    9-19-21 White Sox Winner !! 7-2 over Texas

    I’m not saying there was no good food, just that the options were surprisingly sparse and unvaried given the available space. I’d estimate guaranteed rate field has triple or quadruple the options on the main concourse.

    It really is awful. I can’t believe they spent like a billion dollars on that monstrosity. I went all three games. The place from the outside looks either like a giant outdoor grill, or a warehouse, I can’t decide which. Inside, it reminiscent of Minute Maid Park, without any of the charm. I had seats in the second row of the main level, which is not the field level. Field level seats all run in the hundreds of dollars per ticket, and I honestly can’t believe anyone pays it. So the main level is like 20 or 30 feet above field level. The view was fine, it just felt odd to be so high up in seats that good. The food offerings are sparse. Very little of note, and nothing to even come close to competing with Comiskey. So much wasted space on the concourse, where in Chicago you’d have a half dozen additional small stands offering interesting food, here there’s just…empty space. Lots more bars than Globe Life Park, which was good. But almost every bar (they’re almost all 30 or so feet long) have a diagonal support beam in the middle of them, which the bartender has to duck around if they need something from the other end. I asked one bartender if she ever hit her head on it, and she said “all the time.” Just a stupid design. The seats are very thin, akin to what they’re putting on discount airlines. And they’re a bit bendy, so when the person sitting in front of you shifts position, your drink, if it’s full and in the attached cupholder, tends to slosh. Maybe this happens elsewhere, but I don’t recall it being so pronounced. On a positive note, they do have a flat spot most of the way around the concourse where you could stand and watch from the concourse and have a “table” as it were for your food and drink I had fun watching the Sox take 2/3, but spent much of the time dismayed at the staggering waste of so much money to build that place. It could have, and should have, been so much better.

    Fun game to be at in person. Loud White Sox contingent there this evening.

    9/4- White Sox at Royals, 6:10

    Last night was a shitshow, and started so late that I bailed when we got down 5-0. I’d like to watch some semi-competent baseball tonight. Let’s hope that’s what happens. The good news is, this team seems to rebound from poor showings rather nicely most of the time.

    In Defense of Leury

    He’s playing an excellent shortstop in TA’s absence, and can be plugged in anywhere. Yes, I think TLR has penciled him in a bit more than perhaps necessary this year, but man, a guy like Leury is super valuable.

    Cease this year's Contreras?

    Whar Leury? Whar?!?! I am kidding of course.

    That's a that'll do Liam White Sox Victory

    Be nice if he could catch the ball, though, since he’s, you know, a catcher and all. Seven passed balls in what? A month of work?

    Sox at Twins 8/9, 7:10

    Hey now, if you’re going to be all reasonable and whatnot, I don’t know if you are going to fit in around here.

    8/3 Game Thread Sox vs Royals 7:10 1st pitch

    I don’t mean to be insulting towards the man, but what is the point of Jake Lamb on this team at this point?
