    Sox vs Minny 7/4/22 game thread Sweet Home Chicago, without Tony

    The schedule should keep them within 2.5-4.5 games back the rest of the way without much doing. Winning wont excite me, but run differential will. That’s the rope for me.
  2. Type of game where everyone in the lineup eats. Well……

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    speaking of Colson Montgomery, you can call him Mr 100 for now. He made it.

    How fast is Montomery? He doesn't look 'slow', but he did do that Madrigalesque wired up segment when he was claiming to be very slow. Slow might inhibit his outfield career.

    you're on vacation, chilling by the pool watching the game, and 2 hookers come up to you offering anal. What do you do? What. Do. You. Do?

    Fegan, via The Athletic, said second baseman Lenyn Sosa is a prospect that could be traded in the coming weeks. While trading away the promising 22-year-old might surprise some fans, Fegan said a potential move would be due to Chicago being "light on near-major-league-ready pieces." Sosa has been absolutely crushing it in Double-A Birmingham this season. The Venezuelan phenom is tied for the Barons' team lead with 14 home runs, pacing all of his teammates with 48 RBIs as well. That isn't even to mention his .331/.384/.549 slash line and 141 total bases amassed. Sosa's efforts earned him a call-up to the majors just over a week ago, but it didn't go as planned. He recorded a hit, two runs and one walk in four games (12 at-bats), batting .083. Nevertheless, it's hard not to imagine him producing better than that when he's called up next. Parting ways with a top prospect like Sosa would be tough, but it's worth it if the return helps the White Sox return to the playoffs. The 2022 MLB trade deadline takes place at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 2. https://theathletic.com/3388169/2022/06/29/mlb-trade-deadline-moves/?source=emp_shared_article

    Some day an author will do a deep dive on Oscar Colas and get to the bottom of this. 🥸

    It’s really difficult seeing him have more than 1 or 2 good seasons in him at the most. I would never resign this guy.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Frank Thomas skipped AAA. All that matters is if a guy can play if called up. Sosa never really had a chance. Colas should be encouraged if players in the org can skip AAA. OTOH, if Colas is friends with Yolbert…..That conversation between them might be negative if they feel stuck

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    I would bet money it’s a misunderstanding as far as what the story is actually about. Even if he was held back too long (for his taste), he can’t be stupid enough to start a self immolation process at an important part of his career that is so far successful. Impatience can’t make a sane person do this right?

    If Eloy embraces his future as a first base/DH guy, Im down.
