    COVID Thread Part Deux

    I wouldn't use the word "stops" as that implies 0% transmission which isn't the case. It does, as you noted, greatly decrease the spread. However, if enough people got vaccinated, it would, in a short period of time, stop the spread.

    Probables for Sox vs. Indians

    Just punt game 1 and go all in on game 2 if they lose. Start Collins, Sheets, Leury, Goodwin and Hamilton all in Game 1, and if they happen to win, start them all again in Game 2.

    With Tampa's pen, you're better off playing them in as long of a series as possible.

    Rodon watch: Starting 9/29 vs Reds

    Teams value draft picks more now than at any other time, so I would think having a QO attached to Rodon would hurt his market, which should make him more willing to sign.

    GT 9/21: SOX @ DET, 12:10

    Potential Clinch Day! Keuchel vs Alexander In case you weren't already aware, this game got moved up from 5:40 to 12:10 due to rain on the way (the rain that we're getting right now) If the Sox win, I wonder if NBCSC will be on the air live from the team hotel at/near the end of the KC/CLE game (5:10 start)? Would be fun to see Jason/Steve live on the air at the clinching moment.

    Do the White Sox have new minority ownership?

    I believe that is now called Beijing revenue.

    How about we get off the ledge.

    Year / Win Total / September Win % / Result 1983 / 99 / .786 / Lost ALCS 1993 / 94 / .607 / Lost ALCS 2000 / 95 / .571 / Lost ALDS 2005 / 99 / .586 / Won WS 2008 / 89 / .444 / Lost ALDS The clearest comparison to this season is the 2008 team, with a sub-.500 September and < 90 wins, but we've also seen teams win 99 games and have hot Septembers go nowhere in the playoffs. I will say one big difference between 2008 and 2021 is not having to play a tiebreaker game and burn a top starter right before the playoffs. Despite Keuchel's struggles and Rodon's health status, I'm more concerned about hitting than pitching, due to the bullpen depth. Over the last 30 days, TA has been so-so, Cesar, Eloy and Vaughn have been awful. At least two of those guys have to turn it around.

    9/22: Magic number = 2 Today is, in theory, the second day the Sox have a chance to clinch, but the odds of even one of the Sox-Detroit and Cleveland-KC games is almost zero, let alone both. Houston is now within 2.5 games of Tampa for the #1 seed. In the Wild Card race Boston is in the first spot 1.5 games ahead of Toronto in the second spot. New York is 0.5 back, with Oakland and Seattle both 3 back. Over in the National League, the Giants are in front of the Dodgers by 1, with both having clinched at least a WC spot. St. Louis holds the 2nd WC spot, with Cincinnati 4 back, Philly 4.5 back, and San Diego 5 back. Philly 3 behind Atlanta in the East.

    The game can't officially get cancelled until after the Sox clinch, so no. I think they ultimately make it up next Friday as a straight DH, with Detroit getting to be the "home" team for one of the games.

    GT 9/21: SOX @ DET, 12:10

    Fry pitching a second inning was never going to work out well. With today's game 99.9% likely to be cancelled, I don't know why someone else didn't get that inning.

    9-22-2021 White Sox @ Detroit 12:10 PM Postponed

    There's not going to be a game today. I'm thinking they might just play a straight DH next Friday and have Detroit be the home team for one of the games.

    That's fine. 9 fewer innings that have to be pitched.

    Engel returns, Romy to Charlotte

    First game back he was 1-4 with a 2B and played flawless RF. If that's 50% Engel then I can't wait to see 100% Engel.

    This was my 3rd straight gamethread loss. I may need to bench myself for the rest of the season.
  16. CentralChamps21

    GT 9/21: SOX @ DET, 12:10

    More concerned right now that he can handle RF full speed. His timing at the plate will improve with time.

    That's on the plus channel. I don't have Hulu but I'd imagine you have both the regular and plus channel.

    OK, damage limited. Now get some runs!

    Do the White Sox have new minority ownership?

    That's not generally how companies work. If nobody owns more than 50%, then the person who has the support of at least 51% of the shares is in charge. You could own 49% of a company with the other 51% split among 10 people, but if those 10 people all fucking hate you, you aren't in charge of anything.

    9/20/21 White Sox @ Tigers 5:40pm

    Offense needs to get more than 3 runs as well.

    That's some sort of fanstasy sports site. Didn't see anything about this.

    I've heard no such thing. Where did you read this? Please provide a link.
