beligums are yeastier so if that's a taste someone absolutely hates they may not like it. Check back and let me know what you think! I love that the best belgium in the world is made by Canadians; Unibroue in general makes a lot of great beers. Before I got into my current career, I spent about 3 years running a restaurant group in Chicago and I probably sampled about 5,000 beers in that time; best perk of that job by far.

    St Bernardus makes a Xmas ale; it's good. I enjoy it. The one I'm citing above is the ABT 12; https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/259/1708/ It's not quite as malty as the xmas ale; a little more yeasty which I like. They're both quads so really similar.

    If you've never had it, give Founders Solid Gold a try for a lager/pilsner style beer.

    Appeasing the masses is much more important than niche markets when you become that large; it hurts your portfolios diversity, but it creates a far more consistent product and that's what mass produced breweries need to do; make sure their offerings are consistent and drinkable by the majority.

    I'm a beer snob, I admit it and I know it's an asshole trait. I drink Fin Du Monde religiously, Founders (pretty much anything, because for my money that's the best brewery in the world), and in general I love belgium tripels and quads. I don't enjoy drinking a lot of low ABV beers because of the calories and it makes me feel bloated and full. I like high ABV beers in general; have 2 or 3 and set for the night. Triple Karm, Fin Du Monde, St Bernardus are three of my favorites. Fin du Monde the best beer in the world for my money and imo. I think Goose Island is too passive, doesn't take a lot of chances/risks, and tend to make safe beers. I like Founders because they make amazing beer (CBS, KBS, All Day) but they also make a lot of creative beers and take chances.

    Cubs signing Souza to an MLB deal; got to figure that puts a small damper on them being Castellanos suitors.

    Goose Island is a pretty bland brewery overall but I'll definitely be buying this just because.

    Kopech Interview Today

    I don't love McNeil and Parkins, but this is a great interview with Kopech. He really dives into how he has grown and matured, and discusses his battles with depression.
  13. Hey guys, wanted to bump this forward to see if people were interested and if we could get a roll call of all interested with their preferred buy-in.

    2019-2020 Official NBA Thread

    Yeah, I'm certainly not buying that his jumper has changed in the off-season; he still was shooting the same flat, dart, at the bucket from 3. His jumper is still too mechanical for me. He's so gifted in the paint with his footwork that his jumper really isn't that important, and it looks much more natural within 14 feet than from deep, but I just don't see how a body type like that can hold up over a season with the immense pressure he puts on his legs and lower body. I hope he has a nice career and he certainly is unique and special to watch; I just think Ja is the safer bet, and I think we will be looking back remembering Ja in 20 years as a combination of Chris Paul with the athleticism of a Westbrook.

    Zion debut was fun, but Zion isn't a good shooter and shouldn't be taking 4 threes in a game - he certainly won't be going 4/4 very often. That boy is so thicccccc its absolutely wild. I don't think hes going to have a very extended career of explosiveness with his body type. I liked Morant more in the draft, and absolutely would take Morant over him for the next 10 years. Zion is exciting and fun, and the way he uses his feet and body in the paint is impeccable and exciting. I just dont see how he holds up over full seasons and multiple years. To put his size in perspective, he's the same height as Jordan but 100 pounds heavier.

    So he didn't insinuate that trans people are acting that way to abuse women and be creepy? Gotcha. He didn't insinuate that Muslims = Nazi's? Gotcha. He didn't insinuate that media members should be lynched because they don't agree with his views? Gotcha. Spare me your bullshit. Thanks. You'd be nuts to think Curt Schilling doesn't like Muslims and discriminates against them? My lord you are a blowhard clown. "Just retweeting an edgy shirt." STFU. When you have tons of followers, retweeting a promotion of violence isn't just doing something edgy; it's a promotion of the act to those who may be less "stable and reasonable." Enough with your excuses. Your blinders are on, and I'm not going to waste another second of my life going back and forth with someone promoting this BS. Nothing funnier than when someone who is close minded, racist and bigoted is critical of those who are accepting by saying "why don't you accept me!"

    MLB Pipeline Prospects

    1. All prospects have risk 2. There are more All-stars in baseball than 70 grades given out by FG's by nearly 20 times. 3. Scouting should try to be right, not cautiously optimistic 4. It's OK to be wrong about a guy and evaluators need to get over that fear. 5. Robert is a 55 on FG; so he's no where near a 70. 6. Every prospect has concerns, and in what world does Robert have a .310 OBP? He is projected for a .317 (still low) but he was running 340-380 last year. And yes, no prospect is perfect so Robert deserves a 70; his ceiling is elite. 70 isn't too high for generational tools. This thought process that if he doesn't pan out, then my grade looks stupid is naive. Luis Robert is projected to be a 3 WAR player in the MLB as a 22 year old rookie; if that's not a 70 talent, then nothing is. It's one of the rosiest projections for a prospect I've seen.

    Just STFU with this BS. Why is this stuff on Soxtalk? No reason to promote this kind of garbage. Hate and discrimination isn't political; it's morally wrong. Hating Muslims or blacks isn't a "right or left issue;" it's a piece of shit and not piece of shit issue. As is the case with most ignorant racist pieces of trash, proof and facts don't matter. Schilling has promoted violence against people different from him or those who have disagreed with him. He spread stereotypes about people who he didn't understand or agree with. He promoted the lynching of media members... He spread some perverted connotation that transgender people were predators. Schilling is trash. I don't understand many things in life, but I don't draw conclusions because I'm scared, ignorant or naive.
  19. I don't read it that way at all. Mazara hasn't earned that right with his play and has to earn it. Anointing him the long term answer would be bad management.

    Steve Stone Hinting At Another Move: Not Puig / Castellanos

    I think I'll make that my signature to humble myself whenever I speak confidently against someone else's opinion... "Well Ray Ray, you thought only 8 position players were playing at a time in the AL for like 3 seconds."

    If there's a max of 13, how would the White Sox only have 4 bench spots? They'd have 5. Engel Mendick McCann Leury Collins If you want a bat that can play OF then Collins goes down. Engel should be on the roster (cant believe I'm saying that)

    With the 3 batter rule, why would the White Sox - or any team for that matter - carry 14 pitchers and 12 PP's?
