    8/4 Sox vs Brewers GT

    Did that end up being an error on Colome? I hope it was. The reason he didn't touch it was because he played it so poorly. Not because it was a tough play. Looked like it should be routine.

    Haha there was a player named Jesus Colome though...
  3. Jeff Dunham??? Seriously - been enjoying Stone and Benetti all year. I have MLB TV and am constantly jumping around and the other guys seem pretty stale.

    Cordero with the rolled up sleeve is hilarious. Just has to be the gun show with him 24/7.

    Isn't that Capra?
  8. Unfortunately Florida is quickly catching up to Illinois. And deaths have tended to lag cases. Take a comparison with New York and Florida. Florida now has more cases recorded than New York. However, New York has 166 deaths per 100,000 people. While Florida only has 31 deaths per 100,000. You would expect those numbers to start getting closer together over time. Hard to see Florida's health care response being that much better than New York's. If the gap between Florida and New York on deaths per 100,000 is only split in half, deaths would reach over 20,000 in Florida. Up from the 6,585 today. And of course the more Florida health systems become overwhelmed, the worse they will be able to handle patients with COVID. This will also have negative impacts for patients that need medical support for reasons unrelated to COVID. Up to now, Florida has 2,148 total cases of COVID per 100,000 people. That number is 1,409 for Illinois. In the last 7 days Florida has 334 cases per 100,000. That number is only 78 for Illinois. Florida also had almost 1000 deaths in the last week. While Illinois had 117. The only thing Florida may have going for it, is that while the virus may be evolving to be more contagious, it may also be evolving to be less deadly. More deadly forms of the virus have a harder time spreading. Hopefully their health system has also learned from other jurisdictions that got hit hard earlier. Anyhow, take all of that with a grain of salt. I'm not an epidemiologist. It also doesn't mean Illinois couldn't slip back into serious trouble. Sorry - I know this doesn't have anything to do with the White Sox.

    Thanks bud! Things are good. Hope all is well with you too. Pandemic is finally giving me some more time in life to check back in with my Sox. I had still been following them, but more casually in recent years. However, that didn't stop me from visiting US Cellular for the first time to see them a few years back. They lost, but it was Grateful Dead night. lol I also saw them lose twice last year in Kansas City. Detwiler and Reynaldo were the starters, so no surprise there. But talent like Moncada and Eloy gave me hope. Cheers!

    And this ball game is O-VA!
  11. I live in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. Around one million people live here. We have had our struggles for sure, but right now we turn around test results in 24 hours 34% of the time. 92% of the time in 48 hours. In addition, when someone does test positive we are able to reach all of their contacts through contact tracing 85% of the time within 24 hours of a positive test. Part of the reason we are able to do these things quickly is we keep the cases down so we don't overwhelm the system. *knocks on wood*

    Nice mask wearing there by Francona... 🤦‍♂️
  13. What exactly is the rule there? He misses first so he is automatically out? Or he was tagged out before he came back to touch the bag?

    Adam Engel -- how much longer does he have as a regular?

    I logged onto soxtalk for the first time in what seems like years just to come on here and figure out why the heck Adam Engel is a starting Major League Baseball player... what the heck
  15. World Series here we come!
