  1. FA starts today, the draft happened. I will try not be a downer, but my NBA fandom took a ginormous hit and I'm trying to recover because sports should be fun.

    Sox playoff tickets on Sale Wed 2pm

    Yeah my playoff tix are in the upper corners, but I'm still floored with excitement. Because this is how age works: in 2000 I was 14 and couldn't go in 2005 I was in college out of state. in 2008 I was in college out of state. In 2020 we know Now, in 2021 I'm a grown ass man with my own income and can just make sure I get playoff tickets to potentially a world series game. It's insanely exciting.

    AND THAT'S A BENCH CLEARING WHITE SOX WINNER!!!

    While we miraculously could back end up with a 2 seed still, it would take virtually winning out to finish 3 games ahead of the astros, and them going 2-4. Basically I'm saying let's go into the post season with our bullpen rested. But yeah I guess I'd rather have checked out someone like edwards jr who has been pitching ok in AAA. edit: well the benefit of wright is he can go a lot of innings so if one goes away from us he can just be the guy pitching.

    2021 NFL Season Thread

    My theory that I believe has like a 50% shot at being true is Nagy thought he would trick the Browns, who would expect their offense to be tailored to the strengths of a mobile QB, by instead running what Dalton would run. And then when it wasn't working, he doesn't know what to do because he's like Ron Burgundy where he can only run what he put on his playsheet.

    Gio is our ace

    Also yes I agree with Giolito - Rodon 1-2 Lynn 3 Cease 4

    Gio is our ace

    I love Giolito and Lynn mainly because I have really high confidence that they can figure stuff out when it gets out of whack. Like the anti keuchels

    It’s so fun every time Billy gets on base especially when it’s ahead of TA, just seems like an automatic run.

  20. I barely realized sunday ended much of our minor league seasons since none are in the playoffs. DSL is still playing. Anyway, here are my awards for best minor league years. I'm including guys that may have been called up to majors and succeeded as a factor in this, because that's what the minors are for. I'm not including rehabbing major league players though, but Yas was probably our best catcher. What a nice guy. My All Star Team For Minor Leagues - Name / Level / Age : Notes C - Carlos Perez / AA / 25 : Slashed . .264/.313/.418 in birmingham, finding his best power to date. He has always made great contact with just a 7% strikeout rate. TLR raved about his defense in ST, and I honestly have no idea why Nate Nolan is in AAA over him, but he plays a lot in Birmingham. Other Considerations: Xavier Fernandez, Adam Hackenberg 1B - Gavin Sheets / AAAMLB / 25: We know about gavin sheets. Other Considerations: Harvin Mendoza - just not enough power 2B - Yolbert Sanchez / A+ AA / 24: I struggled with this one since at his age he should have done this, but considering how poorly he hit for power in Cuba and his start to the white sox, his . 343 .369 .469 mark in Birmingham makes him seem like he's still on the way up Other Considerations: Lenyn Sosa SS - TIE Jose Rodriguez and Romy Gonzales : I'm not choosing here. Romy went for 20/20 in the tough power environment of Bham, crushed Charlotte, and is now in the Majors. He's played 5 positions this year. Jose rodriguez as a 20 year old went across 3 leagues, with steady power and unbelievable consistency. Other considerations: Colson Montgomery - good approach to start young career 3b - Jake Burger / AAA MLB / 25: we all know jake burger Other Considerations: Bryan Ramos OF (3) Luis Mieses /A+ A A+ / 21: After an awful start, Mieses went down to A and dominated, and since coming up has been a doubles machine. Finished year with a respectable .270 / .312 /.463 across both levels Yoelque Cespedes / A+ AA / 23: after a hot start in BHam his power slowed. He probably could be in AAA to start the year. I'm not really sold by the package, but boy is our outfield bad. Micker Adolfo / AA AAA / 25: Monster power this year, monster Ks. But I will give him credit, he cut down Ks a bit in AAA. But 24 Home Runs across two levels, and they didn't start until May. SP: Norge Vera - please enjoy the tax money Emilio Vargas / AA / 24: is he a prospect? I unno. Does he deserve to be on here after K'ing 99 in 83 IP, with a 2.9 ERA and our pitching being bad? Yes Kade McClure / AA AAA / 25: He was not very good in AAA, but again, we have no pitching. He k'd 77 in 63 ip in Bham, and he's tall. I think he can be a RP. Burke was good, but it was ACL RP: Theo Denlinger K'd 26 in 14 IP Alec Hansen is intriguing to me again, he came on real strong at the end, and found control and was k'ing people left and right Gil Luna struck out 14/9 and finally gave up an ER a few nights ago. Highlights: Infielders Lowlights: Pitching, pitching, pitching
  21. the shirts are actually nice, the hats are that perfect kind of winning hat ugly
  22. I keep thinking about all those hypotheticals during the rebuild of "would you rather be the braves winning the division every year or win WS once and be out 5 years" and everyone being like "of course the braves" Love this board forever for always being entertaining, but it's been a lot nicer with the sox good and just speaking to non-diehards who are just like "sure is a fun team"! Yeah! It is, winning baseball rules. And it can make you miserable, but it rules.
  23. Woo HOOO Go out and have a night boys...in.....cleveland...oh Probably for the best.
  24. well, not that there was any real threat, but I would feel good that an ownership group with Hobson would not move the sox.
