  • What do you like about Soxtalk?
    I have done a lot of lurking between WSI and Soxtalk. I am not sure why, but I feel more at home here. I think the overall mood is not as pessimistic and a little more mature here. I feel like I can relate a little better with some of the older posters. I have never actually met a Chisox fan in person, so I find the information valuable here. I have been a fan since 1960 (missed it by that much). I caught a foul ball in a game in Toronto. I had an old Comisky Park seat shipped to my home in Ottawa. If they ever won, I think I might split in two. Needless to say, I am passionate about them. It is nice to see similar passion, even if only in an electronic sense.

    White Sox Radio Headed to ESPN 1000

    I used to grab a ball, the family dog and a transistor radio and head down to the local baseball diamond, where I would use the backstop as my antenna booster.

    White Sox Radio Headed to ESPN 1000

    Bob Elson and AM 1000 were my only day to day conduit to the White Sox for my first 10 years a fan. I've lived my whole life approximately 400 miles and 600 miles from Chicago as the crow flies (Toronto and Ottawa Ont.). Every night I would tune in with varying degrees of success. Often good, frequently 😃crystal clear. I still have a radio tab set to 1000 on my car radio, although now I tape every game using my "too much TV" cable provider. Glad it's back. Now I'll have a better chance to hear some Sox talk on those occasions when I am driving at night. And we all know the glory years are coming. 😃

  7. Santana ducks under high pitches like a little leaguer. And it works.

    Smokey Burgess worked for a couple of seasons. It's been downhill ever since.

    I am also expecting horrors related to Eloy's acrobatics and Ricky's lack of urgency.
